The Inferno Fork is a Hardmode, post-Plantera Magic Weapon that fires a moderately slow moving fireball which will deal initial damage before exploding into a large, damaging cloud of fire which lasts for several seconds, and always inflicts the On Fire! debuff to entities that aren't immune. It is rarely dropped by Diabolists in the post-Plantera Dungeon.
Like most Magic weapons, its best Modifier is Mythical.
- Unlike most fire-based weapons, the Inferno Fork works under water.
- The initial fireball will not pass through solid blocks, but the resulting blast can hit enemies on the other side of walls.
- The Inferno Fork pairs extremely well with the Spectre Armor. The large area of the inferno will hit most enemies several times, with each hit providing healing from the armor set bonus. This is very effective against bosses such as The Destroyer or the Golem, as it will hit multiple parts of the boss.
- The Inferno Fork can be used to battle huge amounts of enemies at once due to the lingering cloud its fireballs create. This can be exceptionally useful during invasion scenarios or if the player is being overwhelmed by large groups of foes.
- If paired with the best magic enhancer, it can easily defeat any Hardmode boss as it will deal great damage over time and has a large area of damage. Inferno Fork can outclass the Shadowbeam Staff, since the Staff requires some Arena preparation to maximize damage rate, while the Inferno Fork will be just as effective in either a prepared arena or a natural landscape. It also has more range than the Shadowbeam Staff.
- The explosion of inferno closely resembles "Flare", a recurring spell from the Final Fantasy series.
