The signature weapon of Alistair, the Thunderbolt. Upon his second descent into the Gungeon, the Thunderbolt famously remarked, "Lightning won't strike here again." He wasn't wrong.

Shock Rounds is a passive item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Creates beams of electricity between fired bullets.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Synergy.png Alistair's Ladder - If the player has Thunderclap, it fires two parallel balls of lightning with every shot.
  • Synergy.png Battery Powered - If the player has Shock Rifle, it automatically regenerates ammo over time.
  • Synergy.png Chain Lightning - If the player has Shadow Bullets, the range that Shock Bullets can connect bullets is increased.
  • Synergy.png Future Gangster - If the player has Thompson Sub-Machinegun, it fires lasers.
  • Synergy.png Lotus Bloom - If the player has Laser Lotus, its magazine size increases to 32, its maximum ammo increases to 250, its fire rate greatly increases, and it deals half damage.
  • Synergy.png Neo Tech, Yo - If the player has Mutation, its beams turn blue, it creates electrified water, and it grants electricity immunity while held.
  • Synergy.png Pistol Machine - If the player has Machine Pistol, its shots pierce.
  • Synergy.png Wave Beam - If the player has Heroine, enables Wave Beam mode on Heroine, which fires two wavy projectiles connected by electricity when uncharged, and a standard large Heroine shot when charged. Modes can be switched by reloading Heroine with a full magazine.
  • The beams of electricity can be used to damage the Chicken Flute chicken.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name "Alistair, the Thunderbolt" is likely a reference to the Capcom games Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe. In both games, the name was ascribed to a character or weapon which had control over lightning.
  • The sprite of the item resembles a Tazie, as opposed to Bouncy Bullets, which resemble Rubber Kin.
