Not to be confused with the Rainbow Gun.

The Rainbow Rod is a Hardmode magic weapon that launches a controllable projectile, similar to the Flamelash or Magic Missile, and can be considered an upgraded version of them. The projectile is white, and emits a good deal of light that rotates through the entire color spectrum. Unlike the Flamelash, the Rainbow Rod's projectile can move through water without dissipating, as well as lava. It can be controlled for up to one minute before dissipating. The Rainbow Rod can either be obtained from crafting (Mobile Versionor from Chaos Elementals).

Its best Modifier is Mythical.
