Thick Ink is an item used for Chapter 4 and 5 of Bendy and the Ink Machine. It is first encountered in Chapter 4 when Henry encounters a missing gear and must use a smaller ink machine to make a new one. He collects this Thick Ink on a almost tumor on a searchers back. We see it again when Brute Boris runs into a wall, causing him to bleed out this Thick Ink. In Chapter 5 we see it again when we must retrieve it from the administration maze, dodging the Butcher Gang through the halls, to make pipes to drain the ink from the Film Vault.
It resembles an ice cream scoop made out of black ink.
Henry must collect thick ink from the back of a Swollen Searcher encountered in the pillar room, and use it in an Ink Maker to make a gear to fix the bridge for Henry to cross to the other side or create Music Radio to play the song for unlocking "Finger Waggin" Achievement.
Later on, during the boss fight against Brute Boris, when Brute Boris stops moving, his bleeding chest cavity will drop thick ink, which can be used in the Ink Maker to make a Gent pipe (or plunger, if the player finds the special disc) which can be used to deal damage Brute Boris until he dies.
At the administration maze, Henry must avoid Piper, Fisher, and Striker while collecting thick ink. The player must put the thick ink in an Ink Maker to create pipes to drain the Film Vault to continue the objective task and process toward another location.
