Ammonomicon Entry
This gun adapts.

While some have disputed the claim that a gun can change shape or adapt to its new environment within the Gungeon, this weapon appears to be irrefutable proof of the phenomenon. Since its discovery, the number of self-proclaimed gunvolution deniers has increased by 4%.

Evolver is a gun introduced in A Farewell to Arms. The gun evolves with every 5 unique enemy types the player kills. This changes its appearance, modifies its stats, and refills its ammo. The six evolutions, in order, are: amoeba, sponge, flatworm, snail, frog, and dragon.

  • The amoeba fires round projectiles that deal 6 damage.
  • The sponge fires sponge-shaped projectiles that deal 8.5 damage.
  • The flatworm fires round projectiles that deal 11.5 damage.
  • The snail fires a spread of three spiked snail shells that deal 11.5 damage each.
  • The frog emits a red tongue which latches onto the nearest enemy, similar to the Abyssal Tentacle.
  • The dragon fires a blue flame projectile which starts off slow and accelerates, dealing 37.5 damage. In this stage, the Evolver's maximum ammo drops to 150.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Synergy.png Natural Selection - If the player also has Irradiated Lead, Monster Blood or Big Boy, the gun evolves after every 3 unique enemy types.
  • Synergy.png The Powerhouse of the Cell - If the player also has Antibody, the Evolver evolves one stage.
    • Deactivating the synergy by dropping Antibody will devolve Evolver one stage.
    • Due to the ammo refill from evolving, dropping Antibody and picking it up again will give the player an unlimited supply of ammo for the Evolver.
  • Enemies do not need to be killed by Evolver for it to evolve.
  • If the player has Backup Gun, during the frog form, both frog tongues will home in on the same enemy, effectively doubling damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The flavor text "Tamagunchi" is a reference to the digital pets Tamagotchi.
  • The gun's description is a reference to real life evolution denial. In this phenomena, some groups of people deny the existence of evolution for its supposed lack of concrete evidence.
  • The synergy Synergy.png The Powerhouse of the Cell is a reference to the metaphor that the mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell. More specifically, the phrase, "the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell" was a meme for some time, owing in part to it being used in a viral image criticizing the educational quality of the school system; this is also thematically similar to the anti-intellectual stance of denial described within its entry.
