Animation of the Egg Cannon. Note the Bunny being spawned upon impact of the fourth shot, and immediately being killed by the Skeleton.

The Egg Cannon is a ranged weapon that has a 50% chance to be dropped by Lepus. It uses bullets for ammo, but fires projectiles that resemble Suspicious Looking Eggs. Because of this, bullets like the Cursed Bullet have no effect on the resulting projectiles.

The eggs have a small chance to spawn a Bunny (on a Blood Moon, a Corrupt Bunny) or a Bird on impact. They are also affected by gravity (no matter the ammo), but they can travel long distances.

The Egg Cannon cannot be reforged, and therefore cannot have modifiers.


  • The tooltip "To kill a goblin you need to break a few eggs" is based on the proverb "To make an omelette you need to break a few eggs", which was originally French: "On ne saurait faire d'omelette sans casser des œufs". It means that in order to achieve something, some sacrifices or mistakes are inevitable.
  • The Egg Cannon is very similar in name and design to the Star Cannon.
