The Space Gun is a ranged Magic Weapon that auto-fires very quick green-colored lasers instead of bullets (the lasers travel faster than bullets, requiring less "lead" aim to targets). It consumes 8 Mana per shot, and can be fired repeatedly by holding down the attack button. The lasers give off light which can be handy to help illuminate dark places, and can pierce several (up to two) enemies, making it good against small crowds (so even though the damage may be less than other ranged weapons, the multiple-piercing-hits is a sort of multiplier).
A full set of Meteor Armor has the unique effect of making the Space Gun cost no mana to fire.
- With full Meteor armor, the Space Gun deals 23 damage and costs 0 mana.
- As the Space Gun is a magic weapon and not a ranged weapon; it doesn´t fulfill the criteria for the Arms Dealer to spawn and move in.
- The Space Gun on the mobile version (includes PS Vita) costs a Flintlock Pistol and 10 Stars instead of 2 to craft.
