The Loot Bag is a C-rank passive item in Enter the Gungeon that doubles money rewards from killing enemies and payments from the Sell Creep. The item was introduced in a PAYDAY 2 crossover event.
However, the Loot Bag has a negative effect that will cause the player to drop a random amount of money relative to 15-30% of the player’s current money when taking damage. The money dropped from taking damage is capped at 120.
The Loot Bag can be a good item or a bad one depending on the player’s skill level.
In general, the Loot bag can help players amass a considerable amount of money in-game by killing enemies and taking payments from Sell Creep but can cause the player to lose money if they take too many hits in-game.
Having the Loot Bag will also increase the player’s chances of finding other PAYDAY 2 items such as the Clown Mask and the Drill.
Initially, the Loot Bag only has a 5% chance to appear in the shop. However, if the player has the Biggest Wallet achievement unlocked, the Loot Bag can be purchased in the shop for 9999 bronze shells.
Fortunately, there are two ways to get the Loot Bag in Enter the Gungeon.
The first method through stealing the item from the shop. The player can do this by using any of the twelve items that give the player the ability to steal in-game:
- Aged Bell
- Chaff Grenade
- Charm Horn
- Directional Pad (grappling hook_
- Explosive Decoy
- Grappling Hook
- Grey Mauser
- Smoke Bomb
- Ring of Ethereal Form
- The Predator
Alternatively, players can force the shopkeeper to close his shop instead by firing a gun in the shop, failing to steal an item, or by luring the Lord of the Jammed into the shop.
The Loot Bag does not have any traditional Synergy with other items in Enter the Gungeon. It does, however, compliment the Clown Mask, as having both items will give the Clown Mask an additional familiar.
The Loot Bag is a passive item in Enter the Gungeon, which means that players only need to have the item in their inventory to activate the item’s effects.
The Loot Bag is only as good as the player’s ability to avoid taking damage in Enter the Gungeon. The better the player is at dodging incoming bullets, the more money they can get from killing enemies in-game.
The Loot Bag’s double money rewards are undoubtedly nice to have, but players will have to be extra careful not to take damage from enemies with the Loot Bag in their inventory or they risk losing money as well.
The good news is that players can pick up any dropped money by walking over them. The dropped money will disappear after a short time, so players will have to be quick in collecting them.
Overall, the Loot Bag is a passive item that literally rewards player skill in Enter the Gungeon. The better the player is at killing enemies while dodging damage, the greater the bonus money they can get from the Loot Bag bonus.
