The Vega Phaser is a Hardmode gun that is dropped by Hostile Invaders. It turns any bullets it fires into bursts of three laser bolts, which spread outwards and move slightly slower than average bullets but consume only one bullet per burst. It also has a chance to shoot an additional beam projectile, which travels instantaneously and pierces through multiple enemies.
Its best modifier is Unreal.
