The plunger is an object appearing in Chapter 1 and a weapon used in Chapter 3 and 4 of Bendy and the Ink Machine.


The plunger appears to be a used standard model. It is seen with marks along the bottom.


Obviously, it is used to unclog toilets but is not used this way in-game. It is used when solving the valve panel puzzles. Its usage is similar to the axe and Gent pipe, but even weaker, as it can be used to kill the Searchers and the "Butcher Gang" enemies (Piper, Fisher, and Striker). In which, it took more hits than the previous two weapons. There are plungers in some chapters, but cannot be used.


Chapter 1: Moving Pictures

The plunger is first seen in the boarded toilet of the Art Department, Henry can't enter the room and even by using hack, the plunger is unobtainable.

Chapter 3: Rise and Fall

The plunger is first seen at the beginning from the safe house, where it is found from the restroom area. Although Henry is not able to obtain it.

Later on, it is used for completing the puzzle for "Alice" where Henry needs to find five valve cores.

Chapter 4: Colossal Wonders

The plunger reappeared in the fourth chapter as a secret item used in the battle against "Boris".. To get it, first power up the Haunted House. Then return to the Maintenance department; where the Projectionist was. Go upstairs and open the chest to the left of the lever and take the wheel inside.

Later, after the battle against "Boris" has started, interact with the selection wheel on the mini Ink Machine to replace it. Henry can now select the plunger to be created instead of the Gent Pipe but defeating "Boris" is much harder with it.


  • The plunger is worn by the enemy Piper as a peg-leg for the right leg.
  • The plunger is the only known weapon that will not leave any hit marks on walls or other obstacles, since the suction cup is literally made out of rubber. However, there is an error making the plunger cause hit-marks on the barrels upon hitting them similarly to the Gent pipe, pipe wrench, Tommy Gun, and the syringe.

  • The leaked image of the plunger was uploaded by theMeatly on Twitter while Chapter 3 was under development.[1]

  • Completing the chapter with the plunger will unlock the "Unlikely Victory" achievement.
