The Burden Breaker was a Hardmode Legendary accessory dropped from Skeletron Prime in Malice Mode. When equipped, once the player reached a horizontal speed of 25 mph, it accelerated the player by a factor of 2.5% per frame (roughly 4.4x speed per second), until either a solid block was hit or they achieved a speed of 2557 mph, at which point the player's speed was reset to zero.


  • Without any obstacles on their path or when using a flying mount, a player could move a horizontal distance of roughly 2600 feet with this accessory before losing all speed.
  • Players could find this accessory useful in larger worlds due to the immense travel speed, which could get the player to the edge of the world within seconds.
  • The item's effect were disabled during bossfights.
  • If the player unequipped the item after getting up to speed, they would still be able to maintain their speed, although no longer gaining acceleration.


These history sections are still a work-in-progress, and may not yet contain changes relevant to the current version of the Calamity Mod.
  • Now drops from Skeletron Prime in Malice Mode instead of in Revengeance Mode while enraged, or from Dungeon Guardian in Hardmode.
  • Tooltip now elaborates on its effect.
    • Can no longer be crafted.
    • Can now be dropped by Hardmode Dungeon Guardian or Revengeance Mode Skeletron Prime while enraged.
  • Now instantly kills the player if they touch Lava while it is equipped.
