"Great coverage with average damage. Aim backward for maximum range."

Roundabout is a powerful weapon obtained from Porkrind's Emporium. It is one of the last non-DLC weapons to appear.


It fires a boomerang-like projectile that moves in the direction it is fired for a moment, but proceeds backwards for a long distance at a much higher velocity. It has a turquoise color and looks like a slotted ring. Best used when firing backwards or fleeing obstacles and to set up damage, this is the second option to chaser for bosses players want to focus on dodging as you still have to line with the boss most of the time, but it deals way more damage. In the game's code, this weapon is called 'boomerang'.

EX: Jumbo Rebound - Launches a larger, thicker and closed version of the standard shot that will try to go back to the player. You can dodge it and it will chase you until all seven hits are used up or it touches the player again, there is a glitch that one extra hit will be counted to start the count down so eight hits worth of damage can be dealt in total.


  • In single player mode, a bug in the Roundabout's EX allows it to deal 40 damage instead of the intended 35.
    • A similar bug is present when playing co-op, which causes the Roundabout's EX to disappear after dealing 10 damage, instead of 17.5 damage.
  • Prior to version 1.3.3, the Roundabout contained currently unused frames of animation. In previous versions, a couple of full-circle frames of the Roundabout were used. This is no longer the case and the reason is unknown.
