Quasar is a Hardmode dagger that drops from Astrum Deus. It is the rare variant of the Radiant Star. It functions identically to the Radiant Star with the main difference being that the explosion will pull in enemies. The black hole-like effect does not affect bosses. If an enemy is hit by a Radiant Star knife that is caught up in the explosion, astral, holy, and fallen stars will rain down on them, dealing full damage of the Radiant Star knife. Unlike the Radiant Star, the split knives of Quasar do not home in on enemies.

Its best modifier is Demonic for damage output, or Rapid for speed because it cannot get modifiers that affect knockback.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The term "Quasar" often refers to an astronomical object of very high luminosity often found near the centers of galaxies. They are the result of the matter in a supermassive black hole's accretion disk reaching incredible temperatures due to friction and glowing insanely brightly as a result
  • The Quasar is a reference to the item of the same name from Borderlands 2
  • The tooltip is a reference to a meme where the word "suck" is purposely spelled as "succ".
  • The color palette of the weapon is a reference to the astral palette in previous versions of the mod.
