Platinum Bullets is a passive item and a bullet upgrade.

Effects[ | ]

  • Increases damage and fire rate with every bullet that hits an enemy.
    • Weapon fire rate doubles every 250 normalized seconds of firing (2500 shots with a ten-shots-per-second weapon), to a maximum of triple firing speed after 375 seconds of shooting.
    • Weapon damage dealt doubles every 500 normalized seconds of firing (5000 shots with a ten-shots-per-second weapon), to a maximum of triple damage after 750 seconds of shooting.
    • Platinum Bullets start partially powered; there's a large immediate bump in fire speed and damage if the item is acquired on a later floor.
    • If Platinum Bullets are dropped, the effect of the Platinum Bullets resets until the next combat. After the next combat starts, the effect returns to as before.

Notes[ | ]

  • 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.
  • The damage and fire rate bonuses do not update until the player switches weapons or picks up/drops an item or gun, making it possible for the bonuses to never apply.
  • Beam weapons stay mostly unchanged, but the increased fire rate makes their ammo drain much faster.
  • With this item, most weapons turn silver in appearance, with a periodic white sheen appearing.
  • If this item is dropped, the fire rate and damage bonus are lost, and do not return when picked back up.

Trivia[ | ]

  • UnusedSynergy Unused: Precious Metals - If the player had Gold Junk, killing an enemy would spawn 1-6 extra Money in addition to the enemy's other loot.
  • The line "Over One Million Served" is a reference to the McDonald's Restaurant's common sign slogan of "Over 99 Billion Served".
  • The item and drop line both reference the phrase/concept of "going platinum", meaning to reach 1 million (or more) in total sales. It was revealed by the Enter the Gungeon twitter account that in July 2017 they reached this merit.
