Consuming an Archery Potion will grant the Archery buff, which according to the in-game text, will "increase arrow damage and speed".

Does this buff work for guns and bullets, too? Does it apply to ranged weapons in general or only arrows fired from bows and repeaters?

No. Potions, buffs, and items that improve "arrow" damage only affect weapons that shoot arrows. If you use guns, you'll want to be looking for things that affect "ranged" damage.

Don't worry, though! Despite the fact that there are no potions available that buff gun damage, guns are still an incredibly powerful weapon choice, especially with complementary gear to back them up, like the Necro Armor.


No, it does what the potion tooltip (or well whatever) says, but wrath potion works for everything, and boosts the damage guns do too! (+10% damage)
