The Pestilent Defiler is a Hardmode gun that is dropped by The Plaguebringer Goliath. It fills the role of a sniper rifle, slowly firing extremely powerful shots at high velocity. If Musket Balls are used as ammo, bullets are converted into plague rounds that inflict Plague, Poisoned and Venom debuffs, causing up to 360 additional damage over several seconds. This plague round also splits into three smaller projectiles on impact that fly in random directions, potentially hitting other nearby enemies. Its extreme knockback helps repel enemies, making its slow fire rate more manageable.

Its best modifier is Unreal.
