The Space Gun is a magic weapon that auto-fires 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.
Its best modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Despite being called a "gun", the Space Gun does not fulfill the criteria for the Arms Dealer to spawn.
- 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.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- The Space Gun can be very useful pre-Hardmode, but not as useful once you reach 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.
