A pair of finely-crafted wax wings.

Wax Wings is a passive item.

Effects[ | ]

  • Grants flight

Notes[ | ]

  • Synergy Peripheral Vision - If the player has Light Gun, the Light Gun will turn from red to white and a dog resembling the Duck Hunt dog will appear and slap an enemy when they are shot.
  • Synergy Vulcan Raving - If the player also has Vulcan Cannon, its knockback is increased by 50%.
  • This item grants immunity to floor hazards like water, poison/fire goop, and spike/fire traps.
    • This additionally also means that gun reload effects that rely on "standing on goop" (such as with Plunger or Gungine) cannot be done.
  • If the player also has Jetpack, they can dodge roll even while Jetpack is active.
    • When dropping other items that grant flight, you lose immunity to status effect damage (unless you drop wax wings, and pick them back up)
      • Winchester's game is trivial since you can just shoot every target point-blank.

Trivia[ | ]

  • This item is an allusion to the Greek tale of Icarus, where the craftsman Daedalus made wings out of wax and feathers to escape Crete with his son Icarus. However, as Icarus flew too close too the Sun, the wax melted and he fell into the ocean.
    • The pickup text reinforces this, since gun as a word is very similar to Sun.
