By moving the missile over a breakable object, one may obtain the items inside without actually coming into contact with them.
This is, perhaps, a reference to Dungeons and Dragons in which magic missile is one of the lowest tier spells a wizard starts with.
The Magic Missile displays a particle effect similar to that of the Magic Mirror.
The Magic Missile caused every player to crash (except if the host uses it, he or she will not crash) on the console versions as of release.Console(Fixed)
Because the cursor can go anywhere on the screen, you can use it to access chests or interact with items from far away, even off the screen.
In the iOS and Android version of Terraria controlling the missile will continue to create more missiles at the expense of using more mana. This makes the missile an effective high-damage weapon. This bug applies the same for the Flamelash.
