Enter the Gungeon has 130 guns, and they're not done yet

Enter the Gungeon 2

I got to play Enter the Gungeon at PAX East on Sunday, but given my first-timer skill level, it was more rewarding to watch Dodge Roll co-founder Brent Sodman deftly avoid bullets and demonstrate his accuracy with some of Gungeon's more unusual weapons. There are already 130 guns in the game, and Sodman says they hope to have "somewhere between 200 and 230" at release. My favorite was also his favorite: a gun that shoots bees. It might only be improved if it were a dog with bees in its mouth (opens in new tab).

I talk to Sodman in the video above, where he describes some other guns of note and tells that they're "targeting September" for release.

Keep an eye out for our ASUS ROG G751 (opens in new tab) laptop giveaway soon—we collected signatures from everyone we interviewed at PAX East for a one-of-a-kind prize.

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
