The Bassoon is a craftable Hardmode Bard weapon. It releases black bomb projectiles that stick to enemies and tiles and disappear after 5 seconds. Right-clicking with the weapon will cause all currently deployed bombs to explode, dealing area of effect damage and briefly inflicting the Wither debuff to multiple enemies. When used, it empowers nearby players and the user with the Resource Grab Range III and Resource Consumption Chance III empowerments.

Its best modifier is Fabled.
