Animation of the Mushroom Spear.

The Mushroom Spear is a Hardmode spear that can be purchased from the Truffle for 70 GC after at least one of the mechanical bosses has been defeated. When used, it will extend the reach of the spear by summoning seven spinning mushroom projectiles that hang in midair, deal 1/3 (33.33%) of the spear's base damage, and do not inflict any knockback.[1]

Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase the average damage output by the same amount.


  • The mushrooms have no "piercing" ability, and thus disappear after hitting a single enemy.
  • Mushrooms appear at the point of the spear at a point during the thrust. Therefore, they will be "stacked" on top of one another if the player is retreating while thrusting, or spread out further if advancing.


  • Combined with the Frost armor and/or the Magma Stone (or any of its upgrades), both the weapon and the mushrooms will emit a small amount of light, making the Mushroom Spear extremely useful for exploring underground and checking for nearby caves since the spinning mushrooms can go through walls.
  • Due to the spinning mushroom mechanic, the Mushroom Spear can be used to attack enemies through walls without consuming any mana or ammo and without cooldown.
  • The mushroom projectiles last for a little over a second after spawning, meaning they can hit an enemy after the player has already retracted the spear.
  • Because the mushrooms have no knockback, it is often possible for enemies to walk through several of them. Therefore, they do not serve as an effective barrier to keep enemies away.



  • Desktop 1.2.3:
