Grappling Hook: 10
|Sell Creep Price:||30|
|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]
- 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 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.
