Reload to clear the air of bullets. This abominable weapon angers the Jammed.

The weapon of a mythical hero, said to have mastered the Gungeon. Reloading initiates a defensive flurry of slashes, each positioned to carve a bullet from the air.

Excaliber is a gun that fires a burst of three piercing sword projectiles. Reloading swings the sword, destroying nearby bullets and damaging nearby enemies. Increases curse by 2.5 while held.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Synergy.png Buster Gun - If the player has RPG, Excaliber fires three or four shots in a cone whenever it is reloaded.
  • Synergy.png Snicker-snack - If the player has Vorpal Bullets, Excaliber fires a spread of 3 homing shots that deal 20% less damage.
  • Synergy.png Throw All Daggers - If the player has Knife Shield, it generates two layers of knives upon use.
  • If reloaded with a partially emptied magazine, the sword swing will deal approximately 27.5 damage.
  • If reloaded with an empty magazine, the sword swing will deal 80 damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The fact that the weapon increases Curse while being carried stems from the Gungeon rejecting melee weapons.
  • The Snicker-snack synergy is a reference to Lewis Carroll's poem Jabberwocky.
  • The Buster Gun synergy is likely a reference to the Buster Sword, a weapon from the Final Fantasy RPG Series.
  • The gun's name and sword-like appearance are a reference to the Excalibur, the sword associated with King Arthur, given to him by the Lady of the Lake.
    • The name of the weapon is a pun on Excalibur and caliber, the internal diameter of the barrel of a gun or of a projectile.
    • The weapon's quote is a reference to T. H. White's work The Once and Future King, which is largely about King Arthur's life.
  • The gun's appearance when held by the character is likely a reference to the Qualta Blade carried by Ka D'Argo in Farscape.
    • Specifically, the stylized grip that splits off from the stock/handle, and the way the sword splits down the middle to reveal the rifle.
