Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Sniper 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 Sniper Scope can be used simultaneously with any gun.
    • The Sniper Scope's zoom stacks with that of the Sniper Rifle.
  • The Sniper Scope actually has a higher ranged critical hit bonus than the Destroyer Emblem.

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 Sniper 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.
