Nanites are a crafting material used solely for crafting the Flask of Nanites and Nano Bullets, whose purpose is to inflict the Confused debuff with Ranged or Melee Weapons. Nanites are sold by the Cyborg NPC.

Confused enemies will walk in the wrong direction for 2 seconds, giving the player some "breathing room", but only if the enemy is not immune to the status effect (many non-walking enemies are immune).

  • Nanites, nanomachines, and other similar terms refer to nanotechnology, the ability to make microscopic robots that could hypothetically fit into the human bloodstream and apply medication, to be used in constructing extremely fine machinery, or to make regenerating material by rebuilding it when it is damaged. They are the basis for many science fiction storylines wherein they tend to be capable of microscopically mending or altering people and objects.
