  • Meteor Shot is the lowest velocity bullet in the game. Using them with The Undertaker along with a velocity-decreasing modifier, like Lethargic, will result in the slowest bullet velocity in the game. Shooting it through Honey will make the bullet travel incredibly slow; about 2 times slower than a Wooden Bow with Wooden Arrows in the air.
  • Meteor Shots are useful for locating Floating Islands, since it will bounce off them when fired straight into the air.
  • Meteor Shots are suitable for PvP, with enough skill it is possible to hit an enemy which is not normally reachable with a straight line.
  • Using a Chain Gun with Meteor Shots in an enclosed space may be very useful in cases where there are hordes of fast-moving enemies because the high fire rate of the Chain Gun + plenty of surfaces to bounce off of will create a nearly-impossible-to-escape shower of bullets to engulf the horde.
