The Star-Tainted Generator is a craftable Hardmode accessory that is a direct upgrade to the Jelly-Charged Battery, Nuclear Fuel Rod, and the Starbuster Core. When equipped, it grants +2 minion slots, which does not stack with downgrades, 7% increased summon damage, and immunity to the Irradiated debuff. It also causes all minion attacks to spawn a small astral explosion on enemy hits with a 1-second cooldown, dealing 40 summon damage, and causing all minions to inflict the Electrified, Astral Infection, and Irradiated debuffs.



Used in


  • The explosion effect is identical to the Starbuster Core, will be overridden by the Nucleogenesis's sparks, and will override Nuclear Fuel Rod's aura and Jelly-Charged Battery's orbs.
  • Its components grant more minion slots when equipped separately, with the Star-Tainted Generator only granting +2 maximum minions compared to +3.
