Death is an item that activates and deactivates Death Mode. Death Mode has multiple effects on gameplay:

  • All vanilla and Calamity bosses are severely buffed and have unique AI changes to increase difficulty dramatically.
  • Rage Mode and Adrenaline Mode boost the player's damage four times as much, from 100% to 400% (145% to 580% with all three powerups) and 250% to 700% respectively.
  • All enemy spawn rates are boosted by 40%.
  • Enemy damage is boosted by 50%, stacking with the 15% extra damage taken in Revengeance Mode for a total of 65%.
  • Bosses will randomly spawn even if their summoning item is not used, for as long as their respective requirements are met and are not defeated once.
    • Players will be forewarned of an upcoming boss and after one minute after the warning, the boss will spawn.

It is obtained from opening a Starter Bag or by crafting it at a Demon Altar or Crimson Altar.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Death can only be activated and deactivated while Revengeance Mode is active.
  • If used while a boss is alive, it will instantly kill the player and despawn any active bosses.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item was formerly used to activate an insta-death mode in which any damage would instantly kill the player.
    • This is now the effect of the Armageddon item, although Armageddon only functions while a boss is alive.
