Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Mobile only.png Sometimes the Phoenix Blaster can be found in chests in, or very close to, the Underworld or in the Dungeon (must open with Golden Key).

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Phoenix Blaster is useful up to early- to mid-Hardmode, outclassing many early-Hardmode weapons.
  • Though it lacks the Minishark's auto-fire, with reasonably rapid manual clicks the Phoenix Blaster generally eclipses the Minishark in damage rate.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The sprite is a molten version of the Handgun with an attachment below the front of the gun. The attachment seems to be a flashlight or laser sight, however this is purely aesthetic.
