In Terraria, Jester Arrows can pierce/penetrate enemies. Which other arrows and bullets can do this? Are there any midgame ones for hardmode crowd control, or can you only do this early-on?

    Why you're getting downvotes doesn't belong in the question. Also, asking why you're getting downvotes usually means you just get more.

In addition to the already mentioned Jester Arrow, your options for piercing arrows are Unholy Arrow(early/midgame), Chlorophyte Arrow(hardmode) and Luminite Arrow(hardmode).

For bullets you could use Meteor Shot(midgame) or Luminite Bullet(hardmode). There is also Candy Corn(hardmode) that can be used with the Candy Corn Rifle.

    There are more ammunition-based weapons with piercing/penetrating property: Helwing Bow, Shadowflame Bow, Pulse Bow, Bee Knees, Stake Launcher (stakes), Flame Thrower (gel), Dart Pistol (darts), Flare Gun (flares).

  • Note that the amount of enemies each ammo/weapon can pierce may vary from as low as Meteor Shot which can only pierce 1 target. For early hardmode you consider a Blowgun with Crystal Darts. Which gives some auto targeting and up to 7 hits per shot. Damage is decent even later into hardmode and you can replace your Blowgun with Dart Pistol/Rifle.
