The Space Gun is a magic weapon which autofires quick green-colored lasers. Its projectile velocity is as fast as the Megashark, which is faster than any pre-Hardmode bullet-firing gun. Each laser can hit up to three enemies, and emits moderate light as it moves.
Its best modifier is Mythical.

Tips[edit | edit source]
- The Space Gun can pierce two enemies at a time, which makes it quite useful in the pre-Hardmode Dungeon, because of the large quantity of grouped enemies found there.
- Its usefulness soon diminishes after reaching Hardmode, as most enemies are too tough to the extent it becomes ineffective.
- The Furious, Taboo, Intense, Ignorant, and Inept modifiers will not have any negative effects on mana while the set bonus of Meteor armor is in effect.
- The Space Gun is highly useful for defeating the Wall of Flesh as the lasers can penetrate through The Hungry and have a much better chance at hitting the eyes or mouth. This, paired with Meteor armor, can be one of the easiest ways to defeat it.
- With Meteor Armor, the Space Gun does not take mana to cast. This can be utilized to buy time for mana to regenerate.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Despite being called a "gun", the Space Gun is a magic weapon.
- During a Blood Moon, the Space Gun's projectiles are yellow rather than their normal green color, due to the general color changes a Blood Moon causes.
- The Space Gun appears to be based on a raygun.
