The Spear of Paleolith is a craftable Hardmode non-consumable javelin. It automatically throws high-velocity spears which travel extremely far before being affected by gravity. These spears do not pierce through enemies, but they rain down fossil shards while traveling similar to the North Pole. The fossil shards deal half the damage of the spear. Any enemy hit by the spear or the fossil shards will be inflicted with Armor Crunch.
Performing a stealth strike with the Spear of Paleolith will cause the next spear thrown to travel slower but farther and release more fossil shards.
Its best modifier is Flawless.
