The Flare Gun is a ranged weapon that can only shoot Flares and Blue Flares. It can sometimes be found in Chests, along with Flares.
The Flares fired by the Flare Gun give as much light as a torch, stick to surfaces, (in the same way as Sticky Glowsticks), and are not doused by water, making this tool very helpful for exploring or mining.
- Although Flares have a high chance of inflicting the debuff "On Fire!" and can pierce an infinite number of mobs, this item is still not a particularly well-suited to use as a weapon due to the very low amount of damage it inflicts.
- The Flare Gun doesn't count as a gun for the purpose of spawning the Arms Dealer, and cannot be reforged.
- Like Glowsticks, flares fired by this item will disappear upon exiting a world.
- The Flare Gun emits light underwater when held. As such, it can be used as a substitute for Glowsticks.
