The Caustic Staff is a craftable Hardmode summon weapon. When used, it summons a black Caustic Dragon minion that flies behind the player and attacks nearby enemies by firing gravity-affected thorns that pierce through tiles and up to two enemies. While the player is holding a summon weapon or tool, the thorns will cycle through and inflict one of the following debuffs for 1-3 seconds in this repeating order:
Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, minions cannot deal critical hits. The only lasting advantage a Mythical Caustic Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.

- The debuffs inflicted from the thorns must time out and cannot be refreshed before the next debuff can be applied.
