The Venus Magnum in use.

The Venus Magnum is a Hardmode, post-Plantera gun that converts 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) fired from it 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 Venus Magnum has a (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 1/7 (14.29%) or (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) 1/6 (16.67%) chance of being dropped by Plantera.

Its best modifier is Unreal.


  • The Venus Magnum is a direct upgrade of the Uzi, as it also converts Musket Balls and Tungsten Bullets into High Velocity Bullets, and has slightly better stats across the board.
    • (Old-gen console version) In the Old-gen console version, the Venus Magnum cannot autofire, which means the Uzi has at least one advantage over it.


  • In appearance, the Venus Magnum seems to resemble The Undertaker, but with a laser sight and different colors.
  • The Sniper Rifle, Uzi, and Venus Magnum all share a tooltip.
  • In real life, magnum refers to a class of firearm cartridges that are known for having much more power than their projectile size would normally suggest, such as the .357 Magnum (from which the term is derived), .44 Magnum, .460 S&W Magnum, and .500 S&W Magnum for handguns, as well as .300 Winchester Magnum and .338 Lapua Magnum for rifles (among others), all much more powerful than their standard counterparts.
