Terraria – How to Survive Your First Night in New Version

After building the starter house, you might want to start preparing for zombros eyes and other deadly creature, like a firefly . This NON-JOKE guide will help those new players.

Don’t mine before anything

Sure, you may have seen YouTubers do it, but they’ve most likely been playing since early Terraria. So DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES start mining before you get weapons and armor. It won’t work and you’ll just end up with a death on the counter. If you keep track of that.


More trees, gardening and more crafting

Alright, you might want to get more wood because what you want to do is get; a wood sword, better than that crappy copper short sword, a bow, a hammer  and a FULL wood armor set. Then get 30 stone, 3 torches and however much wood it is for a furnace, Use the 20 stone and the other items with the work bench to make a furnace. Then use the leftover stone to make arrows (may need wood as well).

But what about the gardening? Use the acorns on grassy ground to make a sapling. Use it in an area you don’t want a tree in, as it will grow into a tree.


oh no it’s night time

At 8:00 in Terraria time, it will turn to nightfall. Instead of running out and mainly going Rambo, only go out occasionally. And use the bow for long range before you start stabbing zombies with a sword.

How to deal with zombies: use what I just said.

How to deal with Demon Eyes: Use bow and arrows instead of jumping off the roof.

Just wait it out until it turns to day. As I’m writing this, there are… 6 zombies near me. But, I haven’t died as I stayed in my house 🙂



Nice, you survived your first night! Now go into the nearest mine and get digging. Get better armor, build more houses, get more NPC’s, get better weapons, stab more things and die a whole bunch!
