Starfury's animation.

The Starfury is a Broadsword that summons a star projectile from the sky when swung. The star falls in the direction of the mouse cursor, dealing damage to any enemies hit, pierces infinitely (only dealing damage on up to 2 enemies), and also emits light particles. The Starfury is one of the four rare items that can only be obtained from Skyware Chests or Skyware Crates on Floating Islands.

The sword itself deals a base damage of 22 as a melee weapon, while the stars deal an additional 31 damage each, and can pierce up to 2 enemies.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Stars that spawn within solid ground will fly through blocks until reaching open space, and only then become solid, affording the weapon continued usefulness while underground.
  • You cannot switch items while the Starfury's projectile ability is recharging.
  • The falling star will sometimes glitch through 1 block-thick floors. This seems to happen more often as the player changes direction or jumps.
  • Equipment that increases melee speed, such as Shadow armor, will increase the speed of the falling stars.
  • Beware when using the Starfury in the Underground Jungle as it can easily break the Larva in an undiscovered Bee Hive, summoning the Queen Bee, a Boss
  • The Star Wrath can be considered an upgrade to this weapon.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Starfury can be used to reveal caves, as its light particles continue traveling after colliding with blocks. However, unlike the Star Cloak, Star Veil and Bee Cloak's similar effect, the stars don't emit light until they pass into open space and become solid, so it cannot be used to map out areas that are blocked up.
    • The Frost Armor's set bonus affects the falling stars even while they are passing through blocks, which WILL map the solid areas.
  • The Starfury also works very effectively against Wyverns.
  • The Starfury can be easily found in early-game, making it a good beginning weapon.
