The Baleful Harvester is a craftable Hardmode broadsword. When swung, it shoots a fiery orange skull that breaks into 3 homing fire orbs upon hitting an enemy, which fly in random directions at varying speeds. Upon striking enemies with the blade, homing pumpkins will spawn off-screen and attack enemies in the same fashion as The Horseman's Blade.
Its best modifier is Legendary.
- Briefly after being fired, the skulls will partially turn towards the closest player (including the caster), regardless of the presence of enemies and whether or not PvP is enabled. They will not turn if the nearest player is directly behind them.
