The Shockbuster is a craftable Hardmode ranged weapon. It uses Steam Batteries as ammunition, firing a static bolt that travels in a zig-zag motion. The bolts deal minimum damage, but cling onto the hit enemy for 3 seconds. Right-clicking fires a shock grenade that is affected by gravity. If there is at least one static bolt attached to enemies in radius of the grenade, it will cause an explosion dealing increased damage; the explosion can trigger nearby static bolts as well, potentially resulting in a chain reaction.

Its best modifier is Unreal.

  • The chain reaction will hit an enemy multiple times, increasing with the number of static bolts attached to them.
  • If the Show Donator Item Color configuration option is disabled, the Shockbuster will have a rarity of Rarity Level: 5 instead of the standard Rarity level: Donator.
