How to craft a Star Cannon in Terraria

Perhaps the most important drawback of Star Cannon is the crafting process. To create a star cannon in Terraria, the player will need the following:

  • Anvil as a crafting place.
  • Minishark. This is an automatic weapon that has a very high rate of fire (plus 33% to avoid wasting ammo when fired). Bought from a weapon dealer for 35 gold coins. He will appear in your house after you destroy a shadow orb.
  • 20 pieces of meteorite ingots. One ingot is created from three meteorite ore. This ore is mined from a fallen meteorite.
  • 5 pieces of fallen stars. They can be collected at night on the surface. They will be also needed for a mana flower.

After crafting, the player will get one of the modifications that can be changed later, depending on the class you will choose. It should be noted that the mini-shark’s 33% chance of saving ammo when fired does not apply to the star cannon.
