The Gatling Laser is a craftable Hardmode magic gun. When used, the gun has a short load period before a barrage of fast but inaccurate red lasers are fired at a massively rapid rate. The laser creates a tiny explosion on hit, inflicts the On Fire! debuff, but its damage is reduced by 20% of the target's defense.
The weapon consumes 0.0075 units of charge for each frame the weapon is held (totaling 0.015 units of charge per use) and has a maximum charge of 135.

- The weapon itself also deals contact damage to enemies. This trait is shared with the Butcher, Dark Spark, Flak Kraken, Hellborn, Helstorm, Marnite Bayonet, Nano Purge, and T1000.
- The Gatling Laser is a reference to the weapon of the same name from the Fallout series, and uses the same firing sound effect.
