The Brittle Star Staff is a Pre-Hardmode summon weapon that is dropped by the Desert Scourge. It summons a Brittle Star minion, which follows the player and attacks enemies by dashing at them to deal damage. Brittle stars hit up to four enemies before shattering, quickly regenerating afterwards. When used with its secondary fire (right-click), it causes all active brittle stars to stop attacking and orbit around the player. While orbiting, brittle stars still deal damage, do not shatter, and grant the player 5 defense per star.

Its best modifier is Mythical. While Ruthless may seem to provide a bigger damage by percentages, rounding reveals that Mythical and Ruthless boost the damage equally for this weapon.
