The Uzi is a gun with a high rate of fire and a high damage output. Musket Balls and Silver Bullets shot from this weapon gain the effects (but not damage) of High Velocity Bullets. It has a 0.5% chance to drop from the Angry Trapper.
- The Uzi can prove to be a good substitute for a Megashark, given its comparable stats and its cheap reforging cost.
- In comparison to the Megashark, it is just about on par in terms of damage per second. Comparing unmodified weapons and excluding bullet damage, the Uzi does 210 damage in the time it takes for the Megashark to do 207 (These comparisons assume that every single bullet makes contact, which is a stretch unless you use Chlorophyte Bullets or your aim is that good). Comparing both weapons with the Unreal Modifier (the best for both weapons), the Uzi does 204 damage in the time it takes for the Megashark to do 208. The Megashark takes the edge in DPS after a speed boost because the speed bonus is greater on the Megashark (a 14% increase) than it is on the Uzi (11%), at least with any modifier that increases speed; all the while, the damage bonus remains the same at 13% for both.
- While the Uzi lacks the ammo conservation of the Megashark, what it does have is a good amount of knockback, which can be taken advantage of.
- Before 126.96.36.199, The Uzi's Drop rate was 1/80000 (This wasn't intended)
The UZI is the only gun in Terraria that uses the name of a specific real life gun.
