The Xeno Staff in use. Note how the UFO teleports to the Skeletons on the right.

The Xeno Staff is a Hardmode, post-Golem summon weapon. It summons a UFO minion that teleports to nearby enemies and fires lasers at them. The UFO is capable of moving through blocks. It is dropped by the Martian Saucer during the Martian Madness event.

Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, minions cannot deal critical hits. The only lasting advantage a Mythical Xeno Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Take into consideration as they cannot attack omnidirectionally unlike the Tempest Staff. This is usually a problem in tight spaces but not when in open spaces.
  • The attacks of the UFOs hit instantly, and thus never miss, similar to the Magnet Sphere.
  • Prior to the 1.3.5 update the Xeno Staff had an extremely low value, making reforging it to a desired modifier very cheap and easy.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Despite having lower damage than the Tempest Staff, it is superior to Sharknados regarding attack speed and accuracy.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.4.1: Fire rate cooldown increased from 30 to 33 (roughly 10% slower attack speed).
