The Arms Dealer is an NPC that will move into a suitable house once the player has a firearm of any kind. The fastest way to get the arms dealer to move in to your home is to destroy a few Shadow Orbs or Pulsating Hearts. (which have a chance to drop a Musket and The Undertaker respectively)
The Arms Dealer is a vendor who primarily deals in ranged weapons and related items, such as ammunition. To this end, he sells a variety of guns (including the Minishark and Shotgun, which can be found nowhere else) in addition to basic ammunition.
He uses a Flintlock Pistol to defend himself. However, he upgrades it to a Minishark when Hard Mode begins. The Flintlock and Minishark deal the exact same damage, however the Minishark is significantly faster.

During a blood moon:
|Arms Dealer's Names|
- On the mobile versions where hard mode is disabled (yet), he will only say the sentence "I heard there is a doll that looks very similar to <Guide's name> somewhere in the underworld. I'd like to put a few rounds in it.", after Skeletron has been defeated, just like in the other versions, but probably due to the lack of hard mode, he will keep on saying this sentence, even when the Wall of Flesh is killed.
- The Arms Dealer wont spawn if you have the Flare Gun in your inventory even though it is a gun.
- In the leaked version, this skin was used for the Demolitionist.
- He seems to be infatuated with the nurse as seen in his quotes. As of 1.2.1 he also sells the Nurse Costume on Halloween. Why he has a costume of the nurse up for sale is currently unknown.
- In the mobile versions, which aren't yet upgraded to 1.2 but are still the same as the PC version 1.1, Illegal Gun Parts are still bought for the price of 75 and sold for 15 .
- In one of his quotes, he is referring to the Guide Voodoo Doll, telling it can be found in the underworld, and even saying he would like to 'put a few rounds in it'. Albeit there isn't any other reference between the Guide and the Arms Dealer, it is clear that the Arms Dealer doesn't like him.
- Now sells Nurse Costume during Halloween.

- Now sells Shotgun, Silver Bullets and Unholy Arrows after the Wall of Flesh is defeated.
