First Appearance

Revenge of the Yolk

Utensil Poker is a weapon introduced in Revenge of the Yolk. It's an unlockable in all games it appears in.

Strategy

It is a special weapon designed specifically for use against the Chickens. It fires forks at a decent firerate, which can deliver more damage than most other weapons. The projectiles can either go straight up, or to the sides, giving it a wide range. Its only disadvantage is that it's locked behind unlockables in all games it appears in.

You can unlock this weapon in Revenge of the Yolk for completing a mission once. After that, it may appear starting from Chapter 6. The Yolk-Star™ will drop it even if it's not unlocked. In Ultimate Omelette and Cluck of the Dark Side, it has to be bought for 200 Key and 150 Key respectively. Even then, it won't appear until Chapter 5.

Pros

  • It can fire both straight and to the sides.
  • High damage.
  • Low Overheat rate.

Cons

  • It's an unlockable in all games it appears in.

Trivia

  • In the main menu of the non-remastered The Next Wave, you can "poke" a Chicken with a fork until it flies offscreen. This might be what inspired this weapon.
