Thing type 301, Bounce Ring, is a Match weapon that, when fired, bounces off any surface it comes into contact with. It will disappear either after a set amount of bounces or after a set amount of time being in the air without bouncing off anything, whichever comes first. The Bounce Ring can be fired at a rate of 3 rings per second. Knuckles can fire it at a rate of 4.5 rings per second. 10 shots are automatically granted upon pickup.

Picking up a Bounce Ring on the map will not allow the player to fire it unless they have previously picked up the Bounce Ring Panel. However, the ammo granted will be retained (provided the player does not drop it) and will carry over when the player picks up the panel. This weapon will reach its maximum capacity at 100.

Giving a Bounce Ring the Ambush flag will make it float 24 fracunits above the ground. All Bounce Rings that are not already floating above the ground due to Z offsets should have this flag because items that do not float are difficult to collect and look as if they were stuck in the floor. The flag stacks on top of the Thing's regular height, allowing Bounce Rings to be a total of 4119 fracunits above the ground at maximum.
