The Gungnir is a Hardmode spear crafted using Hallowed Bars. When used, it emits the light particles typical of the Hallowed theme.

Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase its average damage output by the same amount.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Gungnir is useful for finding valuable Hardmode resources such as Chlorophyte Ore, as its light can allow seeing into walls. Therefore, the spear may retain its usefulness after no longer serving combat purposes due to being outclassed.
    • Old-gen console version3DS version The Tonbogiri, crafted from the Gungnir, is even longer and may thus be preferable for finding resources.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In Norse mythology, Gungnir is the spear of the god Odin, said to never miss once it is thrown.
  • Prior to the Desktop version Desktop and Mobile version Mobile1.2.3 update, the Gungnir had a sell value of 30, the highest in the game – this meant reforging a Godly Gungnir prior to 1.2 (where reforging value was reduced from 5 times the item's sell value down to half) cost 3174446.
