Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Allows any chest or locked door to be opened without using a key.
  • Increases curse by 1 while held.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Synergy.png Akey Breaky - If the player has the AKEY-47, the AKEY-47 receives a damage boost, infinite ammo, changes in appearance to resemble a Shelleton, and can no longer open locks by shooting at them.
  • Synergy.png Key Witness - If the player has Master of Unlocking, guns will periodically fire an AKEY-47 shot.
  • Can't be used to open the hatch to the Resourceful Rat's Lair or Rat Chests.
  • Although it opens chests and locked doors for free, purchasing from Flynt still costs keys.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • UnusedSynergy.png Unused: Heart Unlocket - If the player has Heart Locket, it grants an extra heart container.
  • This item's name is a portmanteau of Shelleton, a demon found in the Gungeon, and Skeleton Key, a type of master key reduced to its essential parts.
    • Given the demonic connotations of Shelletons within the Gungeon, it may also be a reference to The Elder Scrolls' Skeleton Key, a demonic artifact capable of unlocking any lock.
