The meteorite will land somewhere on the surface, replacing dozens of blocks deep with Meteorite in a crater pattern. Touching the meteorite blocks causes the player damage and knocks them back, unless they have the Obsidian Skull accessory equipped, or are using an Obsidian Skin Potion. A Cobalt Shield will prevent the knockback. Meteorite ore does not cause damage once mined from the Meteorite blocks, and can safely be collected thereafter.
Note that the meteorite will impact on the highest-altitude blocks it finds in a given area. If you have built Sky Bridge, even one composed of Wood Platforms, the Meteorite has a good chance of landing on that bridge. Having a low density of blocks to replace means you will not obtain the intended yield of Meteorite from the event.
It may be advisable to destroy any paths in the sky before smashing a Shadow Orb in order to get the full yield of Meteorite, as it is a valuable resource and the event can be rare. Alternatively, the Sky Bridge can be constructed thick enough to fully exploit the meteorite landing. This would require a much greater investment of time and resources, but also serves to protect the surface below from the damage of an impact.
Meteor Heads will continuously spawn and attack as the player is in the vicinity of a Meteorite crash site that hasn't been mined away yet. Meteor Heads fly, follow the player as they move, and can pass through all blocks, so it can be quite difficult for players without good defenses and weapons to attempt to mine Meteorite.
Once most of the Meteorite has been mined away (less than 50 Meteorite blocks remain unmined; about 10%), the area will cease to be considered a Meteorite biome. The music will change back to normal and Meteor Heads will stop spawning, although the remaining Meteor Heads will still attack. Afterwards, the remainder of the Meteorite can be safely mined or ignored.
- 一個鎬可以被用來knock back Meteor Heads if the player strategically repositions themselves as they spawn.
- Dynamite is useful for mining Meteorites, as 2 or 3 sticks can rid the area of enough ore to stop Meteor Heads from spawning relatively quickly. Be sure not to throw Dynamite while uncollected ore is still present in the area, as Dynamite can sometimes destroy uncollected ore.
- With two players, one player with the Vilethorn can protect the mining player rather easily if they stick together. (The Vilethorn will kill a Meteor Head in two direct hits, and it goes through walls as do the Meteor Heads.
- Meteorite in The Corruption will not stop corruption enemies from spawning. One strategy to avoid the Eaters of Souls while mining is by tunneling under the Meteorite. This will not protect you from Devourers, however.
- The same goes for Floating Islands. Even if a meteorite lands on one, Harpies will not stop spawning.
