8 March 2023 - Dev's Tease New Shimmer Squirty Gun

As spotted by the PCGamesN team, Terraria could be preparing to add a new shimmer water gun in the upcoming 1.4.5 update.

In a fairly throwaway post on Twitter, Terraria YouTuber James ‘ChippyGaming’ Bennett explained how cool it would be to have a shimmer water gun, to help with the process of changing the look of various NPC's. 

Remarkably, Re-Logic president Andrew ‘Redigit’ Spinks replied with what looked like an image of precisely that: a shimmer water gun sprite.

Added to this, Lead artist Victor ‘Crowno’ Moura waded into the conversation to add: “Nothing like having your wish granted before you even asked for it,” which might suggest this feature was already in the works.

Either way, good news for Terraria fans who may have been growing sick of having to dunk every character or enemy in Shimmer pools.

"Most of the first few weeks of 2023 have been spent in planning out the scope of the 1.4.5 update and getting a few things rolling. As a result, we do not have a ton to showcase at this stage... but rest assured that when we have spoilers to share, we will do so. You know we won't be able to help ourselves!"

"We hope that at least gives you a little glimpse into what we have in store for 1.4.5. To be sure, there will be plenty more to share as development carries on. For now, here's to 2023 starting off with a bang!"
