Gru takes aim with the freeze ray in Despicable Me 2.
Able to freeze anything.
The freeze ray is Felonius Gru's signature weapon. As its name implies, the freeze ray, when fired, projects a ray that instanteously freezes whatever the beam hits on contact.
Gru is first seen utilizing the freeze ray to freeze everybody in a coffee shop, in order to bypass a line and get his coffee quickly. He later freezes Vector's head in jealous fit after finding out the latter is responsible for stealing the Pyramid of Giza. Edith and Agnes later used it on Gru while he is holding a teleconference with Mr. Perkins.
Despicable Me 2
When Anti-Villain League agent Lucy Wilde appears to escort Gru to the AVL's headquarters, he attempts to freeze her. She counters with a heat ray and proceeds to take him by force. Later Gru uses it to freeze Antonio, Margo's crush, after he broke her heart. In the final battle against the PX-41 mutated El Macho, Gru freezes his adversary's arms in an attempt to stall the giant villain.
Appearance in Other Media
Minion RushThe player's Minion can pick up the Freeze Ray as an item in Minion Rush after it is purchased from the shop. When it is picked up, the player's Minion will constantly shoot blasts from the ray, which freeze any obstacle blocking the player's path. The player's Minion can then safely smash through the frozen obstacles, increasing the Despicable Bonus with each smash. This is one of the quickest and simplest ways to pass a Despicable Bonus goal. Also, any Minions who are using or on an obstacle before it is frozen, will be wiped out (Despicable Bonus) if their obstacle is frozen. The Hunter outfit upgrades the Freeze Ray to be able to destroy objects instantaneously when the ray hits, making the player receive more Despicable Bonuses since they no longer must crash into the frozen obstacles. The weakness of the Freeze Ray is, despite it being a ray gun, it is very short ranged. Another downfall is that the Despicable Bonuses earned when smashing a frozen obstacle with the Freeze Ray is also much smaller than that of a Minion Smash Despicable Bonus, therefore it takes longer to reach the next multiplier than normal. The Freeze Ray, along with the Minion Shield, Banana Splitter, Banana Vacuum, Minion Launcher, and PX-41 is one of the few items that does not allow the player to tilt the screen in order to use properly.
- Note: The Freeze Ray will stop working when the player's Minion gets close to a secret/special area or a slide in their location.
- This is one of the two weapons that appeared in first two movies. The other is the Fart Gun.
