A few weapons can be used in other way. If there are some items in mid-air out of your reach, use the Bouncer to reach them. It has a very long range and knocking down the items is easy. The Freezer can be used to freeze springs and boxes. Frozen boxes will continue to move even after you stop pushing them. Frozen springs will no longer work, allowing you to enter some areas. Dynamite can be used to destroy Buttstomp Blocks, which is helpful when certain areas are normally blocked off to one of the characters. The Fire Gun (not Flamethrower) can go through walls, allowing you to destroy enemies in relative safety.
