The Helstorm is a craftable Hardmode gun. When used, it rapidly auto-fires two bullets at once, with a slightly random spread. The gun itself deals contact damage to enemies, a unique property for a ranged weapon that it shares with the Flak Kraken, Marnite Bayonet and Hellborn. Enemies that take contact damage from the gun will be inflicted with the On Fire! debuff.

The Helstorm also has a rare item variant called the Hellborn that drops from Devil Fish after defeating Golem.

Its best modifier is Unreal.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • As the gun's hitbox does not change based on aim, it will not always hit enemies that pass through the sprite.
  • When dealing contact damage with the gun itself, the base damage is the same and the damage type is still Ranged.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Despite being called the "Helstorm", it does not share a connection with The Underworld.
    • This is likely because Scoria Ore used to spawn in the Underworld, before being moved to the Abyss.
