The Handgun is a ranged weapon that is obtained from Chests found in the dungeon. It is much faster than the Musket, which is usually obtained before it.

Like all guns, it shoots Musket Balls, Silver Bullets, Meteor Shots, Cursed Bullets, and Crystal Bullets. It can be combined with 10 Hellstone Bars to make a more powerful gun called the Phoenix Blaster which is does more damage.


  • The handgun resembles a Colt M1911.
