Purchase the Spread Shot First

There are six additional variants on Cuphead’s weapon that you can unlock, each of which will drastically change how you play or approach fights. While all of them are good we highly recommend picking up the Spread potion first. Acting as Cuphead’s version of a shotgun, this projectile fires in a fan shape and has a rather short range. However, it more than makes up for this thanks to the incredible damage output it has. There are a lot of bosses that you can get close to and use Spread on, so pick this up as soon as you can.
