Can I transfer my Terraria character from one PC to another?

Currently my map server is run on my laptop at home, and my brother and I play via LAN each on his desktop PC.

However, I’d like to transfer my character from the Desktop PC to my laptop in order to play on the go.

Can I do this? Where is the character information saved?


If you are playing the Steam version with an Internet connection, you can just let Steam do all that work for you by enabling cloud saving for your character.

Terraria "move to cloud" button

Otherwise, your characters are stored in:

  • Windows: %userprofile%\Documents\My Games\Terraria\Players
  • Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Terraria/Players
  • Linux: ~/.local/share/Terraria/Players

However, if you’re using Steam cloud saves, the files will be in a different location.

<Steam directory>/userdata/<Steam3 ID>/105600/remote/players

To copy a character, you will need both the .plr file and the folder that are named like your character. Technically, only the file is necessary, but the folder contains your minimap data.
