The Wasp Gun is a Hardmode, post-Plantera magic weapon that fires 2-6 homing wasp projectiles that ricochet off surfaces, and the wasps home in on nearby enemies and deal damage to them. It has a 14.29% chance to be dropped by Plantera. It is essentially an upgraded Hardmode version of the Bee Gun. The wasps deal no knockback.
Its best Modifier is Demonic.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The projectiles will dissipate upon contact with water and lava, but not honey.
- The wasps are not affected by the Hive Pack in any way. This is most likely because they are wasps, and the Hive Pack only affects bees.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- May not be very effective against Hardmode enemies due to the low per-wasp damage and high enemy defense, even though the gun is dropped by Plantera. This can be especially apparent when attempting to trigger the Spectre armor set bonus, which requires a minimum 5 damage per hit to activate.
- Because of that (and the fact that the wasps pierce, triggering enemy invincibility) it's useful to not spawn too many of them and switch to a different weapon after casting some.
