The Blade of Grass is a melee weapon in Terraria that can pierce enemies and autoswing. When using the melee weapon against enemies, you’ll inflict the Poisoned debuff, giving them a 25% chance of being poisoned for seven seconds.

This remarkable weapon throws a leaf-shaped projectile with green particle effects that deal damage equal to 25% of its base damage and can pass through a single enemy.

Its ability to automatically target nearby enemies within a radius of nine tiles is truly impressive. No need to worry about aiming precisely – this weapon’s got you covered! Additionally, it boasts +20 Armor Penetration, making sure that even well-armored enemies in Terraria will feel its sting.

Blade of Grass Recipe

MaterialsCrafting Station
• Jungle Spores (15 (desktop, mobile, console) / 12 (3DS, old-gen consoles)) 
• Stinger (12 (desktop, mobile, console) / 15 (3DS, old-gen consoles)) 
• Vine (3)
Iron Anvil / Lead Anvil

Stingers are abundant in the Underground Jungle, where killing Dragon Hornets (50%), Hornets (66%), Moss Hornets (16.67%), and Spiked Jungle Slimes will yield the material. Expect higher drop rates if you play on Expert Mode and Master Mode, where Hornets and Spiked Jungle Slimes always guarantee the reward.

While exploring the same location in Terraria, you may encounter glowing green Jungle Spores. These are harmless, and you can destroy them. The final ingredient – Vines – is a drop from Man Eaters (50% (Classic) / 100% (Expert & Master)).

Item Upgrade

You can upgrade this weapon to a Night’s Edge. Through normal gameplay, you’ll encounter evil biomes, Dungeons, and the Underground. Spending some time in each location allows you to obtain the following materials:

• Blood Butcherer (1) / Light’s Bane (1) 
• Muramasa (1) 
• Volcano (1)
Crimson Altar / Demon Altar

Tips and Tricks

The enemies that drop Stingers, like Hornets and Spiked Jungle Slimes, become rarer in their spawns. However, the Moss Hornet became more prevalent, even though it doesn’t drop Stingers (3DS, old-gen consoles).

Nevertheless, the sword remains an impressive weapon in Terraria, ranking as the second-largest sword you can wield in the pre-Hardmode phase, only surpassed by the Volcano.
