The compass is a must-have and in this Terraria guide, we will talk about how exactly you can get a Compass in the game.

How to Get a Compass

The Compass is a drop item in Terraria that you get by farming the below-mentioned enemies.

  • Piranhas spawned from Statues.
  • Salamanders
  • Shellys
  • Crawdads
  • Mother Slimes
  • Snow Flinxes
  • Undead Vikings
  • Armored Vikings

We recommend players go for the first option. Spawn the Mechanic NPC and get hold of the wire item which you can use to connect mechanisms. You need it to activate the Piranha Statues.

Spawn Piranhas from the Piranha statue using the wire and kill them. There is a 2% chance that the Piranhas might drop the compass. You can use the below video guide if you want to effectively farm Piranhas to get the Compass item.
