Best Starter Weapon for Terraria Journey’s End

The best starter weapon in Journey’s End as of now is the Blood Rain Bow. This could be the best weapon that you can craft first when it comes to Journey’s End. Even getting your hands on this weapon is quite easy as all you need to is fish and kill enemies. The best choice for this would be Wandering Eye Fish that we see in the Blood Moon event. This weapon acts similarly as the Daedalus Storm bow and is pre-hardmode early game weapon with a wide range when it comes to attacking and killing enemies.

  • 14 Ranges Damage
  • 4% Critical Strike Chance
  • Very Fast Speed
  • Very Weak Knockback
  • Rains Blood from the Sky
  • ‘Reign in Blood’

As you might have guessed the name, it is a weapon that turns the arrows you shoot into bloody indicators that fall vertically on enemies. Yes granted the 14 range damage seems like a little number, but the way that this weapon function makes it a weapon to have against the pre-hardmode early-game enemies. The falling bloody arrows make it a natural weapon of choice to hunt down enemies like Cthulu and Eater of Worlds.


Once you take care of these enemies, more and more raw materials will add up to your inventory for crafting more weapons.
