The Pulse Pistol is a craftable Pre-Hardmode magic gun. When used, it fires a pink gravity-defying pulse that disappears on tile impact. If the pulse hits a target, it is able to redirect to another target, and pierce up to two enemies before disappearing on the third. Additionally if the target is inorganic, 1/300 of the target's max health will be added to its damage. Unlike other magic guns, this weapon does not consume mana.
The weapon consumes 0.05 units of charge per use and has a maximum charge of 50.
Its best modifier is Demonic, as it does not have any knockback and thus cannot get modifiers that affect it.
- The Pulse Pistol was initially a ranged weapon in the trailer for the 1.4.5.001 update.
- The Pulse Pistol is a reference to the weapon of the same name from Fallout 2, and uses the same firing sound effect.
