The Star-Tainted Generator is a craftable Hardmode accessory that functions as a direct upgrade to the Jelly-Charged Battery, Nuclear Rod, and the Starbuster Core. While equipped the player gains +2 minion slots, which doesn't stack with downgrades, and 7% increased minion damage. In addition to this, all minion attacks spawn a small astral explosion on enemy hits with a one-second cooldown, dealing 40 summon damage, and all minions will inflict the Electrified, Astral Infection, and Irradiated debuffs.

Used in[]


  • The explosion effect is identical to the Starbuster Core, will be overridden by the Nucleogenesis's sparks, and will override Nuclear Rod's aura and Jelly-Charged Battery's orbs.
  • Its components give more minion slots when worn separately, with the Star-Tained Generator only giving +2 max minions compared to +3.
