The Wave Pounder sticking to the floor and striking a Target Dummy. Note the shake effect of the stealth strike and the explosion effect.

The Wave Pounder is a craftable post-Moon Lord bomb. When used, a gravity-affected bomb is thrown, which is able to stick onto a solid floor for 3 seconds or until a target is struck before it explodes. When exploded, a large shockwave is formed along with cosmetic cloud particles, continuously dealing damage for a short time.

Performing a stealth strike with the Wave Pounder causes the resulting explosion to dramatically increase in size, allowing it to shake the screen.

The weapon consumes 0.5 units of charge per use and has a maximum charge of 190.

Its best modifier is Flawless.



The Wave Pounder cannot be crafted until the Encrypted Schematic from the Underworld Bio-center Lab is decrypted. If the requirement has not been met, two lines of tooltip are added at the bottom of the item:
You don't have sufficient knowledge to create this yet
A specific schematic must be deciphered first

  • The Wave Pounder only deals 40% damage to Storm Weaver, 50% damage to Ceaseless Void's Dark Energies and 75% damage to The Devourer of Gods.
  • The Wave Pounder and its stealth strike can perform very well against worm-type enemies or bosses even with the damage reduction.
