Influx Waver attack animation. Note the returning projectile effect on hit. Also note how the projectiles do not pierce.

The Influx Waver is a Hardmode, post-Golem broadsword. It fires a sword projectile in a straight line towards the cursor as it is swung. After the projectile successfully makes contact with an enemy or another, hostile projectile, it will disappear, but can return up to two more times to attack a nearby enemy, or the same enemy.

The Influx Waver has a 1/6 (16.67%) (Desktop Version) / 1/9 (11.11%) (Console VersionMobile Version) chance of being dropped by a Martian Saucer during the Martian Madness event.

Its best modifier is Legendary.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Influx Waver's projectile has the following properties:
    • It travels at about 55 mph and has a maximum range of 5500 tiles. It appears to fluctuate in size and becomes much smaller as it gains distance.
    • After hitting an enemy or another projectile, it teleports to three nearby enemies, prioritizing the original target. It does not track teleporting enemies like the Necromancer, nor does it target critters.
    • As with all projectiles, it slows down significantly in honey. However, if it hits an enemy in the honey, the returning projectiles travel at normal speed.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The sword projectile's teleportation makes the Influx Waver a versatile weapon, suitable for both high-health targets and crowd control.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • While it deals more damage than the Terra Blade, it is not a direct upgrade. The Terra Blade has a slightly faster speed and more knockback, and unlike the Influx Waver, does not rely on automatic targeting.
  • In the source code, this item is also referred to as "Spellbound Edge". This suggests that it was intended to be a direct upgrade to the Enchanted Sword.
    • This is supported by the fact that both items share a resemblance to the Master Sword from the action-adventure video game franchise The Legend of Zelda.
