The Cursed Hammer is a rare Hardmode enemy which spawns in the Underground Corruption. It hovers and spins before lunging at the player, traveling through any blocks to reach them. Any knockback stops its attack, forcing it to pause and spin up again. It can inflict the Cursed debuff.

On the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version and 3DS version 3DS version, the Shadow Hammer acts as an exclusive version of the Cursed Hammer, featuring increased defense and the chance to drop Hardmode ore bars.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Like most other enemies with the ability to pass through tiles, Cursed Hammers are unable to spawn if the player is standing in front of valid housing walls.
  • Like most other Corruption enemies, Cursed Hammers can only spawn on top of Corrupt grass, Ebonstone, Ebonsand, or Purple Ice. They can do so even if the player is not specifically in a Corruption biome.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Arkhalis is an excellent weapon to deal with this enemy, as even a single hit forces to recharge its spin. In effect, the Arkhalis can act as a shield surrounding the player, completely impassable by the Cursed Hammer.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Cursed Hammer: "Magicked through the pure hatred of the Corruption, this weapon flails about attempting to smash anything that breathes."
