Crush Depth is a debuff inflicted by most Abyss enemies and weapons, as well as the Depth Blade and its upgrades, the Abyss Blade and Neptune's Bounty. It is also inflicted by any type of Biome Blade while the player is in the Ocean. If inflicted on an enemy, they lose 60 health per second in Pre-Hardmode, and 400 health per second in Hardmode. If inflicted on the player, they instead lose 18 health per second. If the player has the Depths Charm equipped, they will only lose 9 health per second.
Additionally, if a player is inflicted with Crush Depth while in the Abyss, their breath meter will drain more quickly.
Crush Depth has its damage reduced by the amount of defense its target has. For the player, 5% of their defense (rounded down to the nearest integer) is subtracted from the health lost per second. For enemies, 500% of their defence is subtracted from the health lost per second.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Although the debuff does more damage to targets with lower defense, players with 0 defense take no damage from Crush Depth.
- NPCs that have more than 12 and 80 defense don't take any damage from Depth Crush in Pre-Hardmode and Hardmode respectively, but still emit blue particles from the debuff.
- The Crush Depth inflicted on enemies while in the Abyss causes them to lose 1500 health per second.
