The Virulence is a Hardmode broadsword that autoswings and is dropped from The Plaguebringer Goliath. Upon swinging the sword, a large green cloud is fired in the direction of the player's mouse that deals 85% of the weapon's damage, pierces indefinitely, goes through tiles, and inflicts the Plague debuff on enemy hits.

Its best modifier is Legendary.
