A horrifying tentacle, cloven from some abyssal fiend.

It moves in very disquieting ways.

Abyssal Tentacle is a gun that fires a tentacle which homes in on and grips enemies, ignoring obstacles.

Notes[ | ]

  • Synergy Cosmic Horror - If the player has Black Hole Gun, black holes fire three tentacles while active.
  • Synergy Decoy Octorok - If the player has Decoy or Explosive Decoy, the decoy will turn into a charmed enemy.
  • Synergy Kaliber's Grip - If the player has Yellow Chamber, Chaos Bullets, or Holey Grail, Abyssal Tentacle grabs two enemies at a time.
  • The tentacle can grip enemies through walls.
  • If the player has Backup Gun it creates two Abyssal Tentacles.
  • The tentacle can damage disappearing bosses like Cannonbalrog and High Priest if they are connected and kept while vanished.
  • If the player has Ring of Triggers and uses an active item while holding this weapon, the tentacles that are "shot" by the Ring of Triggers will lock-on to and kill most enemies very quickly without spending any ammo.
    • This is especially effective against mini-bosses, as unlike bosses, they are not affected by the DPS cap.

Trivia[ | ]

  • This gun is a reference to the character "Purple Tentacle" — a sentient, disembodied tentacle with plans for world domination — from the LucasArts game Day of the Tentacle.
  • The Synergy Decoy Octorok synergy is a reference to the Metal Gear Solid character, Decoy Octopus and the purple, tentacled Legend of Zelda enemies of the same name.
    • It is also a reference to Dave Crooks, one of Enter the Gungeon's developers, whose handle is DecoyOctorok.
  • The gun could also be a reference to the classic MMORPG RuneScape, where the Abyssal Tentacle is a power whip-like weapon.
  • The Synergy Cosmic Horror synergy is a reference to the Lovecraftian Horror genre, which is also sometimes called "Cosmic Horror." Cosmic horror deals with malevolent, godlike aliens affecting our reality in various unpleasant ways, including tentacles coming out of black holes.
