The Catastrophe Claymore is a craftable Hardmode broadsword that autoswings. When swung, it fires one of three bolts with various colors: red, blue, or yellow, which all inflict various debuffs depending on their color. Red bolts inflict Hellfire, blue bolts inflict Frostbite, and yellow bolts inflict Ichor. All bolts cause an eruption of particles on collision. Hitting enemies with the sword itself also has a chance to inflict the Hellfire, Frostbite, and Ichor debuffs.

Its best modifier is Legendary.
