The Christmas Cheer is a Hardmode radiant weapon that is dropped by Everscream during the Frost Moon event. When swung, it will produce a double-edged scythe that spins in a full circle around the player, damaging enemies and giving off green particle effects. In addition, it will fling icicles in the direction of the nearest enemy within 50 blocks of the player, which deal no damage but inflict the Freezing debuff, significantly decreasing their movement speed; however, bosses cannot receive this effect.
Upon directly striking an enemy, the user will gain 2 stacks of Soul Essence. The icicles will not grant any soul essence.
- The icicle will pass through any enemy that already has been afflicted with Freezing; while this prevents keeping a single enemy slowed for an extended duration, it can allow the icicle to slow an enemy behind an already slowed one.
