The Tommy Gun is an obtainable weapon from Chapter 3 of Bendy and the Ink Machine.


Modeled off from the real life version, the Tommy Gun (or formally known as the M1921 Thompson Submachine Gun, mostly used in the Prohibition Era by criminals) has an 18-round drum of ammunition. The gun itself is made from ink, as it melts back into ink normally if the steps to get it are not done or if the steps are not done properly.


The gun features the ability to stunlock every enemy but Ink Bendy, who is completely invulnerable to this gun along with any other weapons Henry uses. It is especially useful against the Projectionist. Holding down the right mouse button allows Henry to infinitely shoot instead of clicking it one by one.

The gun has an unlimited amount of bullets. However, when using the gun several times or so, it runs out of bullets and has to be reloaded by clicking the right mouse button at least four times.


After completing Physical Alice errand where Henry kills all three Butcher Gang enemies, Physical Alice will present Henry with the Tommy Gun. However, when he attempts to grab the Tommy Gun to use as a weapon, it transforms into ink, to which Physical Alice tells him that the gun is a little hard to get a hold of.

To claim the Tommy Gun, go to the toy machine and change the ink toy's form from the bowl next to Shawn Flynn's audio log into the Ink Machine, choose the "demon path" room, and never get killed during the chapter.

The Tommy Gun is used until bringing all ink hearts to Physical Alice for completing the last task, when it is replaced by the Gent pipe.


  • This is the only weapon to be a range type instead of melee.
  • Equipping the Tommy Gun unlocks the "Blazing Metal" achievement.
  • Before Physical Alice gives Henry the gun, she says the gun was from someone special, hinting that the gun was from one of the workers or another person.
