The Photon Ripper is a post-Moon Lord chainsaw that drops from the Exo Mechs after XF-09 Ares has been defeated last. It rapidly fires out rainbow teeth which circle back after passing through the cursor or past a set distance. The maximum set distance along with tooth damage increases as the weapon is used up to 3 seconds where it is fully charged. The tooth deals 6% damage initially and scales up to 16.67%, while the chainsaw itself deals full contact damage. Additionally, teeth projectiles will instantly remove trees.

Its best modifier is Godly. It cannot get modifiers that affect size.


  • The chainsaw projectile itself is named "Extraordinarily Cost-Inefficient Chainsaw".
  • The function used by the Prism Tooth projectile for removing trees is named "AbsolutelyFuckingAnnihilateTrees".
  • The weapon has the highest base damage of any of the mod's melee weapons.

The Photon Ripper in use. Note the limited range of the teeth which extends over time.
