The Sock Puppet Staff is a Hardmode summon weapon that drops from Treasure Bags when opened in Hardmode. It summons a sock puppet to fight for the player. The minion attacks by casting lasers that Golem shoots at enemies while keeping it distance away from the enemies.
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 Sock Puppet Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
