The Haunting Bass Drum is a Hardmode Bard weapon that is dropped by the Pumpking during the Pumpkin Moon event. It damages all enemies within a 28 block radius, just like the Bongos, and can be considered an upgraded version of it. When dealing a critical hit, a spread of shadow-fire energy is released from the enemy, dealing extra damage to additional nearby enemies, and inflicting either the Melting or Shadowflame debuff. When used, it empowers nearby players and the user with the Aquatic Ability II, Movement Speed III, and Flight Time I empowerments.

Its best modifier is Fabled.


  • The Haunting Bass Drum cannot damage enemies through blocks.
