Polyp Launcher is a Pre-Hardmode sentry that is purchased from the Sea King at any time. When used, it summons a grounded polyp sentry which inaccurately fires gravity-affected balls of coral at nearby enemies. On hit, the coral chunk bursts into 1-4 fragments which deals half as much damage and knockback.
Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, minions cannot deal critical hits. The only lasting advantage a Mythical Polyp Launcher has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
