The Nanoblack Reaper is a craftable post-Moon Lord rogue boomerang. It rapidly throws high velocity scythes at a massive range which can pass through tiles. Each scythe thrown constantly summons spinning energy blades which aggressively home in on nearby enemies. Both the scythes and the energy blades ignore NPC immunity frames. If there are any bosses nearby, the energy blades will ignore other enemies and only target bosses.

Performing a stealth strike with the Nanoblack Reaper causes the next scythe thrown to release many afterimages of itself as it travels, the afterimages stay stationary for one second before rapidly homing in towards nearby enemies.

Its best modifier is Flawless.




  • Moving away from the scythe's direction after a stealth strike allows for more afterimages to be released, as it will travel for a longer time.


  • The Nanoblack Reaper was intentionally designed to be powerful when used in conjunction with Nanotech due to their similar names and themes.
  • This weapon actually has a unique rarity, but is referred to here as Hot Pink for consistency between weapons.
    • This unique rarity alternates between grey (#565656 ●) and light turquoise (#56FFD6 ●) colors.
