The Steamgunner Controller is a Hardmode summon weapon purchased from the Steampunker for 50 . 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.
Notes[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This item is one of five (the others being the Viscount's Cane, Taboo Wand, Beholder Staff, and Ember Staff) Summon weapons that have a minimum requirement to use, requiring 2 minion slots to summon 1 of its minion.
