The Steamgunner Controller is a Hardmode summon weapon purchased from the Steampunker for 50 Gold Coin. It spawns a Steamgunner Drone to rapidly fire bullets at nearby enemies. Like other minions, summoned Steamgunner Drones are invincible and follow the player for an unlimited amount of time, unless the player dies, summons a replacement minion, or cancels the buff. Additionally, Steamgunner Drones cost 2 minion slots each to summon.

Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, Minions cannot deal critical hits. The only significant advantage a Mythical Steamgunner Controller has over a Ruthless one is knockback.


  • The player must invest in items that increase the number of Minion slots available in order to use this weapon.
  • If the Show Donator Item Color configuration option is disabled, the Steamgunner Controller will have a rarity of Rarity Level: 6 instead of the standard Rarity level: Donator.
