The Gauss Flinger is a non-consumable throwing weapon that can autofire. It is dropped by The Star Scouter. It throws energy dagger projectiles that are not affected by gravity, can pierce up to 2 enemies, and have a 1/2 (50%) chance to inflict the Light Curse debuff.

Like most non-consumable throwing weapons, using this weapon builds up an exhaustion meter that appears below the player. Not using the weapon will make the meter slowly go back down. However, if it becomes completely filled, the user will be inflicted with the Exhaustion debuff, causing all non-consumable throwing weapons to deal massively decreased damage for some time. The meter resets after the debuff ends.

Its best Modifier is Unreal.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • It emits a reasonable amount of light when in use, making it useful during exploration in caves or traveling the surface at night.
  • It is a viable weapon even in early Hardmode.
