The Inferno Fork being used. Note the lasting explosion that damages over time.

The Inferno Fork is a Hardmode, post-Plantera magic weapon that fires a moderately slow-moving fireball which explodes into a large, circular cloud of damaging fire that lasts for two seconds upon contact with an enemy or surface. The cloud of fire deals (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 75% damage (52 damage) / (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) 65% damage (45 damage). The initial fireball and the resulting explosion also inflict damaged enemies with the (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) Hellfire / (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) On Fire! debuff for 8–15 seconds. The Inferno Fork has a 1/20 (5%) / 59/800 (7.38%) chance of being dropped by Diabolists in the post-Plantera Dungeon.

Its best modifier is Mythical.


  • Unlike most fire-based weapons, the Inferno Fork works under water, but the speed of projectiles is reduced.
  • The initial fireball will not pass through solid blocks, but the resulting blast can hit enemies on the other side of walls.
  • Despite looking like one, the Inferno Fork cannot be used as a melee weapon.

  • The Inferno Fork can be used to easily battle huge amounts of enemies at once due to the cloud its fireballs create. This cloud can be exceptionally useful during invasion scenarios, or if the player is being overwhelmed by large groups of foes.
