The Phoenix Shotgun is a Pre-Hardmode gun. It uses bullets as ammo and turns them into fireballs, shooting a spray of 5 fireballs.
- The fireballs the weapon shoots do not travel in the expected trajectories. If fired diagonally to the up left or bottom right, the fireballs will all fire in a narrow stream. It is a good idea to keep enemies within these angles in order to maximize damage.
- Fireballs explode on conact with tiles or enemies, making it useful for attacking through thin tile surfaces.
