The Slag Magnum is a Hardmode gun that is dropped by Earth Elementals. When used with Musket Balls, it converts them into slag rounds that do not pierce and split off into 4 small shards on impact which deal 35% of the original bullet's damage. Both the slag rounds and shards inflict the Armor Crunch debuff.

Its best modifier is Unreal.

Tips

  • Because of the high armor reduction, it is much more effective on enemies with high defense. This means it can be quite potent as a support weapon throughout the entire rest of the game.
  • Due to how early it is available and its powerful effect, it is an excellent weapon against the Mechanical Bosses.
  • Its effect is very similar to Crystal Bullets, making it an excellent crowd control tool.
