Curse is a hidden stat that influences various elements of a Gungeon run. Curse is tracked separately for each character if playing in co-op.

Cursed enemies (and their attacks) are referred to as "Jammed", and take on a glowing red and black color.

Effects of Curse[edit | edit source]

  • Enemies drop more Money.png.
  • Jammed enemies start appearing and become more common with each point of curse.
    • Jammed enemies deal 1 full heart of damage, move and shoot faster, deal contact damage if they didn't already, and have increased health equal to health * 3.5 + 10.
    • Jammed enemies have a maximum health of 175 * X, where X is the floor's health scaling multiplier.
  • Veteran enemies, such as Veteran Bullet Kin, Veteran Shotgun Kin, Blue Bookllet, and Green Bookllet become more common with higher Curse.
  • Jammed bosses can appear, which behave like regular bosses but deal a full heart of damage with every attack and have their health modified by the formula health * 1.2 + 100.
  • The chance to receive a reward upon clearing a room decreases with each point of curse, similar to how Coolness increases said chance.
  • The chance to receive ammo upon clearing a room increases with each point of curse.
  • The chance of a chest becoming a Mimic increases by 2.1% for each point of curse.
  • The chance of a chest having a fuse when discovered increases by 5% for each point of curse.
  • Players become able to enter the Demon Face without the need to hold 100 coins if they are cursed at least once.
  • Lord of the Jammed spawns when the player reaches 10 curse. It cannot be killed, and continually chases the player.

Past 10 curse, the odds of enemies and bosses being jammed stays at 50%, but other effects continue to increase linearly.

Increasing Curse[edit | edit source]

Curse can be increased by:

Decreasing Curse[edit | edit source]

Curse can be decreased by:

  • Dropping any cursed item/gun.
  • Praying at the following Shrines:
    • Cleanse Shrine (sets curse to 0)
    • Dice Shrine granting Cleansed (removes up to 10 curse)

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Stealing from Cursula will only increase curse by 1.
  • Curse carries over to the Past.
  • In a few room layouts in the Abbey of the True Gun, Forge, and Bullet Hell, certain enemies are guaranteed to be jammed regardless of curse.
  • Even enemies that are normally completely harmless, such as chickens, popcorn (the small enemies sometimes left after defeating Poopulons) and the tiny blobulin spawned after killing Blobulord, can be jammed and will deal contact damage if jammed.
