Not to be confused with Aries, an enemy that spawns in the Astral Infection.

The Aeries was a craftable Hardmode gun that autofired and was a direct upgrade to the Cursed Capper. When Musket Balls were used as ammo, it fired a light blue shockblast round that emitted an aesthetic particle cloud on impact. It inflicted two hits of damage per bullet and returned life to the wielder equivalent to 5% of the damage dealt to the enemy.

As of the update, it has been effectively replaced by Pearl God.

Its best modifier was Unreal.
