The Star Eater is a craftable, non-consumable Hardmode throwing weapon that can autofire. It rapidly throws "sleeping giants" that fly extremely fast and are not affected by gravity. They stick into enemies for 10 seconds, and up to 10 sleeping giants can be stuck in an enemy at a time. Each sleeping giant stuck in an enemy will increase the amount of damage that successive giants deal to that enemy. It also has a higher than usual critical strike chance.

Like most non-consumable throwing weapons, using this weapon builds up an exhaustion meter that appears below the player. Not using the weapon will make the meter slowly go back down. However, if it becomes completely filled, the user will be inflicted with the Exhaustion debuff, causing all non-consumable throwing weapons to deal massively decreased damage for some time. The meter resets after the debuff ends.
