A strange egg found in the Gungeon. High in protein.

Weird Egg is a single-use active item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Using the egg while having empty hearts will restore the player to full health.
  • Dropping the egg and shooting it will break the egg, either spawning a random item or gun, or spawning a harmless slug-like yolk creature that follows the player around until they kill it. The player will only receive an item or gun after carrying the egg through a certain amount of floors.
    • Going through 2 consecutive floors will cause the egg to start hopping slightly and drop a C Quality Item.png or B Quality Item.png tier item or gun when broken.
    • After 4 consecutive floors, the egg will start bouncing and drop an A Quality Item.png or 1S Quality Item.png tier item or gun when broken.
    • The yolk creature can be jammed and will damage the player on contact.
  • Dropping the egg into any source of fire will spawn an Ancient Serpent.
    • There is a long delay before the serpent spawns; a room with active enemies may well destroy the egg before it hatches.
    • Like the serpent in the Resourceful Rat's Lair, the hatched serpent must be fed to awaken it.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Synergy.png Phoenix Up - If the player has Phoenix, summons a phoenix companion that fires at enemies.
  • Synergy.png Two Eggs Over Easy - If the player has The Scrambler, its homing shots cause poison.
  • Pits in the Forge don't count as sources of fire and the egg will be lost upon dropping it in.
  • Dropping the egg on green fire will break the egg and no serpent will appear.
  • This item will carry over to a handful of Gungeoneer pasts, excluding the Pilot's, the Hunter's and The Bullet's, and will be available as a pickup beside the Gungeoneer upon spawning instead of automatically being in their inventory.
  • During a Rainbow Run, if the egg appears out of the chest, shooting the egg and breaking it will cause the yolk creature to spawn and all other items to disappear after a short period of time. The player can choose an item before they disappear.
  • Carrying the Weird Egg into the Resourceful Rat's Lair will activate the egg

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item's function, appearance, and Ammonomicon description are all a reference to the Pokêmon series (or possibly the Yoshi series in appearance), where the player has to carry around an egg they receive for a certain number of steps before it will hatch.
  • The synergy Synergy.png Phoenix Up is possibly a reference to the Phoenix Down from the Final Fantasy series.
