The Paladin's Hammer is a very fast boomerang-type thrown weapon. It is dropped by the Paladin mini-boss found in the Hard Mode Dungeon after defeating Plantera.

The Paladin's Hammer cannot pass through walls, although it will sometimes pass through a one-block-thick wall when thrown at the right angle from the right distance. Only one Hammer can be thrown at a time. When it hits an object, or goes its maximum distance, the hammer returns and another one can be thrown. The hammer can be thrown twice, with multiple speed modifiers, though is nearly impossible to notice without screenshots due to its incredible velocity. The Paladin's Hammer will pass through enemies and is capable of striking enemies multiple times.

When combined with the correct modifiers and melee attack bonuses, the Hammer can be even more powerful than the Terra Blade, easily taking down all Hard Mode bosses with moderate to minimal effort.

Notes

  • Since this weapon is unable to possess size modifiers, the highest possible prefix for this weapon is Godly.

Trivia

The unusual method of attack with this weapon may be a reference to Thor (Old Norse Þórr), a Norse god who fought by tossing his hammer Mjöllnir at enemies instead of melee attacks. It would then return to his hand, similar to how this weapon and all other boomerang-type weapons behave.
