The Devastation is a craftable post-Moon Lord broadsword that autoswings and is the direct upgrade to the Catastrophe Claymore. When swung, it fires one of three galaxy beams with various colors: red, blue, or purple, which all inflict various debuffs depending on their color. Purple beams inflict On Fire!, red beams inflict Frostburn, and blue beams inflict Ichor. The sword also fires additional galaxy beams from the sky on the cursor's position that explode on collision and deal half of the weapon's damage. The sword itself and the additional galaxy beams inflict the On Fire!, Frostburn, and Ichor debuffs.

Its best modifier is Legendary.
