The Nuclear Rod is a Hardmode accessory that drops from the Cragmaw Mire mini boss. While equipped, minions have a 33.33% chance to spawn shortly-lingering irradiated dust clouds on enemies, dealing 25% of the weapon’s damage, and inflicting the Irradiated debuff. It also grants one additional minion slot.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Irradiated aura from the Nuclear Rod softcaps at 40 summon damage. Any amounts exceeding it will be 90% less effective.
  • The aura effect will override the spawn of Jelly-Charged Battery's orbs, and will be overridden by Starbuster Core's explosion and Nucleogenesis's sparks.
