The Helstorm is a craftable Hardmode gun. When used, it rapidly auto-fires two bullets at once, with a slightly random spread. The gun itself deals contact damage to enemies, a unique property for a ranged weapon that it shares with the Hellborn. Enemies that take contact damage from the gun will be inflicted with the Hellfire debuff.
Its best modifier is Unreal.
Recipes: No result
- As the gun's hitbox does not change based on aim, it will not always hit enemies that pass through the sprite.
- When dealing contact damage with the gun itself, the base damage is the same and the damage type is still Ranged.
- Despite being called the "Helstorm", it does not share a connection with The Underworld.
- Now inflicts Hellfire instead of On Fire!.
