The Javelin firing animation. Note the missile automatically aiming towards the Zombie.

The Javelin is a craftable post-Moon Lord Launcher. Like most launchers, it uses basic Rockets as ammo, shooting missiles that home towards nearby enemies and create large, deathly explosions immediately upon enemy or tile contact. Additionally, it has a 15% chance to not consume rocket ammunition.

Its best modifier is Unreal.
