The Spark Spreader is a craftable Pre-Hardmode flamethrower that uses gel as ammunition. When used, it fires bursts of 4 short-ranged orange flames with a 0.2 second delay in between. The flames inflict the On Fire! debuff and pierce three enemies.

Its best modifier is Unreal.

  • Fixed its backpack sprite sometimes drawing with an incorrect offset.
    • Buffed damage from 7 to 10 and shot speed from 5 to 6, but nerfed use time from 10 to 12.
    • Sparks now last 0.7 seconds instead of 0.5, and grant -1 local immunity frames instead of 30.
    • No longer has a 70% chance to not consume ammo.
    • Improved the visuals of its sparks.
  • Now uses 10 Any Gold Bars in its recipe instead of a Flare Gun.
