The Rifle Scope is a Hardmode, post-Plantera accessory. It grants the ability to increase view range while holding a bullet-firing gun by pressing and holding Open / Activate and moving the cursor.

The Rifle Scope has a 8.33% / 12.5% (1/12 / 1/8) chance to drop from Skeleton Snipers in the post-Plantera Dungeon.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Rifle Scope only works with guns that fire bullets. It does neither work with other guns, e.g. the Dart Rifle, nor with other weapons with "gun" in their name, e.g. Piranha Gun or Rainbow Gun.
  • The zoom effect is identical to the that of the Binoculars or the Sniper Rifle, but the Rifle Scope can be used simultaneously with any gun.
    • The Rifle Scope's zoom stacks with that of the Sniper Rifle.
  • The Rifle Scope does not currently work on the 3DS version DS version when being run on an O3DS.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If zoomed in on a biome with different music than the one the player is in, the music will change upon zooming. Example: The player is standing in a Forest biome, zooms in on a Mushroom biome, the music changes to the Mushroom biome music.
    • If zoomed into an area affected by an area-buff item, the player will receive the buff even if they are not inside the radius. If they are inside the radius, zooming outside of the radius will cause the player to lose the buff. This applies to a Campfire, Heart Lantern, Star in a Bottle, and even banners.
  • Having a Rifle Scope equipped, even if not being zoomed out, drastically increases the enemy spawning rectangle. This can effectively break player-made farms that rely on knowledge of the normal spawning rectangle. The exact distance is unknown.
