Black Hole Gun is a gun that fires black holes which attract enemies and bullets. The black holes travel slowly across the room until they hit a wall.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Synergy.png Cosmic Horror - If the player has Abyssal Tentacle, black holes fire three tentacles while active.
  • The black hole will also attract friendly projectiles; however, beam type weapons will not be affected.
  • Most enemies killed by the black hole will not drop Money.png.
    • Avoid using this gun when fighting a Mimic as the drop will potentialy disappear in the black hole.
  • Black Hole Gun is one of the best guns for clearing rooms as it can kill a whole wave of enemies with one shot while removing all projectiles.
  • In boss fights it is best to switch to other weapons while the black hole is traveling. This increases damage output while saving ammo. Beam weapons are the best choice as they are not affected by the black Hole.
  • The shots can suck up the Dragun's knives.
  • If combined with any high-ammo weapon using Duct Tape, it becomes a way to easily beat every boss without taking damage.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Despite Black Hole Gun not being part of the Synergy.png Outer Limits synergy, firing three Mr. Accretion Jr. planets into the black hole will still cause it to explode and deal 100 damage to all enemies in the room, though it's more difficult due to the black hole's shorter duration and disappearance when colliding with walls.
  • The trajectory of the Black Hole Gun's bullets can be altered by the Lead Maiden, causing them to travel with the Maiden when it is invulnerable.
  • When Lower Case r is duct taped to it, the black hole will not fire if the fire button is released while Lower Case r is in the middle of a word.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The gun's Ammonomicon Entry is a reference to the 1994 song "Black Hole Sun" by the American rock band Soundgarden.
  • The Synergy.png Cosmic Horror Synergy is a reference to the Lovecraftian Horror genre, which is also sometimes called "Cosmic Horror." Cosmic horror deals with malevolent, godlike aliens affecting our reality in various unpleasant ways, including tentacles coming out of black holes.
