The 激光步枪 is a 困难模式 魔法武器 that auto-fires blue lasers which penetrate up to two enemies and emit moderate light. It has a 16.67% chance to be dropped by the 血肉墙. Despite its name, it does not count as a gun, cannot receive 远程武器 modifiers, and will not fulfill the requirements for the 军火商 to move in. This weapon can be considered a direct upgrade of the 太空枪.
Its best 修饰语 is 神话.
- This is a fairly powerful weapon against 蠕虫 due to its penetration abilities and high fire rate, making good use of the time worms spend above ground, though the 巨兽鲨 with endgame 子弹 will have higher DPS (damage per second).
- This weapon is fairly 魔力-efficient.
- Effective against 毁灭者 and 双子魔眼.
- While it deals relatively low damage, its high fire rate can allow it to remain useful even until mid-Hardmode.
- A rifle is normally defined by its barrel being rifled, with helical grooves that cause the projectile to spin. However, this technicality was often ignored in pulp magazines, resulting in terms such as "laser rifle" or "plasma rifle" becoming part of popular culture.
