The Catastrophe Claymore is a craftable Hardmode broadsword that autoswings. Upon swing, it fires out one of three damaging projectiles, which will inflict numerous debuffs on hit, depending on their color. Hitting an enemy with the blade itself has a chance to inflict multiple debuffs all at once.
Its best modifier is Legendary.
