The four Sand Shark-shaped projectiles' arcs, with two of them hitting Target Dummies
The Mineral Mortar is a craftable Hardmode launcher that fires projectiles shaped like Forbidden Fragments. Upon collision with a block, this projectile splits into four flying Sand Shark-shaped projectiles that spread out and do additional damage. Neither the initial rocket nor the sharks can hit more than one enemy, though the initial blast has a small area of effect.
Its best modifier is Unreal.
- Since the sharks released by the weapon slightly home towards the player, one can kite them into enemies for additional damage if desired.
- Despite the fact that rockets are normally post-Plantera, players can craft rockets in Calamity by using Explosive Powder and an Empty Bullet.
- Unlike many rocket launchers, it will not deal any damage to the player.
- Two of the shark projectiles are always facing backwards relative to their movement. It is unknown why this is the case.
