The Hydra is a craftable Hardmode classless weapon that deals massive damage to all enemies. When used, it fires fifteen extremely fast pellets that create small explosions when hitting an enemy or a tile. The damage it deals is proportional to the hit enemy's max health, making it incredibly effective against enemies with large amounts of health, such as late-game bosses.
Once a boss is spawned, the Hydra is only fireable once until the boss is defeated or until it despawns after the player is killed.
This weapon cannot receive any modifiers.
