Directional Pad is a gun that fires bullets in four directions. Upon running out of ammo, the gun is destroyed and spawns a chest of any quality.
Entering certain button combinations can cause certain special effects:
- Briefly Holding down, then right, then fire will cause the gun to fire fireballs that deal 45 damage.
- Quickly pressing left, then left again, then fire will cause the gun to fire a grappling hook.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Wrath Of The Blam - If the player has Tear Jerker, Tear Jerker is replaced with a crying bullet head that can only fire in cardinal directions.
- The grappling hook can be used to steal items from shops.
- The chest spawned may be a Mimic.
- The chest that the Directional Pad spawns cannot be harmed by enemies or bosses.
- The chest can still be spawned in a blessed run.
- The control inputs for both the Fireball and the Grappling Hook may not work on console.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The inputs required to make the special shots are based on famous special attacks from fighting game series:
- The Fireball is the "Hadouken" attack performed by character Ryu in Street Fighter.
- The Grappling Hook is the rope spear attack performed by character Scorpion in Mortal Kombat; this attack is referenced in the entry description.
- Upon reloading, your character inputs the directional pad part of the Konami Code.
- The "Wrath Of The Blam" synergy is a reference to the "Wrath Of The Lamb" DLC for The Binding Of Isaac.
