To hit a specific object, aim at the square it's on.

The fixed device is a Gnome contraption which is used in the Mourning's End Part I quest to shoot dye on Farmer Brumty's sheep. It requires a Ranged level of 60 to wield. It is carried on the shoulder with both hands. It uses dyed toads as ammo, which players make by filling ogre bellows with any dye (except orange, pink and purple), then using the bellows on a swamp toad. Only one toad may be placed in the device at a time, and the device can only be wielded when filled with ammo. Its only attack modes are "Aim and fire", which the player uses to fire the toads at the sheep, and "Kick" which, as its name implies, is a basic kicking attack.

If lost, players can re-obtain a broken device and ask the gnome prisoner to fix it. This will require more leather, toad crunchies and another magic log. He will still do this after the quest is complete.

Post-quest[edit | edit source]

After Mourning's End Part I is complete, players can still use the Fixed device as usual, firing it at anyone and anything they wish. Players wishing to use this item for an extended amount of time can collect as many dyed toads as they want. It is also easier to use the device if a player has two of them: one to wield and one to keep in the inventory. This makes things easier because using a toad on the device in the player's inventory will also load the device on the player's shoulder, allowing it to be fired over and over without taking it off after each shot.

Date Changes

The "Empty" and "Wield" options were switched so Wield is now first.

It is now much easier to aim the toad cannon and hit the sheep in Mourning's End Pt. 1 in resizable mode.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The fixed device looks similar to a bazooka.
  • This item gives no Attack or Defence bonuses, so it can be brought to Entrana.
  • The Event rpg introduced in 2014 was a nod to this weapon's unique appearance. The Event RPG has since become a staple weapon among pures, specifically 1 attack pures, due to its unique attack speed of 3, resulting in more damage per second than iron weaponry.
