The Nova Rifle is a craftable Hardmode gun. The weapon has a slow firing speed, but a nearly unmatched base damage. Additionally, holding the weapon will automatically set you into a lesser stealth mode, making enemies less likely to target you and increasing knockback slightly as well as making you slightly transparent.

Its best modifier is Unreal.
