The Black Bow is a Hardmode bow that is sold by the Tracker after completing the "Tracker's End" contract. It fires a multi-shot volley of 7 arrows, 3 that depend on ammo used and 4 shadow arrows. Shadow arrows slowly home in on enemies and, like other Black Weapons, grant the Darkness Within buff, granting stacking damage for each hit before peaking at 50 stacks. After reaching 50 stacks, it will inflict the Wither debuff on hit enemies.

Its best modifier is Unreal.


  • It is recommended that you use any Black Weapons along with The Black Cane as the Darkness Within buff that it creates will stack, making it easier to get to 50 stacks.
