The Scorched Earth is a craftable post-Moon Lord launcher which is an upgrade to the Blissful Bombardier. When used, it consumes two rockets and fires a burst of four homing rockets which can travel through tiles. After five seconds or upon hitting an enemy, the rocket creates a large explosion which inflicts the Daybroken debuff and spawns five additional cluster bombs in random directions outward from the enemy. Each cluster bomb explodes into 2-3 gravity-affected flaming shards. Both the cluster bomb and shrapnel deal 25% damage.

Its best modifier is Unreal.
