The Meteor Staff is a Hardmode magic weapon which summons a falling meteorite projectile from the sky. The meteorite falls in the direction of the mouse cursor, dealing 50 damage to nearby enemies. It also emits light particles which continue traveling after colliding with blocks. It is similar to the Starfury, which summons a falling star projectile.
Its best Modifier is Mythical.
Meteor Staff's animation.
- The Meteor Staff's projectiles collide with blocks, even if they spawn in them completely, making it hard to use in the Underground and Cavern layers as a weapon. However, because the projectiles explode and release many glowing particles that go through blocks, it is an ideal cave exploration tool as it can light up the entire screen and reveal all caves nearby.
- This weapon can easily kill all three Mechanical Bosses, preferably paired with the Golden Shower because of its high fire rate (though there are safer tactics for the Destroyer).
- This weapon is useful for fighting Martian Madness early on.
