The Trident is a type of spear found in Water Chests. It has slightly more base damage than the Spear. When attacking, it stretches out, possibly hitting enemies multiple times. It is a good starter weapon if you have just begun and have found a water chest.

Its best Modifier is Godly.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The real-world Trident is used for spear fishing and historically as a polearm. It is said to have the power of control over the ocean in Greek, Roman, and Hindu mythology and is wielded by the olympian god Poseidon. As such, it is found in underwater chests.
