The Marnite Bayonet is a craftable Pre-Hardmode gun that can be considered an earlier alternative to the Musket or The Undertaker. Upon use, it auto-fires bullets at an average rate. The gun itself also deals contact damage to enemies, a unique property for a ranged weapon that it shares with the Flak Kraken, Helstorm and Hellborn.
Though it requires the player to find Granite and Marble caves, its relatively low cost and decent rate of fire make the Marnite Bayonet an excellent gun for newer players. However, its low DPS renders it obsolete very early in the game.
Its best modifier is Unreal.

- As the gun's hitbox does not change based on aim, it will not always hit enemies that pass through the sprite.
- When dealing contact damage with the gun itself, the base damage is the same and the damage type is still Ranged.
- Marnite is a portmanteau of the words marble and granite, which is what the weapon is made of.
- This weapon was previously named the Marnite Rifle Spear. This was changed to avoid confusion with the Marnite Spear.
