Easy Money Music Box Glitch:
This only works in single player. All you need is a music box and 2 wooden platforms.
Place the 2 platforms 2 squares from the roof of your house. Try placing the music
box on the platform. The music box will explode into hundreds of boxes. Then just
sell the extra. easy money and free music boxes.
* All randomly generated worlds feature at least one island floating in the sky, but
they're difficult to access normally and you still need to find where exactly the
* One way to find the islands is to construct pillars that reach far into the sky
(100 to 200 blocks in height), then use vines and grapples to scale the pillar (or
simply make really tall ladders) and jump in various directions from the very top.
With luck you should catch the telltale signs of the floating islands in the form
of the vines that often extend below them.
* Or load up a gun with Meteor Shots and begin shooting at the sky at random
locations; if the shot rebounds back toward you, you've likely hit a floating
island. Crafting Grav Potions are also another way to help you navigate maps
in special ways.
* If you don't mind gaming the system, you can also create a new and separate game
in Hardcore mode, purposely kill yourself to become a ghost, then fly around the
entire map to eventually discover the islands. Then reload your usual save file
and make your way to the islands with the knowledge you've just earned.
Infinite Items and Money:
Open 2 copies of Terraria. Log into a world with the character that has the items
you want to duplicate. If they are in a chest, get them from the chest and save
and exit, then log back into the same world. Login as the SAME character on a
different world. On the first character, put whatever you want into a chest, then
save and exit. On the second character, save and exit from that world, then log
into the other world that has the item in the chest and grab the item. Now you
should have the item in your inventory, and a copy would be in the chest. you
can grab that copy and now you have 2. This is useful if you want multiple grappling
hooks for friends or even gold/armor. You can repeat but remember to save and exit,
THEN try it again as it wot work in one long run.
Infinite Life Crystals and Chest Items:
Here's a way that you can cheat the system and get as many life crystals and as
much stuff out of a chest that you want by using the multiplayer feature.
1.Go to Terraria.org and download their dedicated server program. (Just scroll
all the way down at home page.)
2.Use it to start one of your worlds or make a new one. (To join your own server,
just type "localhost" into the IP address [without quotes]).
3.Search for a life crystal or chest that has something you want to keep getting
and save the game through the server command window BEFORE you pick up the item.
4.Pick up the life crystal/chest item and close the server window. You should lose
5.Re-open your server and join it. You should still have the life crystal/chest
item in your inventory.
If you rush back to the spot where you found the stuff, it should still be there.
All you need to do is take the item and close the server without saving, and you
can just pick up whatever you want over and over again.
Remember to SAVE your progress and make a backup of your save. Alter game files
at your own risk. Deposit the item you want in a chest. Save the game and exit.
Go back in the game and withdraw the item you want to clone and put it in your
inventory. Wait 5 min (Very Important). Close the game via Alt-F4. Go back into
and there is your cloned item. You should now have the same item in the chest
and in your inventory.
Red's Alternate Armor:
Equip the gold helmet, a frost chest plate, and frost leggings, with black and blue
flame dye on all armor pieces. You will receive special vanity effects, which is a
reference to Red's armor as depicted in the 1.2 Random Happenings trailer.
Each randomly generated world comes with at least one floating island. These contain
a chest with unique loot and are interlaced with gold and silver ore. Finding a
floating island can be tough as the altitude depends on the size of the world you
created, but building a "sky bridge" can help. On small worlds, building the bridge
at about 200 blocks above sea level will put you within sight of an island. Keep an
eye out for vines floating in the middle of the sky, because that's the bottom of
Harvesting Fallen Stars:
Every night time stars fall from the sky. Collecting ten of these lets you increase
your maximum mana. On normal terrain this can take a long time and can be a risky
proposition in pitch-darkness. By creating a Sky Bridge (by making a ladder about a
hundred or so blocks in the air and then laying down stone or dirt in a straight
line) you can create a long stretch of easily-traversable land for the stars to
land on. With a speed-increasing item such as Hermes Boots or Necro Armor equipped
you can travel the length of your bridge collecting stars relatively uninhibited.
Zombies will still spawn on the bridge and you might get the occasional harpy or
demon eye, but you won't have to contend with rough terrain, chasms, water or
anything that spawns from the corruption.
You can enable Hard Mode by killing the Wall of Flesh. To summon him, throw a guide
voodoo doll into some lava. Once you slay the Wall of Flesh, Hard Mode is permanently
enabled and cannot be disabled on the file unless you modify it with a third-party
program. In Hard Mode, a new biome (The Hallow) is created, and you will encounter
additional new bosses, items, and monsters.
How to Summon the Queen Bee:
* Queen Bees most commonly can be summoned inside a Bee Hive. These dangerous hives
are located in Underground Jungles. Each world can contain several of these hives,
so itís possible to fight the Queen Bee multiple times by invaded the hive.
* To make the Queen Bee appear, youíll need to destroy Larvae. The Larvae appear as
large (about player-sized) bees stuck inside semi-transparent crystallized shells.
Destroy them to summon a Queen.
* Some hives can contain two Larvae. Donít break both at once, or youíll have to deal
with two Queen Bees at the same time.
Infinite Money with Lizarhd Doors:
After you have a Picksaw drop from the Golem go to a world where the temple has not
been unlocked with a key and Plantera has already been defeated. Make your way to the
temple and mine the blocks under the door and it will break the door but the locked
door will remain and 3 to 12 doors will drop at a time. Just replace the block and
re-mine, wash-rinse-repeat. This has been tested on 18.104.22.168 on both P.C. and Console.
