Input Output
When this gun runs out of ammo, it is destroyed, creating a chest.

This pad was once used as the summons for an ancient convocation of wizards. It is crusted from years of use, notably Back, Back, Low Punch.

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]

  • 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 controls are more strict for the Fireball than for the Grappling Hook, with the Fireball you must hold the first input for the command for a fraction of a second instead of tapping it, whereas with the Grappling Hook you can tap all of the inputs and it will work every time.
  • The chest can still be spawned in a blessed run.

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.
