Aestheticus Crystal
Vaporified Crystal

Aestheticus being used on a Target Dummy and a Super Dummy. Notice how the 4 crystals temporarily deal no damage before homing in, and crystals being able to home onto the same target.

The Aestheticus is a Pre-Hardmode classless weapon which automatically swings and deal damage in a similar manner to broadswords while firing homing crystals that get their damage multiplied by damage bonuses from all classes. When the crystal hits an enemy or after a few seconds, it splits into 4 crystals that damage and home into enemies after a short time, exploding on successful enemy hits. Both crystals inflict the Vaporfied debuff which deals 15 damage per second and reduces enemy movement speed by 10%.

The Aestheticus cannot be reforged, and therefore cannot have modifiers.




  • If the debuff is inflicted onto a player, they instead lose 4 health per second and their natural life regen is disabled.
  • This weapon does not have any critical strike chance and cannot gain any from Accessories, Modifiers, Buffs and Armor bonuses.


  • This weapon does a large amount of damage to segmented enemies due to the fact that all of the segments can have the effect at the same time.


  • This weapon is themed around vaporwave imagery, including pastel blues and pinks and a pattern reminiscent of the classic Windows logo. The name of Vaporfied debuff makes reference to this.
    • The name of the weapon is a reference to the common usage of the term "AESTHETIC" when referring to vaporwave imagery.
    • It is also based off an enemy named 'Aestheticus' from the game 'Cat-Girl Without Salad: Amuse-Bouche'.
  • Players that are nearby a target inflicted by the Vaporfied debuff will flash a variety of colors.
