Animation of the Vulcan Repeater.

The Vulcan Repeater is a post-Ocram Hardmode repeater. All arrows fired by this bow are converted to special Vulcan BoltVulcan Bolt, which explode on impact, dealing damage to nearby enemies (and the player). Along with the other items crafted with Souls of Blight, it is strong in terms of raw power, but is out-shined by weapons with more unique effects.

Its best modifier is Unreal.

On the Console version Console version and Mobile version Mobile version, the Vulcan Repeater was replaced with a Chlorophyte Shotbow upon updating to the equivalent.
