Weapons are essential items used for combat against enemies, bosses and critters. Some weapons can be crafted at a Work Bench or a Pre-Hardmode Anvils, while others can only be found in Chests, as enemy drops, or purchased from NPCs. Starlight River has a wide variety of weapons and weapon classes, each suited to particular play styles or specific tasks.

Melee Weapons

Main article: Melee weapons


Swords are melee weapons which can be divided into 2 basic categories: shortswords and broadswords. Shortswords have very limited range, and they attack with a horizontal stabbing motion instead of an arc. Broadswords are swung overhead, which makes it easier to defeat flying and jumping enemies than shortswords.

Pre-Hardmode Swords


Spears are melee weapons that have a longer range than most swords, but attack with a stabbing motion. Spears also can hit targets more than once, making them especially useful for dealing with large enemies.

Pre-Hardmode Spears


Yoyos are flail-like melee weapons that follow the player's cursor when thrown.

Pre-Hardmode Yoyos


Boomerangs are melee weapons that return to the player after being thrown. Together with yoyos, they provide the earliest distance attacks that benefit from melee bonuses.

Pre-Hardmode Boomerangs


These are melee weapons that possess unique means of attack, not fitting within the traditional subclasses of weapons.
