Animation of the Beam Sword.

The Beam Sword is a rare Hardmode sword that fires a gold-colored projectile that also emits a small amount of light. It can be swung more frequently than its projectile can fire. It has a 1/150 (0.67%) chance of being dropped by Armored Skeletons.

Its best modifier is Legendary.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The beam cannot penetrate blocks or enemies. This allows the beam to ignore any piercing invincibility frames that enemies gain from being hit by the sword.
  • The beam has an internal cooldown of approximately 1 second. The weapon cannot be switched to another item while the beam is on cool-down. The end of the cooldown is signaled by the same sound as your mana refilling.
  • The Frostbrand is a slightly weaker alternative to the Beam Sword that can Autoswing and pierce one enemy with its projectile.
  • The Beam Sword sword is very similar to the Enchanted Sword, in appearance and in effect.
