Venturing into the deep ravines of Terraria without a proper plan is a thrill in its regard. The adventuring value is great; you never know when an enemy will stab you from the dark. A highly sought aspect of underground adventuring is the underground mining channels that move you to unknown locations.

With that said minecarts are quite simple to use and create. Therefore, you should be able to understand how these objects work to make the most out of them.

Entering a minecart only requires you to press the Open / Activate hotkey. However, exiting it is possible in multiple ways. With that said, a player can exit the minecart by using the methods listed below:

  • Use the Open / Activate Key
  • Using Grappling Hook
  • Canceling the Buff
  • Jumping off the Tracks

Similar to hooks, it is possible to use other weapons within the minecart. Therefore, you can also attempt to disconnect the rails with your pickaxe.

Ultimately, getting out of rails seems necessary for fighting incoming underground mobs. However, this method can also be used to kite bosses like Wall of Flesh and the Twins. The mechanic isn’t that complex. Therefore, you should be able to master it in one go.
