Nitrogen Vials are craftable, consumable Hardmode throwing weapons. They burst into frost clouds when they impact a tile or enemy, dealing area of effect damage and inflicting the Freezing debuff, severely slowing enemy movement (bosses cannot receive this effect). Additionally, if there are any gas clouds nearby the weapon's impact point, they will turn into ice explosions that inflict the same debuff.
