Staying out of melee range is recommended, as its high attack and the ability to inflict such a debilitating debuff is a dangerous combination. If you must fight these mobs in close quarters, then a spear may be your best bet for keeping them at bay. Alternatively, any weapon that can strike multiple times in quick succession will essentially "stunlock" these monsters, making them very easy to kill.
- The Cursed Hammer is the Corruption's version of the Enchanted Sword and Crimson Axe. It has the exact same attack pattern, stats, and abilities as the others.
- Using a weapon with knockback makes it start spinning to try to charge the player again.
- It is the only Cursed weapon to not share a sprite with any other tool.
- As Excalibur has the same sprite as the Enchanted Sword and Blood Lust Cluster has the same sprite as the Crimson Axe, the Cursed Hammer was speculated to be a preview of a future Hammer. We may see this hammer in the newer versions coming to consoles, or in the update that was hinted recently.
- Added to the game.
