The Photon Ripper is a post-Moon Lordchainsaw 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.
