I don't really think that gun ammo should go on this page, but ammo on a page by itself would be awfully small, maybe wasteful. Any thoughts? --RBrandon 00:38, 23 May 2011 (UTC)


I think gun ammo and arrows should be together on a page; maybe throw in fallen stars too. I might get to it. --Theothersteve7 18:51, 1 June 2011 (UTC)


The Space Gun is a Gun[edit source]

I see you put it back in. I put it in originally but later removed it. The main reason I removed it is the wide variety of pages and templates currently on the wiki labeling it as a "magic item" rather than a gun, so either those need changed or we can just be happy with this little inconsistency. I'm fine with it either way, it's not a big deal. --Theothersteve7 16:17, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

will therebe the first craftable gun thanks to 1.0.6?[edit source]

a small idea fr a gun that does a pretty decent ammount of dammage, you need two barrells, and 56 wood,and about 7 iron bars, and it will make a double barrell, not only does it have some decent dammage but you can chose 2 modes for it: wide whh shoots 3 bulets in different directions, and acurate, which makes the same ammount of bullets fly at your enemies, you can use any ammo for it including arrows and even stars (though stars arent recommended since it adds -1 dammage to anything equiped to it) and the modes dertermine its speed: wide = very fast. and acurate = slow speed, just a small idea since there is already barrells in the game, oh yeah: you need at least 1 alchemy station or an iron anvil to craft it. just a small idea i had for quite awhile now.

There are a number of things this wiki is not, which you don't seem to grasp. These things include "your blog" and "a place to post suggestions". If you want to post things nobody cares about, the official forums have an entire section dedicated to this type of thing. --Lunboks 22:03, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

Gun or not? (Bullets)[edit source]

So, this has been bugging me for a while now. If it doesn't use bullets, it's not a gun (and the Arms Dealer seems to agree). And yet, this page still lists stuff like the Blowpipe and the Space Gun. Can we agree that a gun is defined by its use of bullets, and remove those that don't? --ChroniclerC 02:34, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

It's not the lack of bullets that's the problem. It's the fact that it is not a ranged weapon at all. It has all the hallmarks of a Magic Weapon: it uses Mana and it gets its Modifiers from the Magical Weapon list, not the Ranged Weapon list. Indeed, even the Ranged Weapon list doesn't consider it a ranged weapon. Alfonse215 (talk) 12:36, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Proposal to split the page[edit source]

I believe in reclassifying guns as ranged weapons that shoot bullets and allow the Arms Dealer to spawn. There's already a template for Miscellaneous Ranged Weapons; guns that fire other ammo can go there, along with the Piranha Gun and Harpoon. A new Miscellaneous Ranged Weapons page would grant several benefits: categorizing the Harpoon once and for all, dealing with the fact that some of these weapons don't resemble guns in any way, and providing an excellent excuse to remove the Space Gun and Laser Rifle (magic weapons) from the list. A link at the bottom of this page to the proposed new page with a brief description would suffice. Thoughts? BattleLaf (talk) 21:40, 5 November 2013 (UTC) I'll agree but what about the Candy Corn Rifle? it seems to trigger item perks that only work for guns. Actually does anyone know if it allows the arms dealer to spawn? Its the only possible exception I could think of among the "miscellaneous" weapons here--Dragrath (talk) 15:50, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Removing non ranged weapons[edit source]

Would it acceptable to remove non ranged weapons from this page? The Space gun and Laser rifle are treated entirely as magic weapons(that latter being the WOF magic weapon) Can we agree they should not be listed on a ranged weapon page?--Dragrath (talk) 15:44, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

In my opinion it's currently fine. Although the article's main purpose is to list gun-type weapons, the second list is convenient in regard to preventing confusion and make item searching easier. If you want a list of ranged weapons without stuff like that there's always Ranged weapons. NoseOfCthulhu (talk) 22:33, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Nail Gun and Stake Launcher[edit source]

Shouldn't the Nail Gun and Stake Launcher be listed on this page?

Both of them receive bonuses from different classifications of ranged damage; the Nail Gun receives the same bonuses from Shroomite Armor that Launchers do, and the Stake Launcher is considered a Bow for the same purpose. Gearzein (talk) 23:09, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
