- The bullets seem to not always align with the barrel of the gun when firing, resulting in a spread of shots.
- The Minishark, a main component in the crafting of the Megashark, is actually worth more gold than the upgraded gun.
- When combined with Chlorophyte Bullets, the Megashark can deal outstanding damage per second, making it almost ideal for most hardmode bosses.
- If the reduced 50% ammo consumption of this weapon is combined with a ranged bonus of 20% reduced ammo usage (such as the Necro Armor's, Shroomite Armor's or Ammo Box's), or with a 25% reduced ammo usage (such as the Hallowed Armor's or Adamantite Armor's), 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 Titan armor, the resultant bonus will be 78% less ammo consumption (3842 shots on average).
