The Pew-matic Horn attacking Target Dummies. Note how the damage varies depending on the projectile being fired.

The Pew-matic Horn is a pre-Hardmode gun that converts bullets into randomized items fired as projectiles. These projectiles fly in an arc, quickly lose their horizontal speed once shot, are heavily affected by gravity, and dissipate upon contact with an enemy or surface. The damage each bullet will deal changes depending on the visual appearance of the projectile being fired. The type of bullet used does not change the projectiles fired by this weapon. The Pew-matic Horn has a 1/4 (25%) chance of being dropped by Deerclops.

Its best modifier is Unreal.


  • The following items can be fired by this gun:
List of items fired
Item fired Damage
  • The damage dealt by the projectile is roughly correlated to the weight those items would have in real life: heavier items, such as Stone Blocks, will deal more damage than lighter items, such as herbs.
  • Possessing the items listed above inside the inventory is not required to fire the weapon. The Pew-matic Horn only consumes bullets.


  • Since special bullet types do not grant it any additional effect, this weapon is best used with Musket Balls or an Endless Musket Pouch. However, it does inherit the base damage of the bullets used, which can be decently powerful with its damage multiplier ability.


  • Some of the projectiles it fires (such as Deathweed) do not resemble their current sprites, though (very unlikely) might be possible resprites in a future update.
  • The Pew-matic Horn's behavior is a reference to its original appearance in Don't Starve: Hamlet, in which it can be loaded with any item to be used as ammunition.
  • The tooltip is a reference to WX-78's examination quote for the Pew-matic Horn in Don't Starve.
