Distracts enemies.

Most inhabitants of the Gungeon are not the most intelligent of creatures, and will fire upon anything that they do not recognize. This crude fascimile of a Gungeoneer will hold their attention for a time.

Many Gundead seem content to lock trespassers up in cells, despite their trigger-happy natures. Somewhere deep in the Gungeon, there is probably a prison full of Decoys.

Decoy is an active item.

Effects[ | ]

  • Places a decoy that enemies will target. The decoy will be destroyed after taking enough damage.
  • Can be used to steal from shops.

Synergies[ | ]

  • Synergy Deadly Distraction - If the player also has Monster Blood, the Decoy creates a large poison pool when attacked.
  • Synergy Decoy Octorok - If the player also has Abyssal Tentacle, the decoy will become a charmed enemy once destroyed.
  • Synergy Frosty Distraction - If the player also has Heart of Ice, the Decoy becomes partially made of ice and causes enemies that shoot it to be frozen.
  • Synergy Hardwood - If the player also has Mahoguny, it will fire three explosive shots at a time.
  • Synergy Kage Bunshin - If the player also has Shadow Bullets, using Decoy spawns a shadow clone of the player that mirrors their movements and fires towards the crosshair whenever the player fires.
    • This synergy essentially turns Decoy into Shadow Clone. Using the item no longer deploys a decoy and stops providing the ability to steal from shops.
  • Synergy Kinjutsu - If the player also has Shadow Clone, Shadow Clone creates 3 clones instead of 1.

Interactions[ | ]

  • Ring of Triggers - Using the Decoy will also result in a circle of bullets being shot outwards, which will oftentimes destroy the Decoy, making stealing difficult unless this item is dropped first.

Notes[ | ]

  • Items cannot be purchased from a shop with a decoy in it; stealing is the only option. Place a decoy close to the shop's entrance and shoot it from outside the shop to enable buying items normally again.
