The Crackshot Colt is a craftable Pre-Hardmode gun. When used with its primary fire (left-click), it transforms any suitable bullets into Marksman Rounds. When used with its secondary fire (right-click), a Copper Coin is consumed and fired with an upwards curve. Coins are gravity-affected and cannot damage enemies. They can also be recoverable at a 100% chance, unless multiple coins are hit by the same bullet, in which only the first coin hit is recovered. Only 4 thrown coins can be active at a time.

Copper Coins guarantee critical strikes and additively increase the damage of the Marksman Round by 50% on its first hit, and 15% on further hits.

Its best modifier is Unreal.




  • The gun noticeably recoils while used with either fire. However, this does not affect the player's velocity in any way.
  • The secondary fire is 3 times as fast as the primary fire but does not auto-use.
  • Fired coins have 5 times the grab range when dropped as items.
  • If no Copper Coin is available, higher valued coins are automatically consumed by breaking down into smaller valued coins on use.
  • Coins can also be taken from storage items such as Piggy Bank, Safe, Defender's Forge, and Void Vault.

    • Can now use coins from personal storage items such as the Piggy Bank.
    • Coin flash when the guaranteed critical strike activates is now more visible, and its tooltip now mentions that coins only guarantee critical strikes after a short delay.

    • Can no longer take coins from the Piggy Bank, Safe, or Defender's Forge.
    • Coin hits are now guaranteed to be critical strikes.

    • Coins now additively increase damage by 70% on first hit, and 20% on further hits, instead of multiplying damage by 2.5x.
    • Coin ricochets now track slightly ahead of the target.
    • Striking coins decreases Daawnlight Spirit Origin's critical strike damage multiplier from 3.5x to 2.4x.
    • Now uses 8 Any Gold Bars and 4 Copper Coins in its recipe instead of 3 and 5 respectively, and now uses a Blood Orb.
    • Fixed it being unable to toss coins once the player has over 999 Platinum Coins.
  • Buffed coin ricochet damage multiplier from 2x to 2.5x.
