(I decided to post one more small suggestion this weekend since it's my last day of summer, so I hope you like it!)

So, we all know Unholy Arrows, cool ammo at the beginning of the game from the corruption. But don't you wish there was a crimson equivalent? I introduce to you: Bloody Arrows!

Bloody Arrows could be crafted with 5 Wooden Arrows and 1 Blood Mandible (

) at an anvil. When shot, they do 10 damage and will occasionally drop small blood droplets that fall and damage enemies. In crimson worlds, they drop in place of Unholy Arrows from Eye of Cthulhu and are sold by the Arms Dealer for 50 copper. However, you may have noticed the Blood Mandible as well:

Blood Mandibles have a 25% drop chance from Blood Crawlers in groups of 1-3. These can either be used to craft Bloody Arrows or Thorns Potions, replacing the Worm Tooth ingredient to make it available in both worlds.

Thanks for reading my suggestion! Please let me know what you think in the comments!

I think the arrows damage should be around 8. Also, the arrows should also be available by the arms dealer as well
I made the arrow's damage so that it's on par with Unholy arrows, but I see what you mean. Also, I already mentioned them being sold by the Arms Dealer.

Looks good! Now we just need to remedy some other injustices, like Crimson having vines but not Corruption. :)

Not sure about the blood effect though. Ichor is a bit overdone in the Crimson, so maybe not a good idea to replace the blood with ichor. Maybe the Bloody Arrows could be Poisoned Arrows and/or inflict poisoned instead?
(For comparison, to save others checking the Wiki: Unholy Arrows pierce an indefinite amount of enemies.)

Thanks for the feedback! I think I’m going to keep the blood droplets, as I think that’s a cool little feature for early game. Thanks for the idea though!

Also, I just realized this, but this is my 50’th suggestion! Thank you all so much for the support!

Neat-o! What about if the blood droplets deal around ~5 damage in total, and also the enemies struck get a blood dripping animation?

One of my favorite pastimes is shooting NPCs in the face with the slime gun. Kind of random, but I like the dripping effect, so blood dripping would be cool.

Hemotic would be a better term than bloody, if only because, even through it doesn't actually exist, it conveys a similar meaning of being related to blood without coming off as unoriginal.
