Damage type(s) and Attack Speed influence combat. The attack style of the weapon in relation to the combat environment is also important. Consider both when choosing weapons to wield.


Boosts and Penalties are both considered "abilities" in general. Many items don't have any special abilities. See the Abilities page for details. Some enemies are immune to certain status conditions - see individual status pages for details.

This item doesn't have any special abilities.

The Proto Gun is a 0-star handgun.


A compact firearm issued to all Spiral Knight recruits.


Basic Attack

Left: Normal shot, Right: Charged shot

Fires a ball of energy up to 8 squares away. The projectiles move at medium speed and the user may fire up to 3 shots before reloading.
There is no recoil when using the basic attack and the user can move at approximately half speed while firing.

Charge Attack

Fires a bigger ball of energy that travels up to 9 squares and explodes on impact, harming anything within a radius of 0.5 square.
The projectile has the same speed as the basic attack but will knockback monsters.
The recoil from the shot will push the user back 2/3 of a square.

  • Note: Having recoil means that the user will be momentarily unable to move when unleashing the charge attack. Therefore, care should be taken when firing.

Below table shows the approximate charge time in milliseconds:
