The Reaper is a post-Moon Lord rogue weapon that drops from Reaper Sharks after Polterghast has been defeated. It is the rare variant of the Valediction. When fired, it throws out a reaper scythe that homes in onto enemies. Each reaper scythe will hit an enemy twelve times before disappearing, inflicting the Crush Depth debuff onto enemies.
Performing a stealth strike with The Reaper will cause four scythes to be thrown instead of one.
Its best modifier is Flawless.
- Unlike the Valediction, The Reaper is not a boomerang and will not return to the player once thrown.
- This weapon does not benefit from the effects of the Invisibility Potion or the Shadow Potion.
