What does the Blast Helmet do in Enter The Gungeon?
The Blast Helmet is a D-rank passive item that decreases the radius of explosions that can hurt your Gungeoneer, provides immunity to contact damage, and increases the damage you deal when dodge-rolling into enemies to 9.
Blast Helmet also features four unique Synergies that it shares with other guns/items in the Gungeon. The Blast Helmet can be unlocked by rescuing the Ledge Goblin Multiple times.
Is the Blast Helmet a good item in Enter The Gungeon?
The Blast Helmet is a good item in Enter the Gungeon, mainly because of the enemy contact immunity it provides. Contact damage is one of the more common sources of damage in the Gungeon next to bullets, so having the ability to completely bypass contact damage will give you one less thing to worry about in the Gungeon.
In addition, the Blast Helmet increases dodge roll damage from 3 to 9, effectively tripling the amount of damage you can deal to enemies through dodge rolls.
Best Synergy for the Blast Helmet in Enter The Gungeon
The Blast Helmet features four Synergies in Enter the Gungeon – Blast Crown, Fightsabre Training, Nailed It, and Spelunker.
Blast Crown is a Synergy between the Crown of Guns and the Blast Helmet. Blast Crown gives the Crown of Guns a chance to fire explosives.
If you have the Fightsabre and the Blast Helmet in your inventory, the Fightsabre Training Synergy will become active.
Fightsabre Training will spawn an orbital that blocks enemy shots whenever you’re holding the Fightsabre.
Nailed It is a Synergy between the Nail Gun and the Blast Helmet in Enter the Gungeon.
The Nailed It Synergy will improve the Nail Gun’s bullets by increasing their size and giving them three times more damage.
If you have the Gunboots and the Blast Helmet in your inventory, the Spelunker Synergy between these two items will become active.
Spelunker will add yet another dynamic to dodge rolling by producing explosions behind your Gungeoneer.
How to Use the Blast Helmet in Enter The Gungeon?
The Blast Helmet is a passive item in Enter the Gungeon, which means picking up the item in the Gungeon will give you its full effects instantly.
Blast Helmet will give you the ability to dodge roll into enemies and deal damage to them in the process. While the damage from dodge rolling with Blast Helmet is negligible, not having to worry about taking damage when coming into contact with enemies around the Gungeon is a godsend.
Blast Helmet should help you get more from using short-range guns like shotguns since you don’t have to worry about the possibility of incurring damage from coming into contact with enemies at close range.
Lastly, the decreased explosion radius will come in handy whenever there is explosion-based ammo flying around rooms in the Gungeon.
The Blast Helmet is a good passive item that will help you worry less about coming into contact with enemies around rooms in the Gungeon. Because of the Blast Helmet’s bonus dodge roll damage, you can even use dodge rolls to your advantage and deal additional damage to enemies around the Gungeon.
