Powerups are temporary boosts in Exit the Gungeon that spawn at random in the Elevators. They typically bear the appearances and effects of different passive and active items from Enter and Exit the Gungeon. Since active items do not exist in Exit the Gungeon, powerups are the only way to attain certain effects.

Powerups last different lengths, and are of varying usefulness.

Items That Interact With Powerups

Certain items interact with Powerups, making them more viable.

Icon Name Interaction
Busted Television.png Blown Fuse Triggers a blank effect upon collecting a powerup.
Dog.png Dog The dog will automatically collect powerups on the behalf of the player.


  • Powerups that copy an item will not appear until said item is unlocked.
  • While uncommon, it is possible for certain powerups (such as Magic Sweet) to appear even when the player already has the passive item equivalent. Whether or not these effects stack is unknown.
  • Powerups that copy passive items are often stronger than the item they copy. For example, Homing Bullets grants much stronger homing (so much so that some weapons will curve their bullets to hit enemies opposite the direction of fire) and Hot Lead will make ALL bullets burn enemies.
  • 'Blessing of Kaliber' is the only powerup that is not based on a passive or active item from Enter or Exit the Gungeon.
  • Certain powerups based on active items from Enter the Gungeon do not match the effects of their predecessors precisely.
    • The Potion of Lead Skin Powerup does not reflect enemy bullets back at their owners upon their contact with the player.
    • The Aged Bell Powerup doesn't stop time, merely slowing it.
      • This effect is more akin to the Bullet Time item in Enter the Gungeon than the Aged Bell.
