The Charged Blaster Cannon is a Hardmode, post-Golem magic weapon that fires electric spheres. It has a 11.11% (1/9) chance to be dropped by the Martian Saucer during the Martian Madness event.

The Charged Blaster Cannon has three firing modes:

  • A single tap of fires a small non-piercing orb.
  • Holding and releasing it after one second fires a large orb with infinite piercing and increased damage.
  • Holding for more than three seconds fires a large, solid beam, continuously until the key is released, mana is depleted, or ~5 seconds have passed. The beam does even more damage (~175), has infinite piercing, and hits all enemies in its path repeatedly, about 5 times per second. The firing angle cannot be adjusted while the continuous beam is firing.

Its best Modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The fully charged beam's range is 300 tiles. The lesser spherical projectiles travel much farther.
  • The fully charged beam is comparable to the Last Prism's condensed super beam, but with a lot less damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item is a nod to the classic video game character Mega Man, who had a similarly-shaped cannon called a "Mega Buster". It could be similarly charged before firing, and the Charged Blaster Cannon's appearance as part of the player's arm when selected mimics the fact that Mega Man's robotic body had the gun built into his arm.
The Charged Blaster Cannon firing an uncharged shot, then a medium-charged shot, then a fully-charged shot.
