Big Boy is an active item.
Effects[edit | edit source]
- Calls down a missile at the crosshair, causing a large explosion that deals 150 damage and leaves behind a large pool of poison creep.
- Enemies within a large radius of the missile turn into Mutant Bullet Kin.
- The explosion will clear enemy bullets in a large area.
- Increases curse by 1 while held.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Meltdown - If the player also has Gamma Ray, Gamma Ray branches twice to form a spread of 5 beams, and using Big Boy refills 100 ammo on the Gamma Ray. Ammo restoration only works if Gamma Ray is held when activating Big Boy.
- Natural Selection - Unknown synergy with Evolver.
- Normally invulnerable enemies like Gunreapers can be transformed into Mutant Bullet Kin.
