The Archerfish is a Pre-Hardmode gun that is found in the Ancient Treasure Chests within the Abyss. If Musket Balls are used as ammo, bullets are replaced with a bubbly stream of water that pierces once. It also fires a short-range ring regardless of ammo used, which deals 50% of the weapon's damage and also pierces once.

Its best modifier is Unreal.
