The Super Star Shooter being used against Target Dummies.

The Super Star Shooter is a Hardmode ranged weapon that, as a direct upgrade to the Star Cannon, consumes Fallen Stars as ammunition by firing them in a straight line. The star projectiles are unaffected by gravity, pierce an unlimited number of enemies, and summon bright white streaks of light which slash into damaged enemies, dealing an additional 75% of the weapon's damage (45 base damage).[1] Star projectiles dissipate into light-emitting particles upon impacting a solid block or after traveling for one minute.

Its best modifier is Unreal.
