Greatlance of Terra's bonus projectiles being demonstrated against a target dummy.

The Greatlance of Terra is a Hardmode throwing weapon. When the thrown lance comes in contact with a surface, the lance dissipates and forms 2 projectiles that travel at random directions and velocities. The projectiles ricochet off surfaces multiple times, split on enemy hits and disappear after a while.

The lance can later be upgraded to the Cosmic Desolation, a throwing weapon that acts similarly to the Greatlance of Terra, but with projectiles that are fired during the throw as well.
