Reload for momentary safety.

A misbegotten attempt to combine melee and ranged combat, the axe portion of this gun is mostly worthless. Reloading it involves swinging the blade around wildly, which might protect you from a stray bullet.

Huntsman is a gun that fires shotgun blasts of 6 bullets. Reloading swings the axe, destroying bullets and knocking back enemies in a short range. Curse is increased by 1 while this gun is held.

Synergies[ | ]

  • Synergy Insight - If the player also has Trick Gun, a creature that resembles the Interdimensional Horror appears at entrances to secret rooms, revealing their location.
  • Synergy Iron Stance - If the player also has Heavy Boots, the gun's damage and knockback are increased by 20%, its shot speed is increased by 50%, and its reload time is decreased by 20%.
  • Synergy Lumberjacked - If the player also has Mahoguny, the damage of both guns is increased by 25%.
  • Synergy The Red Hood - If the player also has Wolf, when Huntsman is held, Wolf's attacks will significantly weaken enemies.

Notes[ | ]

  • Peculiarly, the Huntsman is a part of the FULLAUTO gun class despite not being remotely fully automatic. This is probably to classify it with other weapons that delete bullets on reload, such as Excaliber and Fightsabre.
    • Because the Huntsman is not SHOTGUN type despite being a shotgun, it does not benefit from the Synergy Shotgun Affinity synergy.

Trivia[ | ]

  • The fact that the weapon increases Curse while being carried stems from the Gungeon rejecting non-bullet based weapons.
  • Executioners wield this weapon.
  • The Huntsman appears to be a Regular Shotgun with an axe blade attached to the underside of the barrel. Statistically, The Huntsman is weaker overall, with a slightly worse magazine size, damage, and fire rate.
  • The Huntsman is a reference to the game Bloodborne where there is a transforming weapon called "Hunter Axe". This is further supported by the fact that the Huntsman has a synergy with the Trick Gun (another item with multiple Bloodborne references) called insight, Synergy the key item in Bloodborne that allows hunters to perceive the "Great Ones" who are the primary antagonists of the game.
  • Synergy
  • The tagline "Axes Of Evil" is a play on words in reference to a speech by George W. Bush where he referred to foreign governments allegedly aiding terrorists as belonging to an Axis of Evil.
  • The Synergy The Red Hood synergy is an allusion to the fairy tale "Little Red Riding Hood," where a young girl who has never been taught not to talk to strangers is eaten by a wolf and is rescued by a lumberjack (or a hunter in some versions).
