Barnacle is a skill which summons a ceiling turret to shoot at enemies while the player is nearby.

Details[edit | edit source]

  • Special Effects:
    • Deploys a turret where the projectile gets close to a ceiling, platform or high wall. It has a height limit and anywhere over that, the Barnacle will instead suspend itself with purple balloons.
      • Turret deals damage once every 0.38 seconds with a base DPS of 52.
      • The turret can be destroyed and despawns after 9 seconds, but enemies cannot target the turret.
      • Only one turret per Barnacle skill can be active at a time - attempting to deploy another turret will destroy the first one.
      • Turret stops operation if the player moves too far away and resumes operation once the player comes back within range.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The name and design of Barnacle are directly taken from an enemy in the Half-Life series of videogames, although they are ultimately different. Barnacles in Half-Life have long tongues that they use to snatch smaller entities before munching them with their jaws while the DC Barnacle is green (instead of crimson), has a single eye, and launches ranged attacks with solid projectiles. The sprite still shows it's red tongue, however.
