The Midnight Sun Beacon is a craftable post-Moon Lord summon weapon that is the direct upgrade to the Xeno Staff and the Lunar Portal Staff. When used it throws out a Midnight Sun Beacon that summons four lasers down from the sky after three seconds. Once the lasers have concluded firing, a Midnight Sun UFO will be summoned. The Midnight Sun UFO will fire small lasers towards enemies, and occasionally fire one sweeping laser beam similar to the Moon Lord's laser beam.
While Midnight Sun UFOs are summoned, the player can continue to throw out Midnight Sun Beacons even if they have used up all of their Minion Slots.
Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, minions cannot deal critical hits. The only lasting advantage a Mythical Midnight Sun Beacon has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
