The Clentaminator is a Hardmode tool that can be used to create or destroy biomes. It uses Solutions as ammunition, with each Solution spreading a different biome. It has a similar firing pattern to the Flamethrower, but has a much longer range, fires through Blocks and works in Water. The Clentaminator is the fastest means of spreading or removing Hallow, Corruption and Crimson. It can also rapidly convert Jungle to Mushroom Biome and vice versa.
The Clentaminator can be purchased from the Steampunker for 2 . Solutions are also purchased from the Steampunker.
The Clentaminator cannot be reforged, and therefore cannot have Modifiers.
Solutions[edit | edit source]
There are currently five different Solutions. Most are sold by the Steampunker, who sells different solutions based on certain conditions.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Clentaminator has a range of 60 tiles.
- It is affected by boosts that reduce ammo usage, thereby saving solution.
- Its stream emits a faint amount of light.
- Using it is the only way to create Converted Walls.
- Dark Blue Solution can break a Plantera's Bulb when the Jungle blocks beneath it are converted to Mushroom Biome blocks.
- When using the Purple, Blue, or Red Solution, Mud will be replaced with Dirt along the surface to accommodate grass blocks.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Since boosts which reduce ammo usage also affect the consumption of solution, it is recommended that you have at least two ammo-conserving items or buffs before using the Clentaminator. The following items may be used: Chlorophyte Helmet and Vortex Breastplate give a constant chance to not consume ammo; while Ammo Reservation Potion and the Ammo Box provide temporary (but long-lasting) ammo-conserving buffs. Combining all four of these results in a 61.6% chance to not consume ammunition (including solution). For players who cannot get a hold of the Vortex Breastplate, the Shroomite Breastplate is a good replacement.
- It is possible to change an entire world by digging Hellevators about every 116 blocks (232 ft/ 70 meters on the Compass) and slowly descending each one, spraying both sides.
- It could be a potentially effective tool to search for Life Fruit when using Dark Blue Solution, as it will break them out of place and convert the Jungle foliage to Glowing Mushroom foliage -- illuminating and creating a contrast between the background and the life fruit, although can be dangerous because it also breaks Plantera's Bulbs and summons it.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- "Clentaminator" is a portmanteau of the words 'Cleanse' and 'Contaminator', these being its two major uses.
- It is tied with the Diamond Ring and Tiki Totem as the third most expensive item players can buy (the second most expensive item is the Parrot Cracker with the most expensive being the Companion Cube), but it is the only one among these with a practical use.
- When using the Clentaminator, an apparatus can be seen on the character's back. A similar effect also occurs when equipping the Heat Ray, Leaf Blower, and Elf Melter. The apparatus is, as with the items listed above, invisible when the player has wings and is midair.
