The Jack 'O Lantern Launcher has a base 10% critical strike chance as opposed to the usual 4%.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- 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.
- 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, or 420 ticks.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- With relatively cheap ammo, this can easily turn into a replacement for the Grenade Launcher if the player uses non-destructive rockets.
- It is especially useful for close encounters with large numbers of enemies.
