The Starmada's several projectile types. Note how the Plasma bursts can damage enemies behind tiles with its explosion.

The Starmada is a craftable post-Moon Lord ranged weapon, the direct upgrade to the Starfleet, and the final upgrade of the Star Cannon. It automatically fires a barrage of five random star-related projectiles. These projectiles do not pierce and have randomly varying movement speeds, even amongst others of the same type, although the plasma blasts are always the fastest. The Starmada initially fires rather slowly, but fires faster the longer the player uses the weapon. Upon reaching around 10 seconds of sustained fire, a ring of particles is emitted from the player to indicate that they've reached the maximum fire-rate. It uses Fallen Stars as ammo and has a 66% chance to not consume them.

Its best modifier is Unreal.

  • Repeatedly killing Astrum Deus is an efficient and relatively easy way of obtaining fallen stars for this weapon.


  • Its name is a portmanteau of star and armada, referring to the Starmada's ability to fire large amounts of stars quickly.
