Spelunky 2 items guide - best items to buy from shopkeeper

Spelunky 2 has a load of items, new and old.


Spelunky 2 will test your skill and patience, equipping you with nothing more than a whip, a few ropes, and a couple bombs. You’ll have the opportunity to pick up much more though, and some items are more useful than others.

Here’s all the items in Spelunky 2 and where to find them.

All Spelunky 2 items and locations

Most items can be purchased from the various shops throughout the world, but you can also find them in wooden boxes, hidden in walls, and earn them through sacrificing unconscious or dead enemies/allies on altars.

Here’s our in-progress list of all the items in Spelunky 2:

  • Rope pile - a stack of 3 ropes
  • Bomb bag - a stack of 3 bombs
  • Bomb box - a stack of 12 bombs
  • Paste - makes your bombs stick to surfaces
  • Spectacles - shows you gems within walls
  • Climbing Gloves - allows you to grab onto and climb walls
  • Pitcher’s Mitt - makes your throwing more powerful, letting everything travel in a straight line unaffected by gravity
  • Spring Shoes - increases your maximum jump height by one tile
  • Spike Shoes - kills all normal enemies when you jump on them once
  • Compass - shows you the direction of the exit
  • Parachute - automatically saves you from fall damage one time

  • Boomerang - hits baddies and comes back to you when thrown
  • Machete - can kill most enemies in one hit
  • Metal Shield - protects you from incoming damage, stronger than a normal shield
