The Star Cannon is a rapid firing weapon that shoots Fallen Stars, making it difficult to collect ammunition for. Similar to the Thorn Chakram, the Star Cannon can be shot through walls that are 2 blocks thick, provided the player is standing against said wall. The Star Cannon has a range of 50 blocks, however, if the Fallen Star hits a Wood Platform it will vanish, unlike other types of ammo. It possesses one of the highest DPS (Damage Per second) ratings in the game prior to 1.2.

Notes

  • Using the Necro Armor or Shroomite Armor sets will provide a 20% chance not to consume ammo, and the Adamantite Armor set provides 25% chance. This may be necessary to keep from running out of ammo.
  • The shots will pierce a one block thick wall.
  • Since the Star Cannon has no knockback, it is impossible to reforge it with a knockback-increasing prefix (unreal, godly, superior, etc.) Because of this, the best prefix for this weapon is demonic.

Bugs

  • If you put a platform under a block and and shoot it with the star cannon, the projectile won't collide with the block.
