The Golden Shower is a Hardmode magic weapon that fires a slightly arcing golden stream, similar to the Aqua Scepter. It inflicts the Ichor Debuff, which lowers defense by 20. The stream pierces through up to 5 enemies. The Golden Shower sprays three times per use, and the player can change the direction of aim between these sprays. Enemies hit will glow gold.

Crafting the Golden Shower requires ingredients found only in worlds containing Crimson, so it cannot be obtained in worlds containing Corruption without ingredients from other worlds.

Its best Modifier is Mythical.

  • Enemies can only receive a single debuff at any given time.
  • In the PC and Console editions, players do not receive the debuff in PvP games.
  • The Golden Shower projectile is very long, rather than being a small projectile traveling quickly, as most other weapons produce. It is possible to have the same projectile hit the same spot twice if fired straight up.
  • Clicking once will fire three streams in quick succession, not just one.


  • The Golden Shower's fast speed and piercing ability make it a great item for fighting large groups of enemies.
  • Its ability to reduce defenses makes it effective against bosses, as one can attack with it and then equip a stronger weapon to deal even more damage. It is one of the best Magic Weapons for taking out worm-type enemies before obtaining a Magical Harp. Combine with Crystal Storm, Cursed Flames or the Magnet Sphere, for devastating effect against groups.
  • Can be used in a Hunter Potion capacity since enemies hit by it will glow.
  • Since it is easily obtained early on in Hardmode, and is very useful for surviving the increased difficulty, obtaining it should be a priority as soon as the Wall of Flesh is defeated.


  • "Golden shower" is a slang term for the act of urinating on someone, with the name here likely referring to the fact that the attack looks like a stream of urine.
  • For its tier, this item is one of the highest DPS magic items in the game (without even considering the defense-lowering ability), with a DPS of 233. Counting the reduction of defense, Golden Shower has a DPS of roughly 339.
