Synergies[]

  • Combining with Grappling Hook IconGrappling Hook is an easy high damage crit enabler as it stuns and brings front-facing enemies closer to get hit more easily.

Location[]

The Vorpan can only be obtained after playing Dead Cells for a few runs. Once it becomes available, a special interaction with the shop merchant will trigger on any given level until it is properly unlocked by the player.

Notes[]

  • The critical hit cannot be applied to Spawners, Protectors, Shockers, Impalers, Maskers, Conjunctivius, or the Giant, due to the fact that they have no frontside.
    • Similarly, the same problem occurs with the Assassin's Dagger IconAssassin's Dagger, as these enemies don't have a backside either.
  • Because of its short range, it is crucial to managing crowds to not get swarmed by enemies, as this weapon struggles against fights with many targets.

Trivia[]

  • This weapon is a reference to the animated release trailer, where the Beheaded fights off enemies using a frying pan by hitting them in the face with it. It was the last weapon provided to him.
    • The flavor text is a reference to the title of the trailer, "Kill. Die. Learn. Repeat.".
  • The weapon's name is likely a portmanteau of the words "vorpal" and "pan".
  • Walking into a shop while equipping the Vorpan and the Tentacle IconTentacle 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 a merchant use the Vorpan to cook a tentacle.

  • 1.4: Introduced.
  • 3.0: Added the Legendary Affix "Fire on Hit".
