The Witchblade is a non-consumable Hardmode throwing weapon that can autofire. It is dropped by Pumpkings during the Pumpkin Moon event. It throws blades that arc downwards after a considerable distance and can pierce up to 2 enemies. Right-clicking with the weapon allows the user to perform a horizontal dash forward, charging through enemies; the dash does not inflict any damage, but gives the user a few frames of invincibility. 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.
- Without any input and while on the ground, the dash from the right click will move the player around 35 tiles in length.
