Everything you need to know

General Information

High armor value slows down the player from defeating some enemies in Terraria, and this is where Ichor Bullets come in. Contact with a hostile will inflict the Ichor debuff, effectively reducing armor by 15 (desktop, mobile, console) / 20 (3DS, old-gen consoles). From the base 13DMG, an Ichor Bullet could deal with up to 21 (desktop, mobile, console) / 23 (3DS, old-gen consoles).

In combat, however, treating Ichor Bullets as secondary ammo is advisable because of the debuff. The main ammunition should preferably be Crystal Bullets or stronger counterparts.

Some bosses, including Celestial Pillars, Lunatic Cultist, and The Destroyer, are immune to the Ichor debuff. The player is also immune from debuff once Mimics deflect an Ichor Bullet.

Type: Ammunition
Mode: Hardmode

  • Inflicted debuff significantly reduces an enemy’s armor.

  • Not all Bosses can get the armor-reducing buff upon contact.
