Hydraulic Volt Crasher

The Hydraulic Volt Crasher is a craftable Hardmode hammer. When an enemy is struck, a stream of electricity is released, striking all enemies within a short range. Enemies that are struck by electricity take continuous damage from the shock, equivalent to 80% of the weapon's damage and reduces by 25% every hit until it hits the target 5 times. If the target is repeatedly hit, an explosion will occur, dealing more damage and inflicting the Electrified debuff. It consumes charge on use.

The weapon consumes 0.002 units of charge for each frame the weapon is held (totaling 0.032 units of charge per use) and has a maximum charge of 85.

Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase its average damage output by the same amount. Mechanical tools can only have universal prefixes, because they can't have their speed modified.



The Hydraulic Volt Crasher 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:
