Everything you need to know

General Information

One Crystal Bullet splits into three tiny shards that deal 50% of the base damage upon enemy or block contact.

Before combat, choose a weapon with a good damage output to strengthen the Crystal Shards further. It will result in a faster victory against Bosses with large hitboxes like the Wall of Flesh and Skeletron Prime.

Type: Ammunition
Mode: Hardmode

Strengths & Weaknesses of the Crystal Bullet


  • Crystal Shards can deal damage to enemies through walls.
  • Perfect against aggressive Bosses that will chase the player.
  • Great against many Pre-Hardmode Bosses like the Wall of Flesh.


  • Not great against stationary Bosses as Crystal Shards tend to bounce in the opposite direction upon contact.
  • Lesser Crystal Shards upon initial contact (desktop, mobile, console).

How to get the Crystal Bullet

At a Mythril Anvil or Orichalcum Anvil, combine Crystal Shard (1) and Musket Ball (100 (desktop, mobile, console) / 50 (3DS, old-gen consoles) to create 100 (desktop, mobile, console) / 50 (3DS, old-gen consoles) Crystal Bullets.
