Animation of the Phoenix Blaster.

The Phoenix Blaster is a type of gun, and essentially acts as an upgraded Handgun, featuring increased bullet damage and velocity but slightly less knockback than its predecessor. It is third only to the Musket and Star Cannon and tied with the Quad-Barrel ShotgunDesktop Version for base damage among guns available prior to Hardmode, but with more than triple the rate of fire of the Musket. However, it cannot be autofired.

Its best modifier is Unreal.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Phoenix Blaster is useful into early-mid Hardmode, outclassing many early-Hardmode weapons.
    • With reasonably rapid manual clicks/taps, the Phoenix Blaster can eclipse the Minishark in damage rate.
  • The Phoenix Blaster is highly effective against the Wall of Flesh due to its high base damage and fire power.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Phoenix Blaster is modeled after the Colt M1911 pistol.
  • It appears to have a flashlight/laser "under-barrel" attachment under its barrel, although it is unusable.
