The Sky Fracture is an early Hardmode magic weapon. When used, three energy swords will be summoned in quick succession from behind the player, aiming at the cursor's location. Each projectile can hit one enemy or block before it disappears.

Unlike the Magic Missile from which it is crafted, the energy blades cannot be controlled. The Sky Fracture has an extra critical strike chance of 24%, compared with the usual 4%.

Its best Modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Unlike the Magic Missile from which it is crafted, the Sky Fracture is not a controlled projectile weapon. It can be regarded as a magical equivalent of the Onyx Blaster, with a faster fire rate.
  • The projectiles do not appear to be fired directly from the weapon but are summoned from random points near the player.
  • Each sword projectile can take on one of 14 different appearances.
  • Despite looking like a sword, the Sky Fracture is a magic weapon.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The closer the cursor is to the player when the Sky Fracture is used, the more the energy swords will spread out.
  • While its base damage is rather low, this is alleviated by its three-round attack and exceptional critical strike chance, making it a very powerful early-hardmode weapon.
    • In fact, this weapon has been proven to be useful on all pre-Cultist stages: it's quite effective against Plantera's first phase and can help to finish off Golem's second one.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This weapon is tied with the Obsidian Swordfish for the second-highest critical strike chance (24%), being beaten only by the Sniper Rifle (29%).
  • The unused internal name of this item is "magic glove", which suggests this item once took the appearance of a glove.
