Portal Gun Glitch?[edit source]

I was playing with the portal gun and noticed something rather odd. I had a stopwatch in my inventory (which displays current speed) and was trying to achieve the highest possible speed. I shot a portal beneath a floating island, put a portal on the ground beneath and then began using the loop. I noticed something very intriguing. While going through I would achieve two different top speeds. Either 51 mph or 172 mph. Huge difference. I then started playing with it. I noticed that if I tapped spacebar while falling, I would begin slowing down about a second or less later. Down to 51 mph. I thought this was odd, but it got weirder. As i was flying away, I decided to hold (select as my current item) my portal gun. While I was gliding with my Fishron wings, I began descending much faster than normal, eventually reaching 72 mph. If I select a different item, my gliding goes back to normal. Is this just a glitch with me?

Below is a GIF of my falling. The speedometer can be seen on the right of the screen:

This is a GIF which shows my difference in falling speed: Without Portal Gun in hand: With Portal Gun in hand (had to go a little higher to show how fast I picked up speed): 23:36, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

The Portal gun will increase your falling speed if its selected; this is to make more portal-momentum shenanigans possible. However, the first one does seem kind of odd, so if you can replicate it while keeping the fall speed increase in mind, you might want to report it at the forum. –KM100 (talk) 00:16, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Momemtum is incorrect[edit source]

The word momemtum is not correct in this context (yes, I'm aware, that it is said by portal, but it's wrong). It should instead say speed. Momemtum is a combination of speed and direction, but the direction is lost with most portals!

here is a good video, to explain it:

Wouldn't that be awesome — Preceding unsigned comment added by MineStine606896 (talkcontribs) at 23:24, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Please add portal guns in terraria 1.3 mobile — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 10:05, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

Interaction with Frozen Slime Blocks[edit source]

So, I'm pretty sure that Frozen Slime Blocks actually preserve horizontal momentum perfectly when you have the portal gun. I've been able to glide around at 178 mph. Now I'm not sure where to put it, though. On the page about Frozen Slime Blocks or the Portal Gun? 'cause the Frozen Slime Blocks page says that high speeds are not maintained which is untrue if the Portal Gun is used. Nixitur (talk) 03:21, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

Differing colors in Multiplayer[edit source]

It doesn't list how many colors are available in Multiplayer mode for the Portal gun, nor lists them. Should this be added? -- 23:04, 26 October 2019 (UTC)
