The Ancient Ice Chunk is a Hardmode summon weapon that drops from Ice Claspers. It summons a flying Ice Clasper that follows the player. It deals damage by dashing through enemies and moving in an erratic pattern. When at far range from target, it will instead fire ice shards at them that inflict the Frostburn debuff for 3 seconds.

Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, minions cannot deal critical hits. The only lasting advantage a Mythical Ancient Ice Chunk has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
