The item screen showing all sub-weapons

Sub-Weapons are items which can be equipped alongside your Main Weapon. These are often projectiles which have unique attack patterns, useful for reaching enemies in tough spots, fighting Guardians, and in some cases are necessary to break walls/objects. Most Sub-Weapons rely on Ammo and can only be used if the player has enough ammunition in stock. Sub-Weapons can be enhanced by the Ring.

(To-do: List specific enemies which can be farmed for each type of ammo, and add any known pots/chests containing ammo)

Only one can be thrown at a time, and another cannot be thrown until the previous one has exploded. Can hit an enemy twice with one explosion. Up to 30 can be carried.

The Pistol holds 6 bullets (represented by the right number) and can only be reloaded with purchased Boxes of Ammunition (represented by the left number). Due to the high power of this sub-weapon, ammo is prohibitively expensive and cannot be found anywhere outside of shops. No limit to firing speed. Up to 3 boxes of ammunition can be carried.

BucklerEdit

Icon buckler
  • Location: Surface (G-4) - Buy from the shop for 10 coins.
  • Use: Press the sub-weapon button to hold out your shield. It will absorb a set number of enemy projectiles before breaking, after which a new one must be purchased. Reequipping the shield resets how much health it has. It is recommended to save your money and wait for the unbreakable Silver Shield.
  • In-Game Description: A shield that can block bullets from small enemies. It may break if used to block powerful attacks.

Silver ShieldEdit

Icon silvershield

  • Use: Press the sub-weapon button to hold out your shield. It will absorb a set number of projectiles before being knocked away, requiring you to press the sub-weapon button again, but it will not break. Reequipping the shield resets how much health it has. The amount of damage it can take before being knocked back is the same as the amount of damage the buckler can take before breaking.
  • In-Game Description: A shield that can block bullets from strong enemies.

Fake Silver ShieldEdit

Icon silvershield2
  • Location: Graveyard of the Giants (A-1) - Buy from shop for 100 coins.
  • Use: This is a fake and will break after use like the Buckler. It can withstand only one projectile of any kind before breaking, making it far worse than even the Buckler.
  • In-Game Description: A shield that can block bullets from strong enemies.

Angel ShieldEdit

Icon angelshield

Defeat Enlil at (A-4) to access (A-3), where a dais appears. Place a weight here, then defeat another Sub-Boss in the area to make two more daises appear in (A-3) (one at a time). Place weights accordingly to make the Angel Shield appear. The left dias appears every time an even number of Children of Tiamat has been killed. The right dias appears every time an odd number of Children of Tiamat has beed killed. Important: If you fail to place a weight on either of the two dias before defeating the remaining Children of Tiamat, the next daises will not appear and you will no longer be able to obtain the Angel Shield here. Instead, you will need to purchase it from the shop at Graveyard of the Giants (A-1) for 400 coins.

  • Use: Press the sub-weapon button to hold out your shield. It will absorb more powerful attacks from enemies than the Silver Shield and cannot be knocked away.
