The Chlorophyte Saber attacking Target Dummies. Note how the projectile can pierce walls.

The Chlorophyte Saber is a Hardmode sword which occasionally fires a Spore Cloud projectile when swung. It costs no ammunition or mana, emits light, deals (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 70% / (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) the same damage as the sword but no knockback, is not affected by gravity, and can pierce an infinite number of enemies. The Chlorophyte Saber is the less powerful but faster sword of the two that can be crafted from Chlorophyte Bars, with the other being the Chlorophyte Claymore.

Its best modifier is Legendary.
