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

Details[edit | edit source]

  • Effects:
    • Throws a projectile upward
    • Deploys a turret where the projectile gets close to a ceiling, platform or high wall or it starts floating if it doesn't encounter either.
      • Turret targets the nearest enemy in line of sight
      • Turret deals damage once every 0.38 seconds with a base DPS of 52
      • The turret can be destroyed, 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 pull you into their mouth with their low-hanging tongue, while Barnacles in Dead Cells work as ceiling turrets.
