The Gungnir is a Hardmode spear crafted using Hallowed Bars. It can deliver 3 to 4 hits per use. Like all Hallowed melee weapons, attacking with it emits a good deal of light and a sparkle effect.
Its best Modifier is Godly.
Console and Mobile Versions[edit | edit source]
- It's a fairly effective weapon against The Destroyer.
- The Gungnir is useful for finding hardmode ores such as Chlorophyte Ore, as its light can allow you to see into the walls. Thus, the spear retains its usefulness long after one has acquired a better spear.
- The Tonbogiri, crafted from the Gugnir, is even longer and still gives off light, making ores even easier to find.
- In Norse mythology, Gungnir is the spear of the god Odin.
