The Wasp Gun is a magic weapon dropped by Plantera. It is an upgraded version of the Bee Gun, dropped by the Queen Bee. It fires a 2 to 5 Wasps (5 being least likely) with each shot that fly out and lock on to targets. The stingers they shoot will do constant damage to the enemy until it dies. Each wasp will only last a certain amount of time or disappear after bouncing off walls 3 times, and will continue searching for monsters until its time runs out.
This weapon may prove to be extremely effective since it stunlocks any enemy it damages, slowing down bigger foes and, for example, prevents the Paladin from throwing his hammer or the Pirate Captain from firing his cannon.
As the Wasp Gun has no knockback, it is impossible to reforge it to prefixes with knockback modifier such as Mythical and Godly.
Just like the Bee Gun, the wasps launched from Wasp Gun are destroyed up touching the water, making it useless in the water.
