Poison Spear is a craftable Weapon exclusive to the DLC. It does the same damage as a Shipwrecked Spear and Poisons the target on hit.
Poisoned enemies move slower, attack less often, and deal less damage. However, the
food items that drop from poisoned enemies will have their freshness reduced to 50%.
The Poison Spear is a useful melee weapon in killing Prime Apes as it slows their movement speed on hit.
Because of its ability to slow down and weaken enemies, this weapon is excellent against Bosses like the Tiger Shark; or in Reign of Giants linked worlds, against the Dragonfly due to her fast attack period, making it safer to land a hit and kite while she's poisoned.
The Sealnado is not affected by Poison.
Prior to the update, the Poison Spear's icon looked just like a regular Spear with its tip being green.
Hang Ten Like in every other case, crafting does not consider durability of an item, making a 1% Spear just as good as a 100% one, effectively letting the player use a spear almost twice as long.
