Just A Box
The ultimate in stealth technology. Surprise attacks deal additional damage.

No one is perceptive enough to see through such an elaborate ruse.

Box is an active item.

Effects[ | ]

  • While wearing the box, enemies will not target the player. Most actions other than moving will remove the box, including firing a weapon, charging a weapon, dodge rolling, flipping a table, and using teleporters.
    • Firing a shot while under the box deals double damage and removes the box.
    • Reloading does not remove the box, even if the player has Hip Holster.
    • Bosses will not attack the player until they reveal themselves.
  • Box can be used to steal from shops as long as it is activated before entering the shop.

Notes[ | ]

  • Synergy Apiary - If the player has Bee Hive, it turns into an apiary and automatically regenerates ammo over time.
  • Synergy Flat Stanley - If the player has Mailbox, the Mailbox's clip size is reduced by 50% and its reload time is reduced by 33%, allowing packages to be fired more often.
  • Synergy I need scissors! 61! - If the player also has Trank Gun, Trank Gun changes appearance, its rate of fire is decreased, damage and reload time are increased, and its bullets will inflict slow and stun.
  • Synergy Pretty Good - If the player has SAA, coolness is increased by 2.
  • Synergy What A Thrill - If the player has Patriot, it has a chance to transmogrify enemies into snakes.
  • Has no effect if used while enemies are already targeting the player.
  • While it has no effect on regular bosses as already stated, you can use this to be hidden for the first phase of the Resourceful Rat’s boss fight.
