The Headsplitter is a craftable Pre-Hardmode axe. When left-clicked it could be used as an axe, right-clicking causes an explosion in a blast radius. However, using the ability too much will reduce the damage by a flat 1. Both on the swing and the right-click ability can inflict the Surging Anguish debuff, causing enemies to suffer damage over time.

Its best modifier is Light for harvesting purposes, or Legendary for combat purposes.
