Dodge Roll recently released its long-awaited Advanced Gungeons and Draguns expansion for Enter the Gungeon, the full patch notes for which are now available. The free update is pretty massive, and brings with it a plethora of fixes and improvements across all platforms.

Without further ado, check out the patch notes below:

Patch 2.0.0

New Features

  • New guns, items, enemies, shrines, NPCs, rooms, and secrets

  • Tons of new and powerful synergies – look for the blue arrow and improved item notification

  • New minibosses (Blockner’s Ghost and the all-new Fuselier)

  • New Spread Ammo box – adds a small amount of ammo to all equipped guns

  • Slide over tables by dodge rolling toward them!

  • Save hearts for later when at full health – pick them up at the new heart dispenser located at every floor entrance and shop (note: stored hearts are reset each floor!)

  • Added teleporters to more rooms (including chest rooms and exit rooms)

  • Turbo mode – delve into the Gungeon to find a new NPC who can enable this high-octane mode

  • Added a new gameplay option to increase movement speed when not in combat (for those who wanna go fast but don’t want to be shot at fast)

  • Added additional aim assist options (particularly for those who can’t or don’t like using the right stick)

  • Added Ultrawide support (set the graphics scaling to “Fast Scaling” or “Uniform Scaling”)

  • [Consoles] This update also includes the Payday items

Gameplay Changes/Improvements

  • Added a new loot profile which improves shop contents, increases room reward frequency, and tweaks item/chest drop rates to be more generous, particularly early in runs. This is enabled by default but can be changed in the options menu.

  • Replaced “key forcing” with tweaked key drop rates and guaranteed keys in the shops of the first two floors. There should no longer be any benefit to leaving a key uncollected.

  • Removed locked shops

  • Modified Robot balance (now receives casings for health up items and +1 armor for mastery tokens) [this is a buff on most platforms, but a reduction from what shipped on Switch]

  • Increased Hegemony credit drop rate, enabled credits to drop in shortcut runs, and added a credit reward for the first tutorial completion

  • Reduced the required kills on some of the longer Frifle hunts

  • Gave the smash tent and lost adventurer their own minimap icons

  • Added a new type of challenge for the Gunsling King

  • Glass Guon stones will no longer be stolen by the Resourceful Rat

  • Bullats can now drop casings if killed before they fire themselves

  • Charge guns can now be charged before entering a boss room and will keep their charge through the intro

  • Added an option to enable controller aim assist for beam weapons (formerly only worked on non-beam weapons)

  • Removed player-damage from several explosive items

  • Players now drop all items when killed in coop

  • Gave the Chaingunner a new attack with some range (watch out!)

  • Placed limits on boss attacks that leave the boss invulnerable for extended periods of time (High Priest and Cannonbalrog can each only use their immune attacks twice)

  • You may now receive a gun from the “shopkeeper” on taking the shortcut to the second floor, similar to the other shortcuts.

  • Skusket’s now spawn their bullets more slowly when the player is nearby (to reduce cases where the player takes damage immediately upon entering a room)

  • Reduced the effectiveness of player explosions destroying enemy bullets when many explosions are used rapidly

  • Sped up blobulon death animation speeds (to reduce the time you need to wait for them to split)

  • Made balancing changes to many guns and items (too many to list here)

  • Probably many other small things we’ve forgotten about!
