The Star Cannon is a gun that fires Fallen Stars. Stars are launched from the cannon at 52.5 blocks (105 feet) per second and persist for exactly 1 minute after being launched, ultimately traveling 3150 blocks, or 6300 feet, and piercing through enemies along the way. After the star reaches this point, or when it impacts a solid block, it dissipates into light-emitting particles.

The Star Cannon cannot obtain modifiers that affect knockback.

Its best Modifier is Demonic.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In practice, the Star Cannon only does Desktop VersionConsole Version56 / Old-gen console versionMobile Version3DS version54 damage, as fired Fallen Stars have a damage value of -1.
  • The Star Cannon, given enough ammo, can do tremendous amounts of damage, and is by far the best pre - hardmode ranged weapon, in terms of DPS. The Star Cannon is still useful well into mid - hardmode, being better than the Megashark in base damage.
  • While the Star cannon can fire up through platforms, it counts the top of platforms as solid, making it unideal for the standard rows of platforms arena

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • A skybridge can be used to farm Fallen Stars efficiently.
  • The Star Cannon is a good weapon for boss fights and PvP. It is arguably the strongest pre-Hardmode ranged weapon, however its ammo being Fallen Stars hinders its overall practicality.
