The Nail Gun is a hardmode ranged weapon dropped by Nailhead during Solar Eclipses. It uses Nails as ammo which are sold by the Merchant or the Arms Dealer for 1 SilverCoin Small each, only when the player has the gun in his inventory. When a nail hits an enemy it sticks to it, dealing a small amount of damage. After roughly 2 seconds the nail explodes, dealing much more damage. The explosion does not damage the shooter.

After roughly 30 blocks, the nails begin to arc in a manner similar to arrows. The projectiles are considered rockets, so they will get bonuses from sets such as Shroomite Armor.
