This pocked and swollen gun splits and rends the spirit from the body.

High Kaliber is a gun that was added in the A Farewell to Arms update.

The gun fires a shot, which upon hitting an enemy, marks the enemy and causes the enemy's soul to leave its body. The soul will despawn after a short amount of time, if it hits a wall, or if a blank is used. If the player comes into contact with this soul, the enemy takes massive damage. Soul collection kills non-boss enemies instantly, and deals 55 damage to bosses. Additionally, all other marked enemies in the room take 5 damage.

The gun takes 6 ammo per shot, effectively having an ammo capacity of 111.

Notes[ | ]

  • Synergy Kailber k'pow uboom k'bhang - If the player also has Holey Grail, Cursed Bullets, or Yellow Chamber, the split soul initially moves towards the player instead of away.
  • If the player has Scattershot or Helix Bullets, each bullet that hits will spawn a soul, and the damage dealt by collecting souls is not decreased.
  • Helix Bullets causes souls to quickly travel towards the player and stop right in front of them, making them easy to collect.
  • Remote Bullets causes souls to move towards the crosshair.
  • Fat Bullets increase the size of the souls, allowing the player to collect them more easily.
  • Souls cannot be picked up during the player's invincibility frames after being hit.
  • Damage dealt by the souls bypasses the boss DPS cap.
  • Stealing a boss's soul can damage bosses while in normally undamageable states, such as when Blobulord is split into smaller Blobulon-looking bullets.
  • This gun is especially useful in co-op play, as souls can be collected by a partner or even the partner's ghost.
  • When fighting the Ammoconda, souls only appear when you hit the head of the snake.

Trivia[ | ]

  • You can kill the Gunreaper by shooting once and taking his soul. You cannot, though, kill the Lord of the Jammed with it, as the bullets just phase through it.
  • The synergy Synergy Kailber k'pow uboom k'bhang is most likely a reference to the term "ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" of the H.P Lovecraft story "Call of Cthulhu".
  • This gun is most likely a dual reference to both Soulcalibur, a fighting game series featuring a demonic blade that turns its host into a nightmarish abomination similar to what the Entry physically describes the gun as, and Soul Reaver, a spinoff game from the Legacy of Kain series starring an undead vampire that consumes the souls of his slain foes.
  • The damage done by stepping on enemies souls is known internally as 'Soul Burn'[1].
  • The maximum ammo of the High Kaliber is a reference to the biblical Number of the beast (666).
