(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) The Uzi being used on Target Dummies.

The Uzi is a Hardmode gun that fires bullets at high velocity, with a high rate of fire, and with high damage output. Musket Balls and Tungsten Bullets(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) (as well as Silver Bullets on Old-gen console version Old-gen console and 3DSNintendo 3DS version) shot from this weapon are converted into High Velocity Bullets. They gain the increased speed, (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) ability to pierce targets (along with the damage reduction on subsequent hits), and visual appearance of High Velocity Bullets, but retain their original damage. The Uzi has a (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 1/100 (1%) / (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) 1/200 (0.5%) chance of being dropped by Angry Trappers.

Its best modifier is Unreal.


  • The Venus Magnum can be considered a direct upgrade of the Uzi, as it boasts minor improvements to almost all stats. However, on the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version the Venus Magnum does not have the auto-fire feature of the Uzi, the lack of which can make it physically tiring to use.


  • One would need to defeat (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 230 / (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) 460 Angry Trappers for a 90% chance of obtaining an Uzi (or (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 460 / (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) 920 for a 99% chance).
  • The Uzi can be considered an alternative to the Megashark, if the player is fortunate enough to have an Angry Trapper drop it. The main differences are:
    • The Uzi is obtainable before defeating any Hardmode bosses, while the Megashark requires The Destroyer to be defeated first.
    • The Uzi has a 172% higher base knockback/second than the Megashark (23.333 versus 8.571).
    • The Uzi is slightly slower but deals more damage per round. On enemies with more than 36 defense, the Uzi deals more damage per second using Crystal Bullets than a Megashark using the same.
    • The Uzi lacks the Megashark's ammo conservation feature, which can easily be compensated for with an Endless Musket Pouch(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions). The bullets will still be released from the gun as High Velocity Bullets.
    • (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) The Uzi is much cheaper to reforge, making it less expensive to acquire the Unreal modifier.
    • The Uzi compared to the Megashark is fairly inaccurate, with up to 15° of bullet spread.


  • The Uzi is one of the 11 guns in Terraria based on a real gun, the others being the Chain Gun, Flintlock Pistol, Handgun, Musket, Quad-Barrel Shotgun(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions), Red Ryder(Desktop, Console, Old-gen console and Mobile versions), Revolver(Desktop, Console, Old-gen console and Mobile versions), Shotgun, Sniper Rifle, and Tactical Shotgun. It is named after the Uzi, a family of Israeli submachine guns.
    • Out of these, the Uzi and Red Ryder are the only two to use the trademarks of the guns they are referencing.
  • Upon its introduction in the 1.2 update, the Uzi was the rarest item in the game, with a 1/80000 (0.00125%) drop chance. However, this drop rate was drastically increased in the patch shortly afterward.
  • The Sniper Rifle, Uzi, and Venus Magnum all share the same tooltip.
    • Uniquely out of these three, only the Uzi can be obtained prior to defeating any mechanical bosses (the other two are post-Plantera, which in turn requires defeating all three mechanical bosses), allowing the player to use High Velocity Bullets before they are properly craftable.
