The Dragon's Breath is a post-Moon Lord flamethrower that is dropped by Yharon, Dragon of Rebirth, It uses Gel as ammunition. When used, it shoots a stream of fireballs that increases its firing speed the longer the weapon is used for. These fireballs pierce infinitely but lose 20% damage on each hit. After firing for long enough a cartridge is used, causing the weapon to unleash a solid beam of fire that will not consume Gel in the process. The firing speed will reset after the cartridge is ejected. It has an 80% chance to not consume Gel.

Its best modifier is Unreal.
