Shooty Gnome is a type of Gnome and an enemy in the mode Infinity Time and in the Trials of Gnomus. It is different from the basic Gnome that it carries a ray gun attached to a backpack as its weapon, and prefers to attack its target from a distance. Shooty Gnomes are introduced in the 2nd level, and are the 2nd most common gnome in the game.

Shooty Gnomes attack by shooting quick bursts of 3-6 blue blaster bolts from their ray guns, similar to the Engineer. The blaster bolts travel in a steep parabolic arc which culminates on the player's current location. After each burst, there is an 8 second delay during which the Shooty Gnome doesn't attack. Their behavior is comparable to the Cactus in some ways.


  • Shooty Gnomes can be found patrolling in the main area of the Trials of Gnomus.
  • There is a rare glitch involving this Gnome and a Gnome Floatie. After the player beats a Gnome Floatie, the Shooty Gnome may freeze in place after spawning and will start shooting an endless stream of blaster bolts at nothing for no apparent reason.

The aforementioned Gnome glitch. The Gnomes affected by the glitch are completely non-functional and are essentially harmless to the player.
