The Wide Worm Shooter[1] is an object that appears in Shadow the Hedgehog. It is a lock-on-type weapon usable to both enemies and the player, and a firearm used by the Black Arms.


The Big Worm Shooter is very similar to the Worm Shooter, resembling a handgun-like weapon about Shadow the Hedgehog's size. An alien weapon with an organic-looking texture, the Big Worm Shooter is pale gold with a wide, water drop-shaped frame and flame-like points on the back. It also has an orange recess on both sides.


In gameplay, the Big Worm Shooter can only be found in certain Stages. They can be wielded by Black Arm enemies who will use them against the player. When fired, the Big Worm Shooter's shots can home in on the player over a certain range.

Big Worm Shooters can be dropped by defeated Black Arms enemies that wield them or released from containers. Touching them will make Shadow pick them up automatically. As a lock-on, the Big Worm Shooter can unleash a homing attack on enemies. Hold PSSquareButton/SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO/XboxX (whether on the ground or in mid-air) and use the control stick to target and lock onto enemies, then release to fire. By comparison, this weapon's shot have a long range and high damage output. A Big Worm Shooter has a total of six shots and once those run out, it becomes useless. However, it can be reloaded with another six shots by picking up another Big Worm Shooter.
