The Space Gun in action.

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 pierce up to two enemies, and emits moderate light for its entire flight.

A full set of Meteor armor has the unique effect of making the Space Gun cost no mana to fire.

It is crafted by combining 20 Meteorite Bars (60 Meteorite) at an Anvil. A full set of Meteor armor and the Space Gun cost a total of 65 Meteorite Bars to craft (195 Meteorite).

Its best modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite being called a "gun", the Space Gun is a magic weapon and will not cause Arms Dealer to spawn.

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 have enough defense or health to brush off the attack.
  • 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.
