The Zapinator was a weapon that was accidentally left in the game when it was released, but was taken out in a subsequent update. It resembled an NES-era light gun and shot very rapidly, dealing 50 damage per hit - around 500 damage a second. This was a weapon that Terraria's creators used during testing without worrying about enemies. It can be obtained by defeating plantera in the 3DS version.
- In terms of damage per hit, most Hardmode weapons do more damage.
- The Zapinator's name and sprite resemble the Nintendo Zapper; A light gun peripheral accessory released with the NES.
- The Zapinator's projectile ID was 20 (the projectile fired by the Space Gun.)
