Animation of the Trident. Note its piercing abilities.

The Trident is a type of spear found in Water Chests, and Ocean and Seaside Crates. It has slightly more base damage than the Spear.

If the Trident is held while submerged in water or lava the player moves faster through that liquid and has an increased jump height. This does not work in honey.

Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase the average damage output by the same amount.

Notes[]

  • As of 1.4, the Trident has the same damage as The Rotted Fork while having higher knockback, but less range.
  • In Celebrationmk10 worlds, the Trident can be found with the normally-incompatible Legendary modifier. The size boost will not take effect, though it is still the best modifier possible.

History[]

  • Desktop 1.4.0.1:
    • Damage increased from 11 to 14.
    • Knockback increased from 5 to 6.
    • When held, gives unrestricted movement in water.
