General Description

The Parsniper is a Weapon that can be purchased in the Town. It fires single-targeting, high damaging projectiles, at 100 base damage each. It has a range as far across the screen as the player can see. The Parsniper possess a base Clip Size of only 2 shots each, as well as the slowest reload speed in the game at 1 full second per shot(tied with the Blunderbloom), meaning players need to aim each shot carefully.

Comparison

Unlike all other Weapons, the Parsniper has an instant fire rate, where each shot will instantly travel across the screen as soon as the trigger is pressed. In addition, it posses the highest damage per shot of any Weapon, allowing it to easily defeat most Enemies in a single hit. This is further enhanced by it's exclusive Headshot chance upgrade, which allows a chance for the gun to deal much greater damage. Similarly, the Parsniper can be upgraded to have the exclusive Piercing upgrade, which allows each shot from this gun to pierce and damage every single Enemy it comes into contact with. In addition, the Parsniper is one of only two Weapons that can provide the Zap upgrade, with the only other being the Spud Rifle. However, the Parsniper's longer reload time, combined with it's extremely small clip size, even with upgrades, limits it's overall damage output. In addition, it is extremely inefficient at clearing small, weak groups of Enemies, making other Weapons more preferable in that regard.

Overall, it is designed for when players are attempting to clear out certain Biomes with groups of Enemies with high health; it serves well in the Tundra and Desert, but not so well in the Plains or Jungle. Despite what one might assume by the weapon's extremely high damage, its lack of ability to damage enemies in a group and its slow reload speed make it a subpar choice for most Boss fights, as the burst damage it provides will not kill a Boss and the player will be left waiting on the Weapon to reload. It is, however, excellent for Tree Guardian fights.
