How much damage does the best weapon in Terraria do?
The best melee weapon in the game is the Terrarian. While Coin Gun and Meowmere seem better, the Coin Gun requires a lot of money if you want high dps, and the Meowmere can deal mostly 1000 damage with a projectile, while the Terrarian deals 190 dmg and throws projectiles with the same damage, AND if combined with the Yoyo Bag, it's dps get's to 5000 easily, and that with a single enemy.
In conclusion, the Terrarian is the best melee weapon, the best ranged weapon is the S.D.M.G., the strongest magic weapon is the Last Prism, the strongest summoning weapon is the Stardust Dragon Staff, and the strongest sentry is the Rainbow Crystal Staff(excluding the Tavernkeep's sentries, which the best is Ballista staff).
The best on IOS is the possessed hatchet .It's a must have drops of the GOLEM
There is no best weapon because someone could ask meaning magicaly or attack wise. So you would want to go in between with the True Excaliber or The Legendary Picksaw. Armorwise the most carefully chosen armorers will have picked turtle armor, for it is the only way to defeat a dungeon gaurdian, dealing equal or more damage when the player is hit.
The coin gun is the most powerful ranged weapon The terrablade is the most powerful sword in the game Unless you count the horsemans blade which in total does more damage than terrablade because of its pumpkins that it spawns with the right setup (never use in duke fishron fight cause you need vampire knives and terrablade)
The best melee weapon is the Meowmere, as it does 200 damage. The internet has a bunch of different items that say are the best but I know that is best for swords. :D
sniper rifle. it does a crit. of over 620 dps. i rest my case. it just has a slow speed
The Terra Blade has the best sword damage. The best summoner is the Frost Hydra. The best magic is the anchor spell. Rainbow Gun/Rod, Paladin Hammer and The Possessed Hatchet are the best boomerangs. The best bow is the Vulcan Repeater. The best armor is full turtle accessories (in my opinion), Flame Gauntlet, hoverboard, ankh, shield, lightning boots and Master Ninja gear. The best gun is Clockwork Rifle and Mega Shark with Chlorophyte bullets.
