The Famine Scepter is a Hardmodesummon weapon that is dropped by the Wall of Flesh. It spawns a Hungry Minion that follows the player and attacks enemies via latching onto them. Uniquely, the summoned Hungry Minion will have fleshy chains attached to the player. This prevents the summoned from Hungry Minion from moving too far away from the wielder. However, the player will slowly drain the life by one when the summoned Hungries are active. Like other minions, the summoned Hungry is invincible and follows the player for an unlimited amount of time, unless the player dies, summons a replacement minion, or cancels the buff.
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. Additionally, Minions cannot deal critical hits. The only significant advantage a Mythical Famine Scepter has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
