Tips[edit | edit source]

  • If the reduced 50% ammo consumption of this weapon is combined with a ranged bonus of 20% reduced ammo usage (such as the Necro Armors, Shroomite Armors or Ammo Boxes), or with a 25% reduced ammo usage (such as the Hallowed Armors or Adamantite Armors), the observed final bonus is multiplicative between the two, resulting in a 60% ammo reduction or 62.5% ammo reduction respectively (That means that a stack of 999 bullets will yield about 2498 and 2664 shots on average, respectively). In case it is used with the Console only.pngTitan armor, the resultant bonus will be 78% less ammo consumption (3842 shots on average).
  • Using an Pc only.png Endless Musket Pouch renders the ammo usage reduction useless, which allows one to wear other armors in favor of different bonuses.
  • Compared to the Gatligator and the Uzi, the Megashark is the most accurate and low use time gun, the Gatligator is very fast but has no accuracy whatsoever and can be rare at times, and the Uzi has high velocity bullets and a good amount of damage, but is slower and much more rare.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Minishark has a higher sell value than the Megashark, despite being weaker and an ingredient in its crafting recipe.
