Is it possible to outrun a Winged Queen Slime?

I know that the maximum horizontal speed is around 240mph

But I don't have the gear to replicate it, nor do I want to spend a Gelatin Crystal trying, and at my current 41mph speed, it seems like it keeps accelerating when it takes off from landing.

In short: Not without Asphalt.

Winged Queen Slime caught up to me when my speed was 68mph, but I outran her when it was 74mph, so I suspect her speed is 70mph.

I equipped all the gear you could have pre-mech:

  • Cobalt Helmet
  • Gi (from the Traveling Merchant)
  • Cobalt Leggings
  • Cake (from the Party Girl, for the Sugar Rush buff)
  • Quick Frostspark Boots
  • Quick Lightning Boots
  • Quick Magiluminescence
  • Quick Aglet
  • Quick Fairy Wings
  • Quick Anklet of the Wind
  • Quick Moon Charm
  • Swiftness Potion (for the Swiftness buff)
  • Sunflower (for the Happy! buff)
  • Apple Pie (for the Exquisitely Stuffed buff)

and after all of that? My speed only reached 57mph. If I step on asphalt though, my speed jumps up to over 150mph!

Minecarts won't allow you to outrun her because they only have a maximum speed of 66mph pre-mech. But! Everytime she reaches you while you're in a minecart, she does her slam attack so while she's busy slamming the ground you can run away.

  • It seems like you're missing Sugar Rush? terraria.wiki.gg/wiki/Sugar_Rush Also, it's Swiftness Potion, not Speed, apparently. terraria.wiki.gg/wiki/Swiftness_Potion EDIT: Nevermind, you called it Cake. I misread.

  • @Malady Yeah I sometimes mix up the the thing giving the buff with the buff itself 😅

  • @Malady Here's a link to a Queen Slime fight I did with this set-up. As you can see in 1:22 she does catch-up to me but she doesn't seem to be able to hit me or slam me for some reason

  • Cool! I saw her twitch at youtu.be/rHacAZz7hVk?t=88... What Difficulty was that fight in? I wonder if she's faster at higher ones. If you add anecdotes of "failure to slam" in your answer, I think I'll Check this, because it's very comprehensive on how to fight her.

  • @Malady that was in Master difficulty, ×1 spawn rate, normal world (not ftw or other special seeds)

Back on the Xbox 360 I used to sometimes accidentally run so fast with an asphalt road and lightning boots I sometimes would despawn Duke Fishron by having them go off screen.

You make asphalt blocks at a Blend-O-Matic which you can buy from the Steampunker.

I don't remember if Winged Queen Slime is faster than Duke Fishron or not but asphalt helps a lot.
