Penguin's Umbrella is his main weapon. He has multiple models, each with different weapons inside.

During his first criminal activities, Penguin used his umbrella to hide stolen goods inside it. He also used it as a multifunctional weapon as it could spray knockout gas, acid and even worked as a gun.[1] The umbrella was shown to be strong enough to carry Penguin as he glided downwards from the air or floated on the water.
