The System Bane is a craftable Hardmode spiky ball. When used, the player throws a gravity-affected electric machine that continuously deals damage to targets that come into contact with it. Occasionally if there's a target nearby, the device releases lightning to triple-strike it. Up to 5 machines can be out at a time.

Performing a stealth strike with the System Bane causes the resulting machine to emit a large pulsating electric field that releases lightning into enemies within it.

The weapon consumes 0.085 units of charge per use and has a maximum charge of 135.

Its best modifier is Flawless.



The System Bane cannot be crafted until the Encrypted Schematic from the Jungle Bio-center Lab is decrypted. If the requirement has not been met, two lines of tooltip are added at the bottom of the item:
