Bucket in Terraria: Everything You Should Know


Do you want to get Lava for your monster traps? Or perhaps duplicate Honey since it’s limited? Maybe all you need is an artificial swimming pool? You’ll need a Bucket. And in this guide, we’ll teach you everything about the item!

Terraria, most of the time, needs many players to show off their creativity. It could be a trap or an automated machine – anything made from imagination! However, some creations need liquids, meaning you should have a Bucket. Read more about the item, how to make one, and what you can do further with it!

Bucket – Overview

A Bucket is an item in Terraria for collecting and dropping off liquids such as Water, Honey, and Lava. The action is performed by pressing the left-click button, where one tile can be covered. If there’s less than a full tile of any liquid, it’ll always drop a full tile.

Albeit trivial at first, a Bucket helps negate fall damage with proper practice. It’s also great for duplicating limited liquids such as Honey and Lava, so bringing extras is best. 

Water Walking Boots help traverse poured Water. However, you’ll need Lava Charm or Obsidian Skin Potion for better safety while gathering Lava. 

A Bucket can also be a helmet, providing +1 Defense. It’s useless but can be stacked with a Badger’s Hat, Rabbit Perch, or another Bucket.

How to Make a Bucket?

Making a Bucket is easy. First, make an Iron Anvil or Lead Anvil. Afterward, stand near either crafting station with Any Iron Bar (2) on your inventory.
