One attack from the Razorblade Typhoon shooting two homing projectiles which damage enemies and also provide light.

The Razorblade Typhoon is a Hardmode magic weapon that fires 2 large, fast, disc-shaped projectiles per-click that home in on enemies. They can pierce and ricochet any number of times, each disc lasting about 3 seconds. The Razorblade Typhoon has a 1/5 (20%) chance of being dropped by Duke Fishron.

Its best Modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Liquids do not affect the speed of the discs.
  • Has a much quicker homing ability than most homing weapons, and turns very quickly to track moving enemies.
  • A disc can pierce unlimited enemies and even damage the same enemy any number of times due to its very high turn rate and 4x4 projectile size.
  • Discs will pass through walls if you are standing right next to them.
  • Each disc emits just enough light to see.
  • Razorblade Typhoon works best on large groups of enemies and moving targets.
  • Sometimes when there are too many projectiles on the screen, such as when the Ice Queen does her "Ice Spin" attack, the Razorblade Typhoon consumes mana but does not spawn a disc.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Pairs well with Spectre Armor because of its fire-and-forget homing ability, making healing or additional DPS easy.
  • Also couples well with any Magic Cuffs item for easy mana regeneration.
  • Slightly less effective against enemies with multiple parts or with attackable projectiles, as it may focus on other appendages or mini-enemies rather than the main body.
  • Its large projectiles work well for crowd control and clearing areas of Bees or Vines.
  • The projectiles, while large in display, seem to have a tile-collision hitbox of 3x3 squares, so it is possible to fire them through doorways.
  • As with the Magical Harp, the projectiles last for a set amount of time before dissipating, regardless of how many times they bounce or hit.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The 1.3.0.1 changelog incorrectly stated that this weapon now uses more mana, while in reality it uses less mana and got reworked in general.
  • 3DS logo.svg The Razorblade Typhoon's projectiles appear as Boomerangs rather than Discs. This is only visual, and it appears to have no effect on the weapon itself.
