The Candy Corn Rifle being used. Note the ricocheting ability of the projectiles.

The Candy Corn Rifle is a Hardmode post-Plantera gun that auto-fires Candy Corn as ammunition. It is dropped rarely (1.79–14.29% chance) by the Pumpking during the Pumpkin Moon event. Candy Corn drops along with the weapon, and can be purchased from the Arms Dealer when a Candy Corn Rifle is in the player's inventory.

Candy Corn shots pierce up to two enemies and ricochet up to four times, dissipating on their fifth impact or third enemy hit. The gun has a high fire rate, but unlike most guns, its projectiles are affected by gravity and do not remain airborne for long, though their ricochet ability helps them gain distance.

The Candy Corn Rifle has a base 10% critical strike chance as opposed to the usual 4%. Furthermore, it has a 33.33*1/3 (33.33%) chance not to consume ammo.

Its best modifier is Unreal.



  • This weapon appears to be based off of the Mauser C96, a real-life pistol used during World War I and II, with candy corns attached to the top and on the magazine.
