The Clockwork Assault Rifle is a ranged weapon that shoots in three-round bursts, and has a rather high damage rate. It is a drop from the Wall of Flesh.

Even though the Clockwork Assault Rifle only deals a base damage of 19, it can be a very powerful weapon, as it technically deals 57 damage + the damage of the bullet used multiplied by 3. This is due to the fact that it fires in 3 round bursts and consumes just one bullet.

  • The bullets fired from this rifle appear to be smaller than the bullets fired from other guns.
  • The Clockwork Assault Rifle is highly recommended for hardmode bosses, such as The Twins because it has high speed, it deals decent damage and it has a three round burst. Also, you don't need to kill any hardmode bosses to obtain it.


  • The item's sprite appears to be reminiscent of the Steampunk art style. The item name, Clockwork Assault Rifle, is also similar.
