The Plasma Rifle is a craftable post-Moon Lord magic gun. Using the left mouse button fires an explosive plasma blast, while using the right mouse button rapidly fires plasma-like bullets.
The Plasma Rifle also has a rare item variant called the Thunderstorm that drops from Cloud Elementals Post-Providence.
Its best modifier is Mythical.
- The primary fire has a fixed use time of 39 ticks, and the secondary fire has a fixed use time of 7 ticks; as a result, no modifier can increase or decrease the firing rate of the gun.
- The weapon's name, sprite and function are a reference to the weapon of the same name in Turok 2: Seeds of Evil.
- Despite saying "right click to change modes", the weapon's firing states are always linked to the right and left mouse, instead of left to fire and right to toggle back and forth.
