The 玛瑙爆破枪 is a 困难模式 远程武器 that is a direct upgrade to the 霰弹枪. It can be crafted before defeating any of the 机械 Boss.
Like the Shotgun, it fires a spread of 4 bullets, but it also fires a single dark energy projectile that explodes upon impact with an enemy or a block, or after traveling 36 tiles.
The explosive projectile does twice the listed damage of the weapon.
Its best 修饰语 is 虚幻.
- The Onyx Blaster is good for ranger players during early stages of Hardmode due to its availability and excellent crowd-control capabilities. The size of the dark energy blast makes it especially adept at hitting large targets.
- The Onyx Blaster is very easy to get, requiring a small amount of farming in a corrupt/crimson desert for shards, corruption/crimson caverns for souls, and a Shotgun, which can easily be purchased from the 军火商.
- A great combination with this weapon is to use ichor bullets because the bullets go in front of the dark energy blast, they lower the enemy defense and then explode, doing a great amount of damage.
- This weapon can take on mechanical bosses with comparable difficulty to the 巨兽鲨, however it has an explosive (also known as area of effect) blast. The dark shot will explode and deal damage to surrounding boss pieces. It is especially potent against 毁灭者.
- When paired with 水晶子弹s, the Onyx Blaster can shoot 13 projectiles (each bullet projectile will break into 3).
- The weapon is not only incredibly powerful for how early the player can acquire it, but also very versatile, with crowd control, velocity, and straight dps.
A close up of the onyx blast.
- Onyx is a mineral commonly found in America.
- Its counterparts are the 裂天剑 and the 太极连枷. All three of these weapons require two shards along with Souls of Light and/or Souls of Night. Together, these weapons represent the three primary damage types: melee, magic, and ranged.
- They also represent light, dark, and balance.
