The Minishark is a machine gun purchased from the Arms Dealer for 35 . If the player has a lot of ammo for it, it can be very useful for taking out pre-hardmode bosses such as the Eye of Cthulhu, the Skeletron and the Eater of Worlds. While being effective in pre-hardmode, this weapon is almost obsolete in hardmode, as all enemies have a lot of defense and it is such a waste to use all the bullets against only a single enemy.
- When speaking with the Arms Dealer, he occasionally says "I see you're eyeballin' the Minishark... You really don't want to know how it was made."
- The Necro Armor's 20% chance to not consume ammo will stack with the Minishark's 33% chance, yielding a 55% chance that the player will not consume ammo. This means that roughly every second shot will not consume any ammo.
- Since the Minishark has 0 knockback, it is not possible to get Unreal prefix with Reforging; the best prefix for the Minishark is Demonic for damage and Murderous for overall stat increase.
- Like all machine guns, bullets fired from this weapon have a spread. This can be seen with any type of bullet.
- Receiving this weapon gives you the achievement "Completely Awesome."
- The name is likely a reference to the real-life minigun, which is known for having multiple barrels and very fast firerate.
