Ammonomicon Beholster.png

Sphere of Many Guns
A fiend from the deep. The Beholster wields six guns simultaneously, with each more fearsome than the last.

Its great eye is capable of emitting a beam of great energy, but it cannot turn quickly while firing.

Beholster is a boss found in the Gungeon Proper.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

  • Fires two spreads of bullets towards the player followed by two rings of bullets in all directions.
  • Fires three fast moving small lasers at the player.
    • Sometimes this attack is replaced by 3 slow moving regular bullets.
    • This attack usually happens in conjunction with another attack.
  • Fires two missiles that home in on the player. These missiles can be destroyed by shooting them.
    • If the Beholster is Jammed, he shoots four missiles instead of two.
  • Charges up and fires a continuous laser while rotating towards the player.
    • This laser can be rolled over or blocked by cover.
    • The sweep of the beam will damage and frequently kill any Beadies caught in its path.
  • Spawns a Beadie.
  • Occasionally slightly moves towards the player after attacking a few times.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Once you know Beholster's patterns, he really isn't that difficult. He has a relatively large hitbox, so accuracy isn't much of a problem.

  • When he fires spreads and rings, try not to dodge roll and simply walk in between the bullets, as you will be able to shoot more if you roll less.
  • The small lasers should be easy to dodge, they're only single shots. Try not to wedge yourself in the way of another attack by dodging these, though!
  • If he fires missiles, either focus on destroying the missiles first before attacking the Beholster or simply evade them while attacking - they explode by themselves eventually.
  • If he fires his laser, simply dodge roll through it or hide behind cover.
  • If a Beadie spawns, kill it before focusing on the Beholster, as its stray bullets coupled with the laser make a hard-to-dodge combo.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Beadie can damage the player after the Beholster's death.
  • Five of the six guns the Beholster holds and uses against you can be unlocked in game. These guns are Com4nd0Machine Pistol, Eye of the Beholster, Void Marshal, and M1911.
    • The sixth gun is the unused M9.
  • Two glitched Beholsters are fought after opening a Glitch Chest.
  • Because the Beholster's skin colour is mostly red, the main way to tell if he's jammed or not before the battle begins is by looking at his teeth.
  • Staying a significant distance away from the Beholster can make most of its attacks easy to avoid.
  • Since Advanced Gungeons and Draguns, The Beholster has 3 different boss arenas in total, containing:
    • 4 large pits, 1 covering each corner.
    • A pit dotted near the corners but not touching the exact edges, allowing the player to walk around them.
    • 2 pillars parallel to each other lined up horizontally on the far sides of the room with the Beholster in the middle.
  • If the Beholster is dead, all Beadies on the current floor become passive and will not have guns. However, they can still deal contact damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Beholster is a reference to the Beholder of the Dungeons & Dragons role playing game.
  • The Beholster is one of only two enemies in the game to have a song in the soundtrack named after them (“The Beholster Don’t Blink”), the other being the Cubulon (“Die Cubulon Die”).
