The swinging animation of the Hammush.

The Hammush is a Hardmode hammer that is purchased from the Truffle for 40 GC after at least one mechanical boss has been defeated. When swung, the Hammush produces spinning mushrooms like that of the Mushroom Spear, which hurt enemies, even through walls. Like the Pwnhammer (and higher-tier hammers), it can also be used to destroy Altars, and shares its tooltip.

Its best modifier is Legendary. However, due to rounding, Legendary, Light, Deadly, Agile, Quick, and Nasty provide equal boosts to mining speed for this tool.

  • The Hammush's name and design are a reference to the Terraria webcomic "The Legend of Maxx", where, in comic #74, Maxx creates a weapon of the exact same name and design with two Glowing Mushrooms for the hammer's head.
