What does the Stuffed Star do in Enter The Gungeon?
The Stuffed Star is a B-rank active item that grants temporary invincibility from incoming enemy bullets in Enter the Gungeon.
While it does provide invincibility, you will also be slightly knocked back whenever you’re hit by incoming enemy bullets. The Stuffed Star does not negate damage taken from falling or by fire traps.
Is the Stuffed Star a good item in Enter The Gungeon?

The Stuffed Star also has three Synergies that it shares with three other items in Enter the Gungeon.
Best Synergy for the Stuffed Star in Enter The Gungeon
The Stuffed Star has three Synergies with three other guns/items in Enter the Gungeon – Double Rainbow, Softshell, and Star Friends.
The Double Rainbow Synergy between the Stuffed Star and the Unicorn Horn will give you a 5 rainbow beam attack whenever Stuffed Star is active.
The beam attack will fire from all directions and will look very similar to the Unicorn Horn’s beams.
With the Stuffed Star and the Brick Breaker in your inventory, the Softshell Synergy will become active.
Softshell will cause the player to fire Brick Breaker shells in random directions while Stuffed Star is active.

Star Friends will give you the ability to fire max-level Polaris shots (71.6 DPS) while Stuffed Star is active.
How to Use the Stuffed Star in Enter The Gungeon?
The Stuffed Star is an active item, which means you have to press or tap your active item keybind in Enter the Gungeon to activate the item.
Using the Stuffed Star is a fuss-free affair. Simply activate the item whenever you feel like you won’t be able to dodge a series of incoming bullets while clearing rooms in the Gungeon.
Most of the Stuffed Star’s Synergies such as Double Rainbow and Softshell provide passive effects as well. All you really need to do is activate the Stuffed Star to activate these effects.
The Stuffed Star is a very good item whenever you can get your hands on it in the Gungeon.
More experienced players, however, will not find the item very useful since they can easily make up for the item’s invincibility buff by dodge rolling and advanced movement.
On the other hand, beginners who are just getting started with their Gungeon journey will find the item very useful as a breather tool that can grant them extra time to regroup and rearm in the Gungeon.
