Grave Buster casting animation.

The Grave Buster is a Pre-Hardmode magic weapon that is dropped by Patch Werk and sold by the Confused Zombie. When used, it will momentarily summon skeletal hands in a line in front of the player for about 16 tiles, rapidly damaging enemies. This line will try to run along the surface of tiles but will pass through them if it encounters too steep a wall before ending.

Its best modifier is Mythical.


  • The Grave Buster excels at crowd control, and can be very helpful during events or against grouped enemies.
  • As this weapon can be obtained very early on in the game, it can be used to beat early events easily. This allows the player to get access to powerful weapons and equipment early on.


  • Nerfed damage from 14 to 12, mana cost from 5 to 6, and attack rate.
  • Is now also sold by the Confused Zombie.
  • Introduced.
