The Speed Blaster is a craftable Hardmode ranged weapon that acts as a direct upgrade to the vanilla Paintball Gun. It fires in rapid bursts of six paintballs, and like the Paintball Gun, it does NOT consume ammo, making it a very reliable weapon. Its high damage potential is somewhat offset by the high bullet drop and relatively low projectile velocity.
Its best modifier is Unreal.
- The Calamity Mod allows the Painter to sell the Paintball Gun, allowing the player to obtain the weapon without having to kill the NPC.
- Having the cursor extremely close to the character will slightly slow down the velocity of the shots.
- Though lacking any piercing ability, the extraordinary damage output makes the Speed Blaster very effective against individual enemies with very high health.
