The Xylophone is a craftable Hardmode Big instrument. It releases blue rectangular projectiles that explodes on contact or after a second. While held, the Percussion Timer will appear below the player; the weapon's effects vary based on whether or not the timer is over a marker when attacking, as well as how long the rhythm has been held. When used, it empowers nearby players and the user with the Flight Time I empowerment.
Correctly attacking while the timer is over a marker will increase the weapon's damage by 4%, which stacks with successive correctly timed attacks up to 120% increased damage.
- Once the bonus damage has reached 40%, the projectile's explosion range will increase and the xylophone will empower nearby players and the user with the Flight Time II empowerment.
- Once the bonus damage has reached 80%, the projectile's explosion range will further increase and the xylophone will empower nearby players and the user with the Flight Time III empowerment.
Its best modifier is Fabled.
