The Dragon Fang is a non-consumable Hardmode throwing weapon that can autofire. It is dropped by Betsy during the Old One's Army event. It throws fangs that arc downwards after a considerable distance. Upon hitting an enemy, the fang bursts into a cone-shaped spread of five spinning dragon fire projectiles that continue to travel in the original direction. The fire projectiles damage and pierce through an infinite number of enemies and inflict them with the Melting debuff before dissipating after traveling about 30 tiles.
Like most non-consumable throwing weapons, using this weapon builds up an exhaustion meter that appears below the player. Not using the weapon will make the meter slowly go back down. However, if it becomes completely filled, the user will be inflicted with the Exhaustion debuff, causing all non-consumable throwing weapons to deal massively decreased damage for some time. The meter resets after the debuff ends.
