Monsoon's typhoon effect.

The Monsoon is a craftable post-Moon Lord bow that auto-fires five arrows at once. When firing Wooden Arrows, four of the five arrows are converted into sharks, and the fifth, middle arrow is converted into a Typhoon Arrow. Typhoon Arrows erupt into a swirling typhoon on contact with enemies or tiles, dealing damage over time in a wide area. Additionally, arrows deal 10% more damage when firing Wooden Arrows.

Its best modifier is Unreal.
