The Zapinator枪 is a 困难模式 magic weapon that is only available on the . 版 It resembles an NES-era light gun and shoots very rapidly, dealing 50 damage per hit - around 500 damage per second. It has a ~1.25% chance of being dropped from 世纪之花, but it is unknown what the droprate is exactly.
Its best 修饰语 is 精湛 (benefiting from reduced 魔力 cost) or 神级 (benefiting from increased crit chance and 击退).
- Because the Zapinator consumes lots of mana when fired rapidly, a 魔力花 and 远古钴盔甲 could be useful for any mage characters.
- The Zapinator was used by the developers in the 电脑版 to test certain content prior to 泰拉瑞亚's official release, used to kill enemies instantly so they wouldn't be interrupted during testing. It was originally released on the 电脑版, but was removed in the 1.0.1 update. At the time it was essentially the most powerful weapon in the game, though since update 1.1 and the release of 困难模式, this has ceased to be true.
- The Zapinator's name and sprite resemble the Nintendo Zapper, a light gun peripheral accessory released with the NES. This could explain why the Zapinator was removed from Terraria's Desktop version, as it could cause copyright problems between the development crew of Terraria & Nintendo. This might also explain why it was subsequently re-added to the 3DS version - there would be no conflict with Nintendo for this instance.
- The Zapinator's projectile ID is 20 (the projectile fired by the 太空枪.)
- 3DS 1.01：Name changed from ITEMNAME to Zapinator.
- 3DS 1.0：Introduced as ITEMNAME.
