Objects are environmental items found within rooms of the Gungeon. Gungeoneers can interact with objects to affect combat.

Barrels[ | ]

Barrels contain elemental goop. Interacting with a barrel will roll it and leave a trail of goop. Bullets cause barrels to explode, splashing the area with long-lasting goop.

Sprite Function
Explosive Barrel Explosive barrels explode when shot. Enemies and Gungeoneers alike are damaged by exploding barrels. Dodge rolling through an explosive barrel destroys it without causing an explosion. Deals approx. 35 damage to enemies.
RareExplosive Exactly the same as Explosive Barrels. Extremely rare.
Water Barrel Water barrels leave water when rolled or shot. The water overrides other liquids and can be electrified to deal damage to enemies. Also puts out the fireplace to access the Oubliette.
Oil Barrel Oil barrels trail oil when rolled or shot. Explosions and fire weapons ignite the oil, dealing significant damage to walking enemies.
Poison Barrel Toxic barrels spread poison when rolled or shot. Enemies that step on the goop are continuously hurt for a few seconds.

Barrels can be rolled into corridors and other rooms. Barrels do not roll into pits, but stop right at the edge of the pit, making it difficult to roll them anywhere else. Enemies, particularly Bullet Kin, tend to be distracted by rolling barrels and shoot them.

Water barrels in the Keep of the Lead Lord roll slower than other barrels, so that maneuvering them into the Fireplace is practical.

Tables[ | ]

Table demonstration

Tables can be flipped over to block bullets. During the flipping animation, bullets near the table will be cleared, similar to Blanks or explosions. After flipping a table, the player will become invincible and absorb bullets for a few frames. Afterwards, the table can be pushed around, and will be destroyed after taking enough damage. Tables also absorb bullets when destroyed, in the same manner as when they are flipped. Bullet Kin and several of their subspecies will also flip tables and use them as cover themselves.

The player can also dodge roll over tables. Tables can be dodge rolled over three times before breaking. Stone tables can only be rolled over twice. If multiple tables are adjacent, the player will slide over all of them. If the dodge roll button is pressed while the player is on the table, it will break immediately.

Notes[ | ]

Coffins[ | ]


Coffins are found in the Hollow. They are similar to tables, but can only be flipped on their long ends. They have a chance to spill a cone of poison goop in the direction they are flipped. In all other regards, however, they are functionally similar to tables, and will activate Table Tech effects and count towards the Rage Mode achievement.

Clutter[ | ]

Clutter is a wide variety of minor objects found throughout the Gungeon, ranging from flowers to crates to skeletons. A few kinds of clutter can be found atop tables. Some clutter objects will stop a single bullet before being destroyed, while others do not obstruct gunfire. All clutter breaks instantly on contact with a Gundead creature or Gungeoneer. Clutter has a very tiny chance to spawn a Gun Fairy when broken. If the Pot Shots challenge is active, clutter objects have a chance to fire bullets at the player as they break.

Alone among clutter objects, stalagmites in the Black Powder Mine absorb multiple bullets before breaking, and block the movement of Gundead.

Braziers[ | ]


Braziers can be found as early as the Keep of the Lead Lord, but are most commonly found in the Forge. They can be flipped and leave a trail of fire. Braziers do not provide cover, don't clear projectiles, and don't interact with Table Tech passive items. By walking next to the Brazier, you don't take damage and neither will enemies. Rolling through a brazier destroys it without damaging the Gungeoneer. Braziers also block enemies like Lead Cubes in the Forge.

Cursed Pots[ | ]

Cursed Pot

Cursed Pots have a large purple aura around them. If the player stands in the aura for too long, their curse will increase by 1 and the pot will break. Cursed Pots can be broken by shooting or touching them. Cursed pots do increase the count of killed enemies, useful for weapons like the Polaris.

While their aura may visually extend beyond walls into other rooms, the actual curse effect does not.

PS4 the curse effect still persists through walls.

Cursed Pots affect the player while teleporting into a room, although this is only an issue in Challenge Mode.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Cursed Pots are likely a reference to Curse Jars from Dark Souls II.

Oil Lamps[ | ]

Oil Lamp

Oil Lamps can be found mounted to the walls of the Black Powder Mine. Upon being shot, they will break and leave behind a puddle of oil. Explosions and fire weapons ignite the oil, dealing significant damage to walking enemies.

These can be exploited to have a technically infinite source of ammo while using the Gungine, because of its ability to refund all ammo used in a clip when reloading over puddles. (Oil / Poison / Water)

Minecarts[ | ]

TNT Minecart

A TNT barrel inside a Minecart.


Minecarts are found in the Black Powder Mine. Interacting with a minecart lets a Gungeoneer ride along minecart tracks. Bullet Kin, Red Shotgun Kin, and Executioners can also ride minecarts.

Additionally, some minecarts can contain explosive barrels or mechanical turrets which fire at the player. These turrets can be destroyed with explosions, after which the minecart is free to be ridden.

If the player dodge rolls while not touching any of the movement keys, then they will not exit the minecart and will only dodge roll. If the player is moving, they will dodge roll out of the minecart; if they touch another cart in the process, they'll automatically ride it. This technique is used to acquire the Arcane Gunpowder in the Black Powder Mine.

Minecarts that the player is riding in are not affected by friction; a moving minecart will automatically continue to move along the track until the player exits it.

In co-op, two players can occupy the same minecart, but only one player will be able to steer it.

Munchers[ | ]

Muncher Evil Muncher

Munchers are strange creatures that happen to eat any gun other than starting weapons. After giving the green muncher 2 guns to eat, they will reward you with a new fresh gun. The red muncher will take 10+ guns until rewarding you with a new gun.

See Munchers.

Mirrors[ | ]


Mirror Monster

The Monster in the mirror.

Mirrors will show an unlocked chest in their reflection, which can be opened if the player presses the interact button while their reflection is next to the chest. This will shatter the mirror and increase the player's curse by 3.5. The mirror will also shatter if the player shoots it, which will increase the player's curse by the same amount and will make the chest impossible to get.

Notes[ | ]

  • It is possible for chests in mirrors to be Mimics.
  • It is possible for chests in mirrors to be Glitch Chests, but they do not have the usual glitch animation.
  • In Rainbow Mode, Bowler will sit on where you have to be to open the chest in the mirror, although the chest will still be only visible in the mirror, making Bowler flying mid-air.
  • If a mirror chest appears, it may prevent the two treasure rooms from having one item and one gun. If the mirror chest has an item, both treasure rooms may have guns, and if the mirror chest has a gun, both treasure rooms may have items.
  • When playing as The Paradox or doing a run with the paradox effect active, the mirror will not reflect the effect on the player.
  • You can freeze the mirror, obscuring the chest's reflection. The chest can still be opened as usual, and the player will still be cursed upon opening.
  • Mirror chests cannot be shot. Bullets do not appear in the reflection and will not damage the chest.

Trivia[ | ]

  • A monster's eye briefly appears after shattering the mirror, which is purely aesthetic and serves no purpose. This was added in the Supply Drop Update.
  • The curse effect upon breaking the mirror is a reference to the folk belief that breaking a mirror causes seven years of bad luck (3.5 curse is 7 x 0.5).
