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 round of Infinity Time, 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.


A Shooty Gnome has a total of 170 health.
