The Cryo-Fang is a non-consumable Hardmode throwing weapon that can autofire. It is dropped by the Borean Strider. It travels a considerable distance and creates a small ice explosion upon contacting an enemy or tile, hitting multiple enemies and applying the Freezing debuff that significantly decreases their movement speed; however, bosses cannot receive this effect.
Like most non-consumable throwing weapons, using this weapon builds up an exhaustion meter that appears below the player. Not using the weapon will make the meter slowly go back down. However, if it becomes completely filled, the user will be inflicted with the Exhaustion debuff, causing all non-consumable throwing weapons to deal massively decreased damage for some time. The meter resets after the debuff ends.
Its best Modifier is Unreal.
