Weapons are an item used in BattleBlock Theater.


A Weapon is unlocked by collecting Yarn. Bring 5 Yarn to the security Cat Guard in the Gift Shop inside the portal. In exchange, he will bestow a random Weapon for the player. Weapons can be equipped on the Character Customization screen.

Each weapon has its own merits and uses. Obviously, most Weapons' purposes are to damage enemy (such as igniting or blowing others up). However, some others can be used to help traverse a level, such as providing a platform or a large jump. These weapons tend to be much safer and helpful for completing a level, but are virtually useless on modes where you must actually kill others. Lastly, there is the miscellaneous group. These Weapons are vastly different from every other weapon, as they provide benefits no other group does. This includes reflecting/absorbing projectiles or freezing the opponent. These weapons tend to be hit or miss; some are good, some are bad.
