The AKEY-47 is a masterpiece of Gungeoncraft, perfectly combining the masterful gunplay of an AK-47 with the incredibly useful ability to open locks. An inscription along the frame reads, "EX ARCHA, LIBERTAS."

AKEY-47 is a gun that fires keys. Shooting a locked chest or door will unlock it. Alternatively, opening a chest or door with the AKEY-47 equipped will unlock it for free.

Notes[ | ]

  • Synergy Akey Breaky - If the player has the Shelleton Key, AKEY-47 fires skulls that do 10 damage per skull, receives infinite ammo, and changes in appearance to resemble a Shelleton. Its shots will no longer open locks or reveal secret rooms, though chests can still be opened due to possessing the Shelleton Key.
    • If the player has obtained this synergy via Lich's Eye Bullets, opening a chest or door with the AKEY-47 equipped will still unlock it for free.
  • Has identical statistics to the AK-47.
  • Can be sold by Flynt for 3 keys once unlocked.
  • Its bullets cannot open the padlocks on the trapdoor to the Oubliette and the tunnel to the Resourceful Rat's Lair; however, they can be opened by hand for free with the AKEY-47 equipped.
    • However, AKEY-47 cannot be used in place of the Gnawed Key to open the lock on the hatch that drops down to the Resourceful Rat's Lair, and as of v2.0.6, cannot open the doors and chests that require special keys dropped by Resourceful Rat.
  • If a lock no longer functions because of Lockpicks, shooting it with AKEY-47 will not open it.
    • Door locks (ones that look similar to Flynt) that are no longer functional, due to failure of Trusty Lockpicks, can still be opened with AKEY-47.
  • Shooting a chest with AKEY-47 can still break it, if it has already been damaged and is close to breaking. For this reason it is always better to open a chest with the gun equipped instead of shooting it.

Trivia[ | ]

  • The inscription "Ex Archa, Libertas" is a reference to the Latin phrase "Ex gladio libertas", or 'From the sword, freedom', with 'Archa', the word for 'Chest', replacing 'gladio', the word for sword.
  • The synergy Akey Breaky is probably a reference to the song Achy Breaky Heart popularized by Billy Ray Cyrus.
