The Core Controller is a craftable Hardmode summon weapon. It summons a Thermal Tank that launches rockets at nearby enemies. The Tank will remain stationary unless there is an obstacle between it and its target, at which point it will try and go around the obstacle until it has a line of sight with the target.

The summoned Thermal Tank inflicts Minion damage, but is different from traditional Minions in that it does not count toward the maximum Minion count and does not follow the player.

As the Thermal Tank does not count towards the Minion cap, it will not cause any traditional minions to despawn; though summoning a second Thermal Tank will cause the first to disappear, unless the player has sentry bonuses.

Its best Modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stats bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Strangely, this Minion can deal critical hits. The only significant advantage a Mythical Core Controller has over a Ruthless one is knockback and critical chance.
