The Elemental Eruption being used against Target Dummies and a Super Dummy.

The Elemental Eruption is a craftable post-Moon Lord flamethrower that fires long bursts of rainbow flames. The flames can pierce five enemies, and as with all flamethrowers of its type, it auto-fires. It additionally fires pairs of elemental flares while firing which will home in on nearby enemies.

Its best modifier is Unreal.
