If you’re starting out and don’t know much about the game, it’s very important to grind for at least one Illegal Gun Parts. The main reason for that is because of the Megashark. Although not the most powerful in the game, the Megashark will trounce most bosses in Terraria, especially if you get the Unreal version.

The Megashark iis relatively easy and doable at an early point in the game. You just have to have these ingredients:

  1. Minishark – Purchasable at the Arms Dealer for 35 Gold
  2. Shark’s Fin (5x) – Almost a hundred percent drop from Sharks in the Ocean biome.
  3. Soul of Might (20x) – Found by farming The Destroyer or rarely found as a drop by Lepus
  4. Illegal Gun Parts – 20 Gold at the Arms Dealer (Night time)

The only difficult aspect of the grind is the Soul of Might, since it is reasonably gruesome to spawn and beat The Destroyer. However, once you’ve gathered everything, you can craft the Megashark.
