Animation of the Chain Gun.

The Chain Gun is a Hardmode, post-Plantera Gun, and is currently the fastest gun to-date. It has a 50% chance of not consuming Ammunition, but fires in random directions over a wide spread, similar to the Gatligator. It is dropped semi-rarely (5.55%-12.5% / 12.5% - 50% chance) by Santa-NK1 during the Frost Moon event.

Its best Modifier is Rapid. However, Godly may be preferred to save ammo.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Chlorophyte Bullets pair well with the Chain Gun, as their homing ability negates the gun's singular weakness of accuracy.
    • Note that it may cause framerate drops on low-end computers, due to its streak effect.
  • Crystal Bullets also can deal large amounts of damage to larger, stationary enemies and bosses such as the Golem.
  • When forged with the Rapid or Frenzying prefix, the Chain Gun will gain 25% speed. This happens due to rounding down its already insane shooting speed (4 to 3). The Godly prefix is better for players preferring to save ammo, at the cost of slightly less damage. DPS for Godly: DPS=(36+bullet-roundup(def/2))*60/4*1.09. The DPS for Rapid: DPS=(31+bullet-roundup(def/2))*60/3*1.04.
  • Console VersionMobile version This weapon may be a good option for damaging enemies very quickly to trigger abilities like the Nebula Armor's.
  • Because of its absurd rate of fire, the Endless Musket Pouch should be used in regular combat to save your more valuable shots for boss fights.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The gun appears to be a smaller version of Santa-NK1's arm.
  • A Chain Gun with Rapid or Frenzying as a prefix will have a use time of 3, which is the fastest of any ranged weapon in the game. The S.D.M.G. does more damage yet fires slightly slower.
  • The Chain Gun fires 3 more bullets per second than the S.D.M.G. with no speed modifiers.
  • A Chain Gun fires 15 bullets/second which translates to 900 bullets/minute.
