What does the Book of Chest Anatomy do in Enter The Gungeon?
The Book of Chest Anatomy is a C-rank passive item that can improve the rewards given by broken chests in Enter the Gungeon.
The Book of Chest Anatomy removes Junk and Explosions from the destruction table and replaces it with Pickups such as Keys, Hearts, and Ammo. In addition, the passive item can also improve the quality of dropped items.
Players can obtain the Book of Chest Anatomy by successfully attacking a Mimic before they have a chance to attack.
The Book of Chest Anatomy is a good item in Enter the Gungeon, as it improves the quality of loot that players can obtain from chests.
The Book of Chest Anatomy also features a very nifty Synergy with the D-rank gun “Lower Case r”. More on that in the next section.
There is only one Synergy for the Book of Chest Anatomy in Enter the Gungeon – Research.
With the Lower Case r gun and the Book of Chest Anatomy in the player’s inventory, a Synergy between the two called “Research” will become active.
With the Research Synergy, the Lower Case r gains the ability to unlock chests and locked doors around the Gungeon.
The Book of Chest Anatomy is a passive item in Enter the Gungeon, which means that players only need to have the item in their inventory to use its effects.
Players don’t have to do anything special to get better loot from Chests through the Book of Chest Anatomy. However, it is worth noting that when the player reveals the contents of a chest with a content-revealing Synergy, the chances of the revealed item being dropped will increase significantly.
On its own, the Book of Chest Anatomy is a decent item that increases the chances of getting better loot from Chests. However, some characters such as the Robot might find the Book of Chest Anatomy counter-productive, as the passive item removes Junk from Chests – a vital item that gives characters such as The Robot bonus damage.
Nevertheless, the Book of Chest Anatomy offers improved quality of dropped items while its Synergy with the Lower Case r – one of the better Synergies in the game – can unlock chests and locked doors around the Gungeon, which are both very nice things to have for Gungeon runs.
