The Slap Hand is a Hardmode melee weapon that is notable for having extremely high knockback- a rating of 20, the highest value among all player-caused sources of knockback and almost twice the item with the second highest value. Aside from this, it functions as a normal Broadsword, swung over the player.
Its best modifier is Legendary.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- While not an especially potent weapon, the Slap Hand's extremely high knockback makes it a good choice for keeping enemies away instead of directly fighting.
- With a decent knockback modifier and a Titan Glove (or one of its upgrades) equipped, the Slap Hand can easily catapult most enemies halfway across the screen.
- It can be useful when spelunking or exploring when you would otherwise not want to fight, due to the ease at which you can force enemies out of your way.
- Hitting a Snow Flinx, Wingless Slimer or especially a Pinky results in massive knockback, as they have negative knockback resistance.
- Due to their nature, flying enemies (notably Corruptors) can be easily sent flying far off the screen with this weapon, causing them to despawn.
