The Uzi is a powerful gun with a high firing rate and a 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 best modifier it can receive is Unreal.

[edit] Notes

  • The Uzi can prove to be a good substitute for a Megashark. The main differences are:
    • The Uzi has a much higher base Knockback/sec (20 versus 8.5) than the Megashark does. However, the Megashark does slightly more KBPS when using Exploding Bullets. This gap increases when the Megashark has a modifier which increases speed.
    • Using easily acquired ammunition, the Uzi deals more DPS than the Megashark against enemies with more than 11 and 15 defense (for Musket Balls and Silver Bullets , respectively.)
    • The Uzi exhausts ammo 75% faster than the Megashark. Using Silver Bullets, this equates to an extra 9 copper/sec (525/min) in ammo expenses. For recipes which require crafting with Empty Bullets, this equals an extra 45 pieces of material per minute.
  • If ammo usage is of no concern to the player, the Uzi can be a much more powerful weapon than the Megashark, and is especially good in PvP.
Bug.png Bug : Fired bullets do not properly align with the Uzi's barrel when aiming in certain directions.
Bug.png Bug : When the Uzi has the prefix "Powerful" its shots will appear from behind the player. (Further testing needed)

[edit] Trivia

  • The Uzi is the only specifically-named model of real-life firearm that exists in Terraria, excluding the Red Ryder, as it is in fact a BB gun, and not something to be carried into battle.

[edit] History

  • Drop rate of the Uzi corrected from 1/80000 to 1/200
  • 1.2: Introduced.
