The Pipe Rifle is one of the many weapons that can be acquired in the Frontier. It is occasionally seen sold by Gunner Gary in Topple Town at a price of 450,000 gold. Other viable methods of acquiring the Pipe Rifle include but are not limited to:
- The completion of the entire quest chain of the Arnold Slime Quest.
- A possible reward from the Firefly Quest.
- A possible reward from Treasure Chests.
The weapon has no special abilities whatsoever and to make up for its lack of special ability, the players can use the scope mechanic to aim at creatures from afar.
- It is one of the few ranged weapons that can be acquired from a quest as of the 1.10 (Fishing) Update.
- If the player completes the Arnold Slime Quest, they will be rewarded with this weapon, as well as 35 bullets serving as ammunition for the players.
- The community often advises beginner ranged users to acquire the Pipe Rifle from the questline as it is 'free' and 'easy to use'.
