The Red Ryder is a gun obtained by opening Presents during Christmas. It is similar to the Musket, although it does less damage. Its low speed and damage make it a very low-tier gun. However, it can potentially be obtained very early in the game, is better than most early-game bows, and it fulfills the criteria for the Arms Dealer to move in, making it an exceptional starting weapon.

Its best modifier is Unreal.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It is a reference to the Red Ryder BB gun. The gun is also referenced in the 1983 American Christmas comedy film A Christmas Story, hence the tooltip, which refers to a phrase often shouted in the story: "You'll shoot your eye out!"
  • The Red Ryder is one of only two guns in Terraria to share its name with a real firearm, the other being the Uzi.
