- Internal Item ID: 1265
The Uzi is a Hardmode gun that fires bullets at high velocity, with a high rate of fire, and with high damage output. Musket Balls and Silver/Tungsten Bullets shot from this weapon gain the effects (but not damage) of High Velocity Bullets. The Uzi has a
1*1/100 (1%) / 0.5*1/200 (0.5%) chance to drop from an Angry Trapper.
Its best modifier is Unreal.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Venus Magnum can be considered a direct upgrade of the Uzi, as it boasts minor improvements to almost all stats. However, only on the Mobile version and version does the Venus Magnum have the auto-fire feature of the Uzi, the lack of which can make it physically tiring to use.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Because Musket Balls fired from the Uzi are turned into High Velocity Bullets, they can pierce, hitting up to 3 enemies with a 15% drop in damage between each enemy.
- One would need to defeat 230 / 460 Angry Trappers for a 90% chance of obtaining an Uzi (or 460 / 920 for a 99% chance).
- The Uzi can be considered an alternative to the Megashark, if the player is fortunate enough to have an Angry Trapper drop it. The main differences are:
- The Uzi is obtainable before defeating any Hardmode bosses, while the Megashark requires The Destroyer to be defeated first.
- The Uzi has a 172% higher base knockback/second than the Megashark (23.333 versus 8.571).
- The Uzi is slightly slower but deals more damage per round. On enemies with more than 36 defense, the Uzi deals more damage per second using Crystal Bullets than a Megashark using the same.
- The Uzi lacks the Megashark's ammo conservation feature, which can easily be compensated for with an Endless Musket Pouch. The bullets will still be released from the gun as High Velocity Bullets.
- The Uzi is much cheaper to reforge, making it less expensive to acquire the Unreal modifier.
- The Uzi compared to the Megashark is fairly inaccurate, with up to 15° of bullet spread.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Uzi is one of only eleven guns in Terraria based on a real gun, the others being the Red Ryder, Shotgun, Sniper Rifle, Handgun, Chain Gun, Flintlock Pistol, Tactical Shotgun, Musket, Quad-Barrel Shotgun, and Revolver. It is named after Uzi, a family of Israeli submachine guns.
- In the 1.2 update, the Uzi was the rarest item in the game, with a
0.00125*1/80000 (0.00125%) drop chance. However, this drop rate was drastically increased in the 18.104.22.168 patch shortly afterward.
- The Sniper Rifle, Uzi, and Venus Magnum all share the same tooltip.
