Say hello to my little friend!

Gnome Gun is a Tier 4 Unique Weapon. It most closely resembles the Aegisalt Pistol except that it is a 2-Handed weapon.

The Gnome Gun can be found as a very rare drop from high-tier chests in Dungeons on Tier 3 and 4 Planets.

The weapon's long description reads as follows: "Say hello to my little friend!"

It fires a stream of rainbow colored energy that damages all enemies that contact it. The stream has a base power of 5, and damage is inflicted every 0.2 seconds to enemies touching the rainbow, resulting in a base damage per second of 25. While in use, this weapon drains 30 energy per second. Its alt-fire plays an animation of the gnome flailing his arms and shaking his head around. (BUG: Sometimes while holding the alt-fire and switching hands the flailing animation doesn't stop, even after firing the animation will continue)

When upgraded at a Weapon Upgrade Anvil to tier 6, the stream base power increases to 7, resulting in a new base damage per second of 35. Additionally, the Gnome Gun's appearance changes to the one shown below.

Apart from the addition of a gold star to the name, no other changes occur as a result of the upgrade.


This weapon is a reference to Season 1 Episode 1 of Gravity Falls ending credits which showed a gnome barfing rainbows. This in turn was a reference to the popular 2006 internet meme for puking rainbows.

This weapon's flavor text is a reference to a quote by the character Tony Montana in the 1983 crime film Scarface.


  • Cheerful Giraffe: Changed appearance (removed small gun), added squirm animation and reworked beam mechanics
