Clentaminator firing
The Clentaminator changing Corruption to Purity

The Clentaminator is a Hardmode tool that creates or destroys biomes, using Solutions as ammunition. The particular Solution used determines its effects. It has the same firing pattern as the Flamethrower, but has a much longer range and fires through blocks.

The Clentaminator is the fastest means of spreading Hallow, Corruption, Crimson, and Mushroom Biome, or purifying biomes of Hallow, Corruption, or Crimson.

The Clentaminator can be bought from the Steampunker for 2 platinum coins.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • It is possible to change an entire world by digging Hellevators about every 118 blocks (236 ft on the Compass) and slowly descending each one, spraying both sides.
  • It could be a potentially effective tool to search for Life Fruit when using Dark Blue Solution, as it will break them out of place and convert the Jungle foliage to Glowing Mushroom foliage -- illuminating and creating a contrast between the background and the life fruit.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • "Clentaminator" is a portmanteau of the words 'Cleanse' and 'Contaminator', these being its two major uses.
  • It is tied with the Diamond Ring and Tiki Totem as the third most expensive item players can buy (the second most expensive item is the Parrot Cracker with the most expensive being the Companion Cube), but it is the only one among these with a practical use.
  • When using the Clentaminator, an apparatus can be seen on the character's back. A similar effect also occurs when equipping the Heat Ray, Leaf Blower, and Elf Melter. The apparatus is, as with the items listed above, invisible when the player has wings and is midair.
