The Space Gun in action.

The Space Gun is a magic weapon which autofires quick green-colored lasers. Its projectile velocity is as fast as the Megashark. Each laser can hit up to three enemies, and emits moderate light as it moves.

If a full set of Meteor armor is equipped, the Space Gun costs no mana.

It is crafted by combining 20 Meteorite Bars (60 Meteorite) at an Anvil. A full set of Meteor armor and the Space Gun cost a total of 65 Meteorite Bars to craft (195 Meteorite).

Its best modifier is Mythical.

Tips[]

  • The Space Gun can pierce two enemies at a time, which makes it quite useful in the pre-Hardmode Dungeon, because of the large quantity of grouped enemies found there.
  • Its usefulness soon diminishes after reaching Hardmode, as most enemies are too tough to the extent it becomes ineffective.
  • The Furious, Taboo, Intense, Ignorant, and Inept modifiers will not have any negative effects on mana while the set bonus of Meteor armor is in effect.
  • The Space Gun is highly useful for defeating the Wall of Flesh as the lasers can penetrate through The Hungry and have a much better chance at hitting the eyes or mouth. This, paired with Meteor armor, can be one of the easiest ways to defeat it.
  • With Meteor Armor, the Space Gun does not take mana to cast. This can be utilized to buy time for mana to regenerate.

Trivia[]

  • Despite being called a "gun", the Space Gun is a magic weapon.
  • The Space Gun appears to be based on a raygun.
