The Coiled Launcher (サイコジャンパー?, lit.: "Psycho Jumper") is a treasure in Pikmin 2. It is actually a rusted spring. This treasure is found on sublevel 3 of the Subterranean Complex, where fire geysers and a few Armored Cannon Beetle Larvae are the only hazards. There is also an Ivory Candypop Bud to use. If all the enemies are near each other, use a leader to lure them into destroying each other with their rocks; if not, throw Pikmin on carefully, making sure the beast is facing away from any edges. The Coiled Launcher is located at a random location on the level. It is presumably a reference to the Gravity Jumper in the first game.


Olimar's journal

I tried flying this thing once, but it moved too rapidly and I contracted vertigo. Maybe it could be used as an amusement ride. The youngins would love it! However, I don't think I'll ever ride it again...

Sales pitch

Just an ordinary spring? Hardly! This is a high-speed thrill ride tested by one of our employees! Jump aboard for a ride so fast, it'll make you see other worlds!
