The Gauss Dagger is a craftable Pre-Hardmode broadsword. When used, the player swings a short-ranged dagger that spawns an energy flux on top of enemies when they are struck two times. The flux repeatedly damages enemies that come into contact with it for 3 seconds.
The weapon consumes 0.05 units of charge per use and has a maximum charge of 50.
Its best modifier is Legendary.
