Terraria (Wiki): Bladed Glove


Everything you need to know

General Information

The Bladed Glove is a rare fast-hitting melee weapon with a very short range that pierces enemies.

The Bladed Glove is considered a weaker counterpart of the Fetid Baghnakhs. A Bladed Glove can autoswing. Its attack reaches two tiles in radius. At an optimal distance, the Bladed Glove can pierce two enemies. However, multiple bodies will be damaged should they all line up for the player.

When normally used, the Bladed Gloves will not emit light, and attacks do not go through walls.

Combat-wise, the Bladed Glove's quick swing speed and melee attack speed modifiers (like those provided by the Shadow armor) significantly increase its usefulness and potency. Its fast use time and strong knockback make it reliable for fighting waves of enemies. Unless the player is farming them for money with the Lucky Coin or its upgrades, it is unwise to use the Bladed Glove against most Hardmode enemies who are immune to knockback or have high defense. All Flask items will imbue their unique effects since the Bladed Glove is a melee weapon.

The Bladed Glove's high speed and damage output makes it effective against Pre-Hardmode melee enemies.

The Bladed Glove is best modified with Legendary for overall stats improvement.

Strengths & Weaknesses of the Bladed Glove


  • Fastest cooldown usage among all Pre-Hardmode Melee Weapons.
  • High DPS.
  • Perfect against waves of enemies.


  • Tricky to obtain at early stages.
  • Better melee weapons exist for waves of enemies.

How to get the Bladed Glove

The Bladed Glove is dropped by any weak enemy (0.05%) during Halloween Event. On The Constant seed, the drop chance is increased to a 1% chance. A good way to farm this weapon is to use the Goblin Invasion because all enemies are eligible for its drop and they spawn frequently. As with all rare drops, killing enemies during a Blood Moon is another way to farm this item. The spawn rate will rise even further with the help of a Water Candle and a Battle Potion. It can be obtained as early as Pre-Hardmode.
