Metal Splinters is a monster-only spell which blasts you with a cloud of shrapnel, dealing heavy ranged physical damage. Unlike most monstrous breath attacks, this does not function like a Bolt spell; it can only affect the first target it strikes.

The following monsters can always cast Metal Splinters:

E Iron elemental.png Iron elemental- 3d27

9 War gargoyle.png War gargoyle- 3d27

D Iron dragon.png Iron dragon- 3d30

D Serpent of Hell.png Serpent of Hell- 3d32 (Dis only)

The following monster may be able to cast Metal Splinters, depending on its spell set:

& Pandemonium lord.png Pandemonium lord- Varies


In very early, pre-DCSS versions of Crawl, this was a player-castable level 8 pure Conjurations spell (though the name was then Throw Splinters). Notably, it was a penetrating bolt, dealt pure physical damage, and bypassed enemy evasion. It was replaced in Crawl 2.7 with Lehudib's Crystal Spear.
