Knife Shield is an active item.
Effects[edit | edit source]
- Creates a ring of 8 knives around the player that damage enemies and block enemy bullets. Knives vanish after taking enough damage.
- If used again before Knife Shield is recharged, the knives are launched forward.
- Each knife deals 30 damage.
- Increases Curse by 1 while held.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Fightknives - If the player has Fightsabre, activating Knife Shield while holding Fightsabre makes the knives reflect enemy bullets before getting destroyed. This synergy effect remains even if you switch weapons (provided you were holding Fightsabre upon activation).
- Running Blades - If the player has Deck4rd, killing an enemy with Deck4rd has a high chance to spawn a knife.
- Throw All Daggers - If the player is holding Excaliber, Knife Shield generates two layers of knives upon use.
- The knives do not carry on between floors, and disappear once the player enters a new floor.
- Knife Shield can be activated while the player already has knives, adding another 8 knives to the ring.
Bug[edit | edit source]
- If the player uses a teleporter with knives active, it is possible to damage and kill enemies in rooms between the two teleporting points, as the knives do not teleport; they travel very quickly between the two points.
