Notes[edit | edit source]

A player firing the Jack 'O Lantern Launcher
  • The Weapon type is classified as Rocket by Shroomite Armor set bonuses.
  • Despite being explosive, it does not damage the player who fired the weapon. This can be extremely effective for close encounters with massive amounts of enemies.
  • With relatively cheap ammo, this can easily turn into a replacement for the Grenade Launcher if the player uses non-destructive rockets.
  • The explosive Jack 'O Lanterns are extraordinarily bouncy, as much as Spiky Balls, if not more, allowing for bouncing them up into crevices where normal grenades cannot reach.
  • The Jack 'O Lanterns last for about 7 seconds each.

History[edit | edit source]

  • 1.3.0.1: Damage increased from 60 to 65.
