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 sink plunger. It is seen with marks along the bottom.


Obviously, it is used to unclog sinks, 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, taking far more hits than the aforementioned two weapons. There are plungers in some chapters, but they 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 hacks to access the room, 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 in the restroom area, still however Henry is not able to obtain it.

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

Chapter 4: Colossal Wonders

The plunger reappears in the fourth chapter as a secret item used in the battle against Brute 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 Brute Boris has started, interact with the selection wheel on the Ink Maker to replace it. Henry can now select the plunger to be created instead of the Gent Pipe, but defeating Brute 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 where the plunger causes hit-marks on barrels similar 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.
