The Arcbolter is a Pre-Hardmode summon weapon that fires an inaccurate gravity-affected electrical bolt in an arc. Summoned minions will target enemies in their line of sight that have been hit by the weapon (the effect is similar to pressing Open / Activate with a minion summoning item). Additionally, hit enemies have a chance to generate links of static electricity between each other when struck by minions. Unlike the other projectile summon weapons available, the Arcbolter does not use any mana, making it an ideal weapon for early-game summoners who do not wish to use mana potions.

Its best modifier is Godly. It cannot get modifiers that affect size. While it deals summon damage and therefore cannot deal critical hits, both the Ruthless and Godly modifiers increase its damage by 17%, with the Godly modifier offering an additional 15% increase in knockback.

The Arcbolter has a 16.67% chance to appear as a bonus drop from Moonlight Preservers during the Jelly Deluge event.


  • The method of obtaining the Arcbolter is the exact same as receiving ores or torches from slimes through bonus drops.
