The Cryogenic Staff is a Hardmode sentry sold by the Archmage NPC. When summoned, the ice sentry fires an ice ball that inflicts the Frostburn debuff. After being deployed for three seconds, the sentry begins to spin and fire icicles in all directions, with the fire rate of the icicles increasing over time until it reaches its top speed.

Its best modifier is Ruthless since the Mythical modifier mostly affects the initial summon rather than the resulting sentry.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Ice Sentry's design was initially a redesign of Cryogen made by Cooper, a spriter and animator for the mod.
The Cryogenic Staff's homing ice ball and area of effect icicle attacks. Notice how the fire rate of the icicles increases the longer the sentry is deployed.
