Unlockable Characters

How to Unlock The Cultist

This character begins unlocked but is not always playable. They do have their own story and Past Kill, although it doesn’t work the same way as the others.


“Unlock” Hint: You cannot play this character on your own, you will need the help of a friend.


Solution: The Cultist only appears as Player 2 when playing in Co-Op Mode.


Past Kill Hint: You probably noticed that the Blacksmith doesn’t give the Cultist the Bullet that can Kill the Past. Once again, you will need your friend to step in.


Solution: After defeating the High Dragun and Player 1 obtains the Gun that can Kill the Past from the chest, they can shoot the Cultist with it instead of themselves.



How to Unlock The Bullet

Unlocking this character will most likely require several trips through the Gungeon.


Unlock Hint 1: Before anything else, you need to have successfully killed the past of one of the first 4 characters.


Unlock Hint 2: This character will sometimes be encountered in the Gungeon! However, they are found with only 8-25% chance, more likely in the lower floors. Be careful not to mistake them for someone else, say an enemy. You don’t have to talk to them, but you’ll need to find them a few times.


Unlock Hint 3: Have you noticed that on occasion a specific “enemy” appears among the others, but does not attack you at all no matter what? Be sure to return the favor and spare them too. A few times, actually.


Unlock Hint 4: This specific “enemy” wears a red cape and wields a simple gun.


Unlock Solution: The character is a red caped bullet kin that appears alone or in a group. They are found with only 8-25% chance, more likely in the lower floors. They will run around but not attack the gungeoneers. Don’t attack them and wait until they teleport away. You will need to do this 5 times in total before the Bullet shows up in the Breach, “sleeping” at the left of the Pilot



How to Unlock The Robot

This character can be unlocked in a single run, even though it may take a few tries.


Unlock Hint 1: The character requires some (re-)assembly. The good news is that you only have 1 part to find. The bad news is you will also have to find someone to do the repairs.


Unlock Hint 2: The required part always spawns, and always in the same room, as a by-product of something you might have fixed before. This is not a room you need to visit much. The person to find can also be found always, and at the same place every time, although not on the same floor as the part.


Unlock Hint 3: Have you ever tried jumping after an elevator after it leaves? You don’t get damage, but you end up in a special room.


Unlock Hint 4: The first elevator shaft you can jump in contains some junk item(s) that may be of interest (not called “junk”). You may also run into someone trying to fix the elevator there (The Tinker). To find the junk item, you need to help the Tinker once.


Unlock Hint 5: Sadly, the Tinker character only fixes elevators, and not the robot. You will need to take the part you find to a very skilled craftsman.


Unlock Hint 6: Or perhaps, a craftswoman? Like one working deep within the gungeon?


Unlock Solution: Find the Busted Television in the first elevator room at Gungeon Proper, after unlocking the first shortcut. Take it to the Blacksmith in the Forge, who will fix the robot. This is of course, a challenge, given that the item will drop with every dodge roll. You may want to consider throwing it across pits and also not picking it up before clearing the Gungeon Proper.



How to Unlock The Paradox

Unlocking this character takes one run, if you find everything you need.


Unlock Hint 1: Before anything else, you need to have successfully killed the past of one of the first 4 characters.


Unlock Hint 2: As the name suggests, there is something uncanny about this character. It requires you to find and interact with something uncanny too (and then keep on playing a full run). It does not always appear and you may not realize that you can actually interact with it by pressing “e”.


Unlock Hint 3: If you’ve been to the Forge, you’ve seen this phenomena before. However, it is much rarer on other floors. It is anomalous, in fact, and that is why you can interact with it if you come across it on a higher floor. After you pick it up, you will know. You will need to carry it on you, all the way to the past…


Unlock Solution: As said in the official wiki page: The method to unlock the Paradox can only be accessed after killing at least one Past. In the Gungeon Proper, Black Powder Mine and the Hollow, there is a 20% chance that a cosmic rift will appear in a random room, which the player can walk into and interact with to receive a paradox effect. Killing the boss after the Dragun (like in the past) with the effect active will unlock The Paradox. Multiple cosmic rifts can appear in one run, and they can also appear during a Rainbow Run.



How to Unlock The Gunslinger

This character is perhaps the hardest to unlock.


Unlock Hint 1: You need to have unlocked a previous secret character AND a secret floor, which requires at the very least defeating the Dragun.


Unlock Hint 2: Unlocking the character involves messing with the laws of the universe, while already in an exceptionally arcane place…


Unlock Hint 3: You need to play as the Paradox, and go to the secret 6th Chamber…


Unlock Solution: Defeat the final boss in Bullet Hell as the Paradox to unlock this character.
