The Tentacle is a whip-like melee weapon. It propels the player towards the enemy in front, dealing a critical hit in the second part of the combo.

Details[]

  • Special Effects:
    • Pushes you forward on a successful strike with a wall or enemy.
    • Deals a high-damage critical hit if you attack while being grappled.
    • If you attack while too close to an enemy, you will kick the enemy instead.
  • Breach Bonus: 0 / 0.5 / 1
    • Base Breach Damage: 45 / 15 / 130 (45 / 36 / 260)
    • Base Breach DPS: 127 (257)
  • Combo Duration: 1.5 seconds
    • First Hit: 0.7 (0.3 + 0.1 + 0.3)
    • Second Hit: 0.4 (0.2 + 0.2 + 0)
    • Third Hit: 0.4 (0.1 + 0.3 + 0)

Notes[]

  • The initial hit is ranged, while the critical hit is melee, however this attack won't deal self-damage if you hit Thorny's back although the close range non-critical attack will.
  • Gives immunity to certain damage sources while grappling.
  • Second hit (critical) is slightly shorter than first one.

Trivia[]

  • Walking into a shop while equipping the Tentacle and the Vorpan Icon.pngVorpan will trigger a special interaction with the shop merchant.
    • This interaction is a reference to the animated launch trailer, where at the end of the video the Beheaded and Guillain are using the Vorpan to cook a tentacle.
