The Kelvin Catalyst is a craftable Hardmode boomerang that does rogue damage. It inflicts the Frostburn debuff and multiple boomerangs can be deployed at once, with the boomerang returning to the owner after a set distance, and breaking upon contact with a solid block. Upon contact with an enemy, the boomerangs spawn eight ice stars each, which do one sixth of the boomerang's base damage, sharply home-in onto enemies, and go through tiles. If no enemies are nearby, the ice stars will shatter. There can only be up to 32 ice stars at a time.
Performing a stealth strike with the Kelvin Catalyst will cause the next boomerang thrown to ram towards the nearest enemy instead of returning to the player, and will return to the player 1 second later.
Its best modifier is Flawless.

- The ice stars deal typeless damage and cannot deal critical hits.
- Most of this weapon's materials can be obtained from Cryogen. The only exceptions are the Ice Stars, which are bought from the Archmage NPC who spawns after Cryogen is defeated
- This weapon is extremely effective in early to mid-Hardmode, as it can tear through most bosses at that stage of the game with its high DPS.
- A catalyst is a substance which increases the rate of chemical reaction but is not consumed upon reacting, thus it can react repeatedly.
