The Laser Rifle being fired. Note how the shot passes through the first two enemies, but not the third.

The Laser Rifle is a Hardmode magic weapon that auto-fires blue lasers which penetrate up to two enemies and emit moderate light. It has a 16.67% chance to be dropped by the Wall of Flesh. Despite its name, it does not count as a gun, cannot receive ranged weapon modifiers, and will not fulfill the requirements for the Arms Dealer to move in. This weapon can be considered a direct upgrade of the Space Gun.

Its best Modifier is Mythical.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • This is a fairly powerful weapon against worms due to its penetration abilities and high fire rate, making good use of the time worms spend above ground, though the Megashark with endgame bullets will have higher DPS (damage per second).
  • This weapon is fairly mana-efficient.
  • Effective against The Destroyer and The Twins.
  • While it deals relatively low damage, its high fire rate can allow it to remain useful even until mid-Hardmode.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A rifle is normally defined by its barrel being rifled, with helical grooves that cause the projectile to spin. However, this technicality was often ignored in pulp magazines, resulting in terms such as "laser rifle" or "plasma rifle" becoming part of popular culture.
