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 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 Console only.pngTitan armor, the resultant bonus will be 78% less ammo consumption (3842 shots on average).
  • Using an Pc only.pngEndless Musket Pouch renders the ammo usage reduction useless, which allows one to wear other armors in favor of different bonuses.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

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