Everything you need to know

General Information

A Silver Bullet is every Werewolf's weakness, as demonstrated in Terraria (applies 3x damage exclusively to desktop, mobile, and console).

Silver Bullets are easily accessible in the Pre-Hardmode and are the counterpart to Tungsten Bullets. This ammunition also deals +2DMG and is faster than a Musket Ball.

Type: Ammunition
Mode: Pre-Hardmode

Strengths & Weaknesses of the Silver Bullet


  • Stronger and faster than Musket Balls.
  • Deals 3x more damage to Werewolves (desktop, mobile, console).


  • Inflicts lesser knockback than Tungsten Bullets.
  • Needs an Extractinator in worlds without Silver to obtain the material for crafting (3DS, old-gen consoles).

How to get the Silver Bullet

The Arms Dealer sells Silver Bullets for 15 Copper Coins each. The stock is only available during Blood Moons in Pre-Hardmode and anytime during Hardmode.

Pots may sometimes contain Silver Bullets during Hardmode.

Shadow Chests from the Corruption Biome also have a 50% chance to yield Silver Bullets (50-74) in worlds with Silver.

With an Iron Anvil or Lead Anvil, combine Silver Bar (1) and Musket Ball (70) to produce Silver Bullets (70).
