I have tried to kill the Destroyer a couple of times. The first time I built the arena it killed me and I went back to my spawn point. It followed me and killed all of my MPCs. I don't use guns very much because I have terrible aim. I have a adamintite sword and mythril armor. What different kinds of weapons should I use since these are not working for me?

  • @PrivatePansy i disagree that question is for a speedrun and specifically asks for quick to acquire weapons. – Aequitas Dec 19 '15 at 0:45
  • @Aequitas, what tells us OP is playing on console, here? – user106385 Dec 19 '15 at 2:43
  • @Timelord64 comments below my answer – Aequitas Dec 19 '15 at 2:45
  • Also, vote to remain closed. The other question has different context, but asks for the same thing. Good answers should not just meet the specfic requirements of the OP, and as such, we should be having all answers that address this question in the one place. This still works as a guidepost. I would recommend any new answer simply be posted on the duplicate. – user106385 Dec 19 '15 at 2:45
  • @Aequitas, the only reference I can see to non-computer is Sharanga. – user106385 Dec 19 '15 at 2:49

I highly suggest the Nimbus Rod it's insanely effective against The Destroyer (and other multi-segmented enemies).

You can acquire them by killing Angry Nimbus's which appear on the surface when it's raining.

After acquiring only one rod, you can summon two clouds and then drop the item for your friends so that they can summon two more clouds each.

Use any other preferred weapons to augment the damage from the clouds, but the clouds will be your main source of DPS. You can even get the crimson rod for another cloud (although it does less damage).

  • Would a Minishark be effective against the Destroyer as well? I have heard that it is a good weapon to use. I also have a star cannon. Would that be effective? – Lizzy Dec 19 '15 at 1:15
  • not particularly, but it's as decent a weapon to use as any with the clouds. – Aequitas Dec 19 '15 at 1:35
  • penetrating weapons like spears and flails are strong, so are many arrows – Aequitas Dec 19 '15 at 1:36
  • What kind of bow should I use? I already have a Sharanga. – Lizzy Dec 19 '15 at 2:39
  • sharanga is fine, it's quite a decent bow, also you should have mentioned that you were playing terraria-console not terraria as there are many differences. Just make sure to use a penetrating arrow such as holy arrow , or jester's arrows (unholy arrows too but they don't penetrate as much) – Aequitas Dec 19 '15 at 2:44
