The Clockwork Assault Rifle is a Hardmode gun that fires in three-round bursts. It has a 16.67% chance to be dropped by the Wall of Flesh. Only the first shot out of the three will consume ammunition. The attack button can be held for repeated fire. This weapon also deals no knockback.
Its best Modifier is Demonic.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Meteor Shot has reduced effectiveness with this weapon, as only the first, and sometimes the second, shot of the three-round burst will hit.
- The Clockwork Assault Rifle fires three shots, each one with a delay of 4 frames, for a total of 12 frames. The delay between one burst and the next is 14 frames. One complete use of the weapon (including the delay) takes 26 frames.
- On the Mobile version, each round of bullets will all go in the same direction instead of spreading outwards, making it look and function as if the gun shoots incredibly fast.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- This weapon's high rate of fire and low ammo consumption make it ideal for crowd control. These same strengths also make it effective against Bosses, especially for some of the Mechanical Bosses as well.
- When using Cursed Bullets as ammo, the player can demolish Plantera and even Golem with as poor as Hallowed armor.
- This weapon's low ammo consumption makes it ideal for people who use expensive ammo, even well into the late-game.
- Having the Rapid modifier will greatly increase its fire rate, making it fire faster than the Minishark and doing as much DPS as the Megashark.
