This striking handgun was forged hundreds of years ago by a forgotten gunsmith. Though its power has weakened, it occasionally recalls its former might.

Vorpal Gun is a gun that has a chance to fire a critical shot which deals 100 damage. The chance to fire a critical shot increases with coolness.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Synergy.png Critcaliber - If the player also has Bullet Idol, after taking damage with the gun held, the next Vorpal Gun shot is guaranteed to be a critical shot.
  • Entering a room with the Box and firing the Vorpal Gun while undetected guarantees a critical hit.
  • Like several other guns such as the 38 Special, it can be fired rapidly after dodge rolling.
  • Critical hits do not travel like normal bullets, but instead instantly strike the closest enemy in the cursor's direction regardless of intervening obstacles.
  • Vorpal Gun along with the Yari Launcher and the Makeshift Cannon can bypass boss DPS caps as critical hits ignore the cap.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The word 'Vorpal' is a nonsense word coined by Lewis Carrol in his nonsense poem 'Jabberwocky'. It describes a blade which is supposedly very sharp.
  • This gun is also a reference to an artifact type called "Vorpal" from Dungeons & Dragons, that upon a roll of natural 20 severs the head of those it strikes, in most cases instantly killing them.
