Input Output
When this gun runs out of ammo, it is destroyed, creating a chest.

This pad was once used as the summons for an ancient convocation of wizards. It is crusted from years of use, notably Back, Back, Low Punch.

Directional Pad is a gun that fires bullets in four directions. Upon running out of ammo, the gun is destroyed and spawns a chest of any quality.

Entering certain button combinations can cause certain special effects:

  • Pressing down, then right, then fire will cause the gun to fire fireballs that deal 45 damage.
  • Quickly pressing left, then left again, then fire will cause the gun to fire a grappling hook. This is also the move referenced in the Ammonomicon entry.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Synergy.png Wrath Of The Blam - If the player has Tear Jerker, Tear Jerker is replaced with a crying bullet head that can only fire in cardinal directions but deals double damage.
  • The grappling hook can be used to steal items from shops.
  • The chest spawned may be a Mimic.
  • The chest that the Directional Pad spawns cannot be harmed by enemies or bosses.
    • Unfortunately, the spawned chest can be blown up by exploding enemies such as Pinheads.
  • The chest can still be spawned in a blessed run.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The inputs required to make the special shots are based on famous special attacks from fighting game series:
    • The Fireball is the "Hadouken" attack performed by character Ryu in Street Fighter.
    • The Grappling Hook is the rope spear attack performed by character Scorpion in Mortal Kombat; this attack is referenced in the entry description.
    • Upon reloading, your character inputs the directional pad part of the Konami Code.
  • The Synergy.png Wrath of the Blam synergy is a reference to the "Wrath Of The Lamb" DLC for The Binding Of Isaac. The crying bullet head that Tear Jerker turns into resembles Isaac's face.
  • The "ancient convocation of wizards" referenced in the Ammonomicon entry could be a reference to the film "The Wizard," as the Directional pad resembles the Dpad on the NES controller.
