The Zapinator is a weapon that is currently only available on the 3DS version. It resembles an NES-era light gun and shoots very rapidly, dealing 50 damage per hit - around 500 damage per second. It can be obtained by defeating Plantera, although its exact drop rate is unknown.

Its best Modifier is Godly. Because the weapon already has a low Mana cost, it is unable to receive any modifiers that can lower its Mana cost any further.
