Gas Containers are craftable, consumable Hardmode throwing weapons that can autofire. They burst into multiple gas clouds when they impact a tile or enemy, which linger for about 7.5 seconds and inflict the Poisoned debuff. The initial projectile deals damage upon hitting an enemy.
When other vial type throwing weapons impact an object while gas clouds are nearby, a chain reaction will occur depending on the type of vial used, causing the gas to dissapear in the process.
