Alpha Bullet is a passive item and a bullet upgrade.


  • The first shot of a weapon's magazine deals 80% more damage.


  • Synergy.png Added Effect - Fire - If the player has Hot Lead, the first shot of each magazine is guaranteed to be a fire bullet.
  • Synergy.png Added Effect - Ice - If the player has Frost Bullets, the first shot of each magazine is guaranteed to be an ice bullet.
  • Synergy.png Added Effect - Poison - If the player has Irradiated Lead, the first shot of each magazine is guaranteed to be a poison bullet.
  • Synergy.png J am - If the player has Omega Bullets, reload times for all guns are decreased by 33%.
  • Synergy.png Root - If the player has Lower Case r, adds an alpha before each BULLET.
  • This item is very effective for guns that have a single bullet in each magazine, as every shot will have increased damage.
  • This item only increases the damage dealt by Blasphemy for the first swing after double tapping reload.
  • If duplicates of this item are somehow obtained, further increases the damage of the first shot of a weapon's clip.
  • This item has no effect on beam guns.


  • The item's effect is a reference to the fact that alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet.
  • The Synergy.png J am synergy could possibly be a reference to the Bible, as God is repeatedly referred to as "I am" beginning in Genesis, and ending in Revelations 22:13, "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End."
