The Aquatic Discharge is a Pre-Hardmode shortsword that is dropped by the Desert Scourge. When swung, it emits harmless particles of electricity. Upon killing an enemy with it, it will release small electric sparks which linger on the ground for a short time, dealing damage to enemies that touch them.
Like every shortsword, it has an incredibly short range, but unlike most other vanilla shortswords, it has autoswing.
Its best modifier is Legendary.
