The Vega Phaser is a Hardmode gun that has a chance to be dropped by Hostile Invaders. It turns any Musket Balls or Silver Bullets fired into bursts of three laser bolts, which spread outwards and move slightly slower than average bullets. Only one bullet is consumed per burst. It also has a 25% chance to shoot an additional beam projectile, which travels instantaneously and pierces through multiple enemies.

Its best modifier is Unreal.
