The Dread Blaster is a craftable Hardmode magic gun. It fires a concentrated flame which can hit the same enemy three times, essentially tripling damage output. Dealing damage will expel up to 6 dread energy particles that surround the player for 5 seconds or until they find a nearby enemy to home in on and damage. Both the concentrated flame and dread energy inflict the Cursed Inferno debuff upon impact.

Its best Modifier is Mythical.

Notes[]

  • The initial projectile will deal 3 hits of damage to the enemy, with each hit summoning up to two dread energies. Therefore, rapid use of the blaster could generate a very large army of dread spirits.
    • However, each dread spirit only exists for 5 seconds, so it could be difficult to "stockpile" a large army before they disappear.
