The Sonic Amplifier is a Hardmode Bard weapon that has a chance to be dropped by the Moon Lord. It releases three yellow energy orb projectiles in rapid succession that are unaffected by gravity. Right-clicking will instead release a large green hyper-sonic wave that pierces infinitely, but only travels a short distance before dissipating. Both forms of attack grant a life shield to the player when striking an enemy, providing them with additional temporary maximum life that stacks with successive strikes up to a limit and decays over time. When used, it empowers nearby players and the user with the Empowerment Prolongation III empowerment.

Its best modifier is Fabled.


  • Although the hyper-sonic wave's projectile is capable of passing through tiles, it cannot deal damage to enemies when it does.


  • The design of the weapon is a reference to a weapon of the same name used by the character Lúcio in the online shooter game Overwatch.
    • Its attacks also mimic Lúcio's, his weapon also fires a burst of three projectiles, and its alternate fire releases a wide short-range burst that hits all enemies caught in it. In addition, his ultimate ability can grant additional shields to players similar to how the Sonic Amplifier does so on hit.
