Standard Issue
Bullet Kin are the most common Gundead.

These sentient shells were brought to life hundreds of years ago, when the great Bullet struck and formed the Gungeon.

They are simple creatures, but vigilant and loyal.

Bullet Kin are one of the most common members of the Cult of the Gundead, appearing prolifically in Enter the Gungeon, Exit the Gungeon, and Enter the Gungeon: House of the Gundead.


Enter the Gungeon ETG

Bullet Kin slowly walk towards the player, occasionally firing a single bullet in their direction. They will also deal contact damage if the player touches them.

Bullet Kin will occasionally walk to tables and flip them in order to take cover from the players bullets.

Bullet Kin will also attempt to fire at explosive barrels in order to detonate them. This behaviour does not account for the Bullet Kins proximity to the barrel, and may lead to it blowing itself up.

Bullet Kin are also one of the few enemies capable of riding in minecarts, and will prioritise walking to available carts over following the player.

While not a behaviour of the Bullet Kin themselves, Bullet Kin are periodically spawned by the Trigger Twins during their boss fight.

Ak-47 Variant

Occasionally rooms will contain Bullet Kin wielding the AK-47. These differently equipped Bullet Kin will rapidly fire towards the player in 8 bullet bursts before reloading.

Exit the Gungeon XTG

Bullet Kin walk back and forth across the elevator platform, occasionally shooting a single bullet in the players direction.

Jetpack Variant
