  • The bullets fire just above the barrel.


  • If the pre-existent 50% reduction of ammo comsuption is combined with other ammo preseveration boosters (Shroomite Armor, Ammo Reversation Potion, Titan Armor), the max ammo consumption reduction is 78%.
  • Using any Endless Bullet Pouch makes the ammo comspution reduction useless, which allows one to wear other armor sets for different bonuses.
