Jealous Weapon
Grows more powerful with each room cleared.

This distrustful gun has gained sentience. As with all intelligent weapons, he should be treated with respect and care.

Gunther is a gun that grows stronger with each room cleared. It has infinite ammo and does not reveal secret walls.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Gunther has 3 stages of behavior, depending on how many rooms have been cleared.

  • First Stage: Fires piercing bullets at 6 damage.
  • Second Stage: Besides piercing, bullets deal 9 damage and bounce twice.
  • Third Stage: Bullets deal 12 damage and home in on enemies instead of bouncing.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • As of the Supply Drop Update, dropping Gunther will no longer reset his affinity to the first stage.
  • Similar to other guns with infinite ammo, Gunther cannot be combined with other guns using Duct Tape.
  • The bullets of this gun can pierce through flipped tables.
  • Gunjurers cannot absorb Gunther's bullets at stage 3.
  • If you roll and spam the fire button right after ending your roll you will shoot all of your bullets much faster.
  • The bullets of this gun ignores the “Unfriendly Fire” modifier in challenge mode.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

First stage:

  • "My previous owner cleared that room faster."
  • "Next time, aim a little better."
  • "This is going to be a long day."
  • "Well, you didn't die."
  • "yawn"
  • "Why am I here?"

Second stage:

  • "...well done."
  • "Not bad for a (random insult)."
  • "That was alright, I guess."
  • "Decent use of bullets."
  • "I'd give that a C... minus."
  • "Maybe I was wrong about you."

Third stage:

  • "We make a pretty good team."
  • "Top-notch work."
  • "Past, here we come!"
  • "Phew! That was exciting."
  • "Yeah!"
  • "Go team Gungeon!"

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Quote "Go team Gungeon!" may be a reference to the Venture Bros. catch phrase "Go team Venture!"
  • Gunther is a pun on Gun and the common Germanic name Günther.
  • When shooting a wall, Gunther's bullets will leave hitmarkers that resemble the letters N, R, and Φ, which also happen to be the same attacks that Bookllets use.
  • When Gunther's magazine is fully empty, the face on the gun will appear to be sleeping.
  • Gunther has two reload animations. When reloading a partially empty magazine, the character flips him end over end. When reloading a fully empty magazine, the character tilts Gunther on his side and shakes him.
  • Gunther may be a reference to the Gallows Dodger, a special weapon in Saints Row: Gat out of Hell that also has infinite ammo, gets stronger by killing enemies, and talks to its user.
  • Gunther's appearance resembles that of Vivec from the game The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.
