1000 Needles!
Low damage, high rate of fire. Spiny!

Remnants of Gun Cacti can be found throughout the Gungeon, but no one is certain as to their source. Perhaps they hail from a yet undiscovered Chamber? Regardless, their impressive needle capacity is a boon to any Gungeoneer.

Cactus is a gun that fires low-damage needles rapidly. Its high ammo, fast rate of fire, and infinite range make it a good room clearer, especially for earlier floors.


  • Synergy.png Cactus Flower - If the player has Broccoli or Orange, Cactus has a chance to fire a prickly pear that bounces off walls and fires needles in all directions.
    • The chance to fire a prickly pear also applies to guns Duct Taped to Cactus with the synergy.
  • Synergy.png Vegetables - If the player also has Broccoli, Cactus's damage is tripled, needle size is doubled, and needles pierce enemies and bounce off obstacles.
  • Synergy.png Pea Cannon - If the player has Pea Shooter, its shots become larger, deal more damage, and explode.
  • Synergy.png Succulent DOOM - If the player has Starpew, every Cactus shot fires a spread of 5 needles.
  • Synergy.png Thorn Bath, ooh! - If the player has Armor of Thorns, Cactus's damage is increased by 30%. While holding Cactus, nails are periodically fired in all directions.
  • This gun is extremely useful with Remote Bullets when it has all of the synergies due to high projectile count.


  • "1000 Needles!" is a reference to a move used by the Cactuar, a recurring enemy from the Final Fantasy series, who resembles a walking cactus.
  • The "undiscovered Chamber" in the Cactus' description may be the unused Old West floor.
