Shadow Bullets is a passive item and a bullet upgrade.


  • Firing a weapon has a 15% chance to fire an additional projectile.
  • Gives beam style Guns a 15% chance every second while firing to gain double damage for one second, creating random seconds of double damage.


  • Synergy.png Chain Lightning - If the player has Shock Rounds, the range that Shock Rounds can connect bullets is increased, and lightning can connect to enemy bullets.
  • Synergy.png Gruber's Bane - If the player has Backup Gun, Backup Gun has a 100% chance of firing shadow bullets.
  • Synergy.png Kage Bunshin - If the player has Decoy, using Decoy spawns a shadow clone of the player that mirrors their movements and fires towards the crosshair whenever the player fires.
  • Synergy.png Mr. Shadow - If the player has Zorgun, its shadow bullets will become random explosives.
    • This also applies to all companions and items that generate bullets while Zorgun is equipped.
  • Synergy.png Noxin Cannon - If the player has Luxin Cannon, it turns gray and its lasers deal 25% more damage.
  • The beam damage multiplier sometimes granted by Shadow Bullets does not stack with the beam damage multipliers of Shock Rounds, Flak Bullets, Explosive Rounds, Katana Bullets, Vorpal Bullets, Blank Bullets, Devolver Rounds or Hungry Bullets.
    • While the damage multiplier itself does not stack, the chance for the multiplier to be applied per-second does.
  • Shadow Bullets will maintain their original trajectory even if the player has another bullet modifier that could change it, such as Helix Bullets or Remote Bullets. However, bullets created by Synergy.png Gruber's Bane can be guided with Remote Bullets.
  • If the player kills a Apprentice Gunjurer with this at the same time it shoots the shot of the enemy will double.
