The Slag Magnum is a Hardmode gun that is dropped by Earth Elementals. It fires a special bullet that inflicts the Armor Crunch debuff on targets for a short time, which reduces their defense by 66.67%, and splits into 4 small shards on impact which deal 35% of the original bullets damage.

Its best modifier is Unreal.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Because of the high armor reduction, it is much more effective on enemies with high defense. This means it can be quite potent as a support weapon throughout the entire rest of the game.
  • Due to how early it is available and its powerful effect, it is an excellent weapon against the Mechanical Bosses.
  • Its effect is very similar to Crystal Bullets, making it an excellent crowd control tool.
  • Because it fires a special projectile, it is unaffected by bullet types. It is advised to focus on bullets that deal higher amounts of damage over bullets that have special effects as the weapon will not be affected by them.
