The Paintball Gun is a ranged weapon which has a 10% chance of being dropped from the Painter. It fires a three shot burst of slow-moving, arcing projectiles which consume no mana or ammunition, though it deals ranged damage.

Its best Modifier is Unreal.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Painter will use the Paintball Gun when defending himself.
    • Because the player cannot directly attack NPCs with normal weapons, Rotten Eggs or external damage sources such as traps are needed to kill them.
  • The Paintball Gun has a critical chance of 11%, as opposed to the usual 4%.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Though it is somewhat inaccurate at longer ranges, the respectable damage output, raised critical chance and complete lack of needing ammunition or mana makes the Paintball Gun a potent and reliable early game weapon.
  • This weapon can serve as a cheaper way of defeating the Dungeon Guardian, as it consumes no ammo.
