Cryophobia is a Hardmode magic gun sold by the Archmage NPC for 36 Gold Coin after defeating all the Mechanical Bosses. When used it fires a light blue growing wave that splits into 3 twice, for 9 final waves, each pierces three times and inflicts the Glacial State and Frostbite debuffs.

Its best modifier is Mythical.
