The Musket is usually the first Gun obtainable by the player in a Corruption world. It does 25 damage and fires bullets. While guns such as the Flintlock Pistol and Minishark may do more damage per second, they use considerably more bullets, so using the Musket is advised until ammunition can be more reliably obtained.

Muskets are only found by smashing Shadow Orbs, which will also yield between 25 and 50 Musket Balls. The first smashed Shadow Orb in a world will always produce a Musket. Finding the Musket is usually the easiest way to spawn the Arms Dealer.

After smashing two shadow orbs, it is possible for both only to give one musket, so don't be disappointed if this happens. If this happens, it is recommended to sell one (preferably the one with the worse prefix).

In spite of its very slow speed, the Musket is a fairly powerful weapon. The high damage means that it can kill many weaker enemies in 2-3 shots, making it more ammo-efficient than most other early and mid-game guns. The Musket isn't useful in crowded settings, however, as the weapon won't fire quickly enough to keep multiple enemies at bay. It also emits light while shooting. It seems critical strikes are more often when shooting an enemy in the head.
