Drains will from foes.

An item to be held by a Gungeoneer. Can be used to weaponize stolen will against the holder's enemies.

Life Orb is a gun that drains purple lightning from the enemy nearest the crosshair, dealing damage consistently. After killing an enemy, a special icon appears above the player, and pressing the reload button performs a special attack that deals damage to every enemy in the room. The damage dealt is equal to the amount of damage Life Orb dealt to the last enemy killed with Life Orb; killing multiple enemies before reloading does not further increase damage.

Notes[ | ]

  • The reload attack is based on enemies killed with gunfire while holding the Life Orb, not necessarily kills with the Life Orb. Enemies killed by armed companions such as R2G2 will still charge the gun's special attack.
  • It is possible to break the damage cap with the Life Orb, but only against the Lich. If you kill the 1st or 2nd form with the Life Orb, you can use the reload attack to 1-shot the next form and instantly kill it. This only works if you do at least 1000 damage with the Life Orb, which will usually require an ammo/damage increase, otherwise the Life Orb will run out before you kill the boss with it alone.

Trivia[ | ]

  • This item is a reference to an item from the Pokémon series of the same name and similar appearance.
  • "Your soul is mine" is a quote from Shang Tsung in Mortal Kombat.
