Terraria (Wiki): Zombie Arm
Everything you need to know
The Zombie Arm is a melee weapon that pierces enemies and stabs four consecutive times.
The Zombie Arm is a sword whose stats are comparable to a Tungsten Broadsword but has less knockback, range, and speed. It is the only component in crafting the Whoopie Cushion. A Zombie Arm cannot autoswing. Its attack reaches three tiles in radius. At an optimal distance, the Zombie Arm can pierce two enemies. However, multiple bodies will be damaged should they all line up for the player.
When normally used, the Zombie Arm will not emit light, and attacks do not go through walls.
Combat-wise, the Zombie Arm’s decent damage makes it effective against slow-moving enemies. All Flask items will imbue their unique effects since the Zombie Arm is a melee weapon.
The Zombie Arm is best modified with Legendary for overall stats improvement.
Strengths & Weaknesses of the Zombie Arm
- Great against enemies with low health.
- Offers higher base damage than Pre-Hardmode Wood Swords.
- Tricky to obtain at the early stages of the game.
- Better melee weapons exist for waves of enemies.
How to get the Zombie Arm
The Zombie Arm is dropped by Zombies once slain (0.4%). In Master Mode and Expert Mode, some zombies use the Zombie Arm - dealing more damage within a longer range versus others without the weapon. However, it does not increase the chance of a zombie dropping the Zombie Arm.
