The Venus Magnum is a ranged weapon that was added in the 1.2 patch and is in functionality an updated Phoenix Blaster. It is dropped by the Hardmode boss Plantera. It is a formidable ranged weapon, especially with the best prefix (Unreal) and ammo tailored to specific combat situations, like Chlorophyte Bullets. This gun can fire nearly as fast as the Megashark, depending on how fast you can click the mouse button.
This gun is semi automatic which means that to fire you need to click every time. It also does not have any chance for decreased ammo consumption, which may make the Megashark or other machine-gun autofire weapons even more preferable.
