Adds small explosive charges to some shots fired.

Originally developed by the Gundead Miners found deep in the Black Powder Mines, these small explosive charges work wonders when clearing a room.

A favorite of the Gunsling King, who enjoys the sound they make.

Explosive Rounds is a passive item and a bullet upgrade.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Adds an 8.5% chance to fire bullets that explode upon hitting an enemy or object.
    • The explosions deal 25 damage.
    • This effect can only be triggered a maximum of once per second, making it seem like slower fire rate weapons have a higher chance.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Synergy.png Air Support - If the player has Air Strike, it will cover a massive area when used.
  • Synergy.png Cerebral Bros - Upgrades the Bullet Bore to fire 2 drills.
  • Synergy.png Reactive - Makes Lower Case r spell out ROCKET, BOOM, KABOOM, and POW when fired, and its shots explode.
  • Synergy.png Shot Across The Bow - If the player has Gunbow, it fires explosive missiles.
  • The explosions do not harm the player.
  • Explosions can show secret room cracks when using starter guns.
  • If combined with Angry Bullets, explosive projectiles won't explode when hitting enemies and will just bounce off of them.
  • If used with a shotgun, each pellet has a chance to explode. Since the explosion damage is fixed, this massively increases the power of shotguns.
  • Explosions can destroy otherwise permanent fixtures to the wall, such as shelving in the mines.
  • If the Alien Engine explodes using this round, it leaves a small area of fire.
  • If combined with Irradiated Lead, Hot Lead, or Frost Bullets, explosions have a chance to leave a puddle of their respective element.
