  • Doubles knockback.
  • Increases bullet size by 25%.

Synergies[ | ]

  • Synergy Alternative Rock - If the player has Face Melter, instead of firing four streams, Face Melter fires two parallel columns of notes. Reloading fires a guitar pick with a chance to stun.
  • Synergy Heavy Jolt - If the player has Jolter, it gains increased knockback.
  • Synergy Heavy Metal - If the player has Anvillain, its damage is increased by 20% and its shot speed is decreased by 25%.
  • Synergy Iron Slug - If the player has Big Iron, it fires a single high-damage slug.
  • Synergy Massive Effect - If the player has Mass Shotgun, its shot size increases significantly.
  • Synergy Nailed It! - If the player has Nail Gun, its nails deal triple damage and cause bleeding.
  • Synergy Over Dose - If the player has Devolver, Heavy Bullets no longer decreases shot speed with any gun.

Notes[ | ]

  • Thrown guns will increase in size, and will remain large even after picking them back up. This is purely a cosmetic effect and has no effect on gameplay.
  • Due to the higher knockback and slower shot speed, this item can be detrimental with short-ranged guns.
  • Rocket-Powered Bullets will mitigate the lower bullet velocity.
  • Heavy Bullets' slowing effect carries over to the gun used for Winchester's mini-game.
  • If duplicates of this item are somehow obtained, further increases bullet damage, knockback, and size but decreases bullet speed.
    • This allows bullets to last indefinitely when fired if many of these items are obtained; however, they won't travel anywhere.
    • For some beam type weapons, the bullet animation shows separate, individual laser chunks rather than the whole thing.

Trivia[ | ]

  • This item is a reference to the game Heavy Bullets.
    • The icon of the item resembles the appearance of ammunition in Heavy Bullets.
    • The statement about their colors is a reference to the colorful graphics in the aforementioned game.
  • The Synergy Over Dose synergy likely references Doseone, the musician for both Enter The Gungeon and Heavy Bullets.
  • The Synergy Massive Effect synergy is a reference to the video game franchise Mass Effect
