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, damaging nearby enemies upon colliding with a block. They cannot pass through solid objects, but may pass through platforms. It also emits light particles which continue traveling after the impact.

Its best modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Meteor Staff's projectiles spawn approximately 40-42 tiles above the player. They collide with any block in their path, potentially even directly upon spawning.
  • The Meteor Staff emits an explosion when it contacts enemies, allowing you to attack multiple entities at the same time.
  • Lock on or Target Lock does not work with the Meteor Staff, rather the projectiles spawn above the cursor instead of the targeted enemy.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • 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 also helps against the Flying Dutchman, as the boss cannot pass through walls, as well as the Martian Saucer which cannot pass or attack through low ceilings (though it can attack through blocks on the Desktop version Desktop version and Mobile version Mobile version, making this strategy less viable).
  • This weapon is extremely useful in early hardmode, as it can hit through walls and is easy to make.
  • The Meteor Staff can be very useful when lighting up the Minimap as the projectiles emit high quantities of light.
