The Frequency Manipulator is a craftable Hardmode javelin. When used, the player winds up a javelin around them before throwing, spawning four homing energy outwards from each enemy that is hit and pierces up to three times. Colliding with tiles will break the javelin but also release the homing energy before it is killed.

Performing a stealth strike with the Frequency Manipulator causes the resulting javelin to deal 90% damage and massively increase its area of effect.

The weapon consumes 0.004 units of charge per use and has a maximum charge of 85.

Its best modifier is Flawless.



The Frequency Manipulator cannot be crafted until the Encrypted Schematic from the Space Bio-center Lab is decrypted. If the requirement has not been met, two lines of tooltip are added at the bottom of the item:
