Drains will from foes.

An item to be held by a Gungeoneer. Can be used to weaponize stolen will against the holder's enemies.

Life Orb is a gun that fires purple lightning, which connects the player and the nearest enemy and deals damage consistently. After killing an enemy, a special icon appears above the player, and pressing the reload button performs a special attack that deals damage to every enemy in the room. The damage dealt is equal to the amount of damage Life Orb dealt to the last enemy killed with Life Orb; killing multiple enemies before reloading does not further increase damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item is likely a reference to the held item from the Pokemon series of the same name and similar appearance.
    • The weapon's functionality also roughly mirrors the item's frequent use in the Pokemon competitive meta. In Pokemon, Life Orb raises the damage of moves by 30%, but lowers the holder's HP by 10% each time a damaging move is used. A common tactic is to have a tanky Pokemon use the move Trick to swap its held Life Orb with its opponent's held item, rendering the damage up for the opponent negligible, but causing the opponent to take damage every time they attack. The Life Orb of Gungeon similarly "weaponizes the will of enemies".
  • "Your soul is mine" is a quote from Shang Tsung in Mortal Kombat.
