Spud Gun is a tool in Scrap Mechanic.

Overview[edit | edit source]

A gun that shoots potatoes. It is one of only three ranged weapons in the game.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Left mouse shoots a potato. Holding right mouse aims down the makeshift sights, zooming in the player's view. This helps when shooting at distant targets.

The potatoes fired by the gun can destroy any block or part with 1 durability, are detected by Sensors, cause Explosive Canisters to explode, and can trigger Switches and Buttons. They cause a small amount of knockback on hit.

The Spud Gun is currently the only weapon suitable for sniping.

Potatoes fired by the Spud Gun at soil mounds will plant a potato crop.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

The only way to obtain a Spud Gun is through Trading. It costs 2 Orange Crates, 2 Blueberry Crates, and 1 Caged Farmer.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Spud Gun is based on the potato cannon, which is also called a spud gun. "Spud gun" can also refer to a toy that fires small chunks of potato, though the Spud Gun is more similar to the potato cannon, as it fires whole potatoes.
  • The writing on the Spud Gun's barrel reads "PVC VACUUM TUBE".
  • Prior to Beta 0.4.0, players in Creative Mode would make a gasping noise when hit by a potato shot by another player.
  • In Survival, the Spud Gun is considered a tool, so is not dropped when your mechanic dies.
