The Impaler is a craftable Hardmode repeater and an upgrade to the Stake Launcher. It rapidly fires stakes with a 33.33% chance to fire an exploding stake instead of a fire stake. Exploding Stakes pierce 7 enemies and cause explosions on hit, while Fire Stakes pierce 9 enemies and inflict the On Fire! debuff. Unlike the Stake Launcher, the Impaler doesn't deal bonus damage against Vampires.

Its best modifier is Unreal.
