Default Star Munchkin. Foof gun

Does the Foof gun have a flat +6 bonus or do you get that bonus ONLY when you use it's special ability? (so in order to get the +6 bonus you have to vanish the monster and only take it's treasure?)

Yes, the only way for the Foof Gun to give you its bonus is to unfortunately take advantage of its special rule. Any Monster you kill while intentionally using the Foof Gun will only leave its Treasure, and not give you its level rewards. It's annoying, but at least you're normally allowed to choose not to use it (and its special rule).

To be clear, using the Foof Gun does not automatically wipe out all the Monsters, it only gives you a really big bonus which just happens to have its drawbacks.

In the event of a voluntary helper with a foof gun, does the helper have the choice to use the foof gun even if the combat can be won without it?
IE: Combat is 31-monster(s) 42-(munchkins) Can the helper (owner of foof gun) decide to use the foof gun even though it is not necessary for the win, take the agreed upon number of treasures, and leave main combat munchkin without levels?
Thank you

Yes, the helper could choose to use the Foof Gun to deny the main player any levels. Good reason not to choose that player as a helper!
