How To Get A Crown

How To Go To The CrownVault
In Order To Get A Crown In Nuclear Throne You First Have To Go To The Crown Vault, And The Only Way To Spawn A Portal To The Crown Vault Is From The Proto Statue.

In Order To Go To The Crown Vault You Have To First Active The Proto Statue By Damaging It. Once You Do That You Have To Kill Enemies Around The Proto Statue To Feed It Rads (XP) It Can Suck In Rads That Are Near By. While Feeding The Proto Statue The Green Dots On The Side Will Light Up This Tells You How Much Rads It Has Once All Dots Are Lit Up The Portal Can Spawn In By Destroying The Proto Statue. The Proto Statue Can Spawn On 3-2 And 5-2 In Normal Mode, Daily Mode, And Co-Op. The Proto Statue Will Spawn In Hard Mode Or After Loop On 1-2, 3-2, 5-2, And 7-2, The Proto Statue Will Spawn Destroyed In A Weekly So You Can’t Go. In Order To Destroy A Proto Statue You Have To Active It Then Destroy It Before It Gets Enough Rads, And Any Rads It Sucked In You Will Get Back When You Destroy it.

Inside The Crown Vault
If You Go To A Crown Vault With No Crown Then There Will Be No Proto Chest Or Crown Guardians, But if You Go With A Crown There Will Be A Proto Chest And Crown Guardians.

How The Proto Chest Works Is You Can Put A Weapon In It And Come Back In Another Run At Any Time And Pick Up That Same Weapon. You Can Also Use This To Pickup Golden Weapons As Other Mutants (Characters), Put The Golden Weapon You Want In The Proto Chest Then You Can Come Back As A Different Mutant And Pick It Up To Unlock It. Also If You Put The Frog Pistol In The Proto Chest It Will Change Into A Golden Frog Pistol This Is How You Unlock The Frog. This Is Also The Only Way To Get Mutant Specific Weapons As Other Mutants, Such As The Rogue Rifle, Golden Revolver, Chicken Sword, Black Sword, And The Guitar.

The Crown Guardians Will Spawn From These Pillars Once You Walk Over The Crown Platform, You Can Also Damage The Pillars Before Taking A Crown From The Platform If You Don’t Want To Change Crowns. Every Time These Pillars Spawn There Will Be 2 But The Last Time They Spawn Their Will Be 4 Pillars. After You Fight Four Crown Guardians The Proto Statue Will Stop Spawning And You Can’t Go To The Crown Vault Anymore

The Crown Guardian Has 70 HP (Will Have More Hp In Hard Mode And After Looping) And Will Shoot Big Green Balls (The Big Green Balls Do 12 Damage And Has A Chance To Drop A Medkit Or A Ammo Drops And Will Destroy Walls When They Explode) That Explode Into Smaller Green Balls That Do 5 Damage. When A Crown Guardian Dies It Can Drop A Medkit A Ammo Drop Or Nothing, And As Melting You Can Blow Up The Pillars And The Crown Guardians. The Crown Guardian Will Deal No Contact Damage And Can be Damaged And Killed With Gamma Guts.
