Tips[]

  • At very close range the DPS of this weapon is comparable to that of the Minishark, though its inaccuracy causes it to fall off rapidly even at moderate range.
  • The projectiles fired by the Aqua Pelter emit a fair bit of blue light as they travel, making it useful for exploring the Aquatic Depths if you lack a Flare Gun or other waterproof source of light.
  • The Aqua Pelter is best used in low-risk situations where you'd rather not waste resources on ammunition, such as overland travel or cavern exploration.
