The Diseased Pike is a Hardmode spear that is dropped by The Plaguebringer Goliath. Hitting enemies causes the spear to fire out plague seekers that home into enemies and damage them. The plague seekers deal 75% of the weapon's damage and inflict the Plague debuff.

Its best modifier is Godly. It cannot get modifiers that affect size.
