The Swarmer is a craftable Hardmode magic gun and is the upgrade to both the Bee Gun and the Wasp Gun. Like its predecessors, it rapidly fires homing bees and wasps that dissipate upon damaging enemies and touching tiles.

Its best modifier is Mythical. However, the weapon's knockback will not be affected due to already being 0.
