The Soul Harvester is a craftable Hardmode broadsword. It works similarly to the Death Sickle, as it shoots out spinning plague scythes, which stop after a certain time and spin in place, inflicting the Plague debuff to enemies. This projectile can pierce through multiple enemies, goes through blocks and gives off light, making it useful in caves. Enemies below 15% health hit by main swing itself will take an additional hit resulting from a dust explosion. The sickle additionally inflicts the Plague and Cursed Inferno debuffs.
Its best modifier is Legendary.
