Shooting occasionally spawns additional bees.

These shells contain tiny beehives. Guns and bees, of course, have a strongly symbiotic relationship.

Bumbullets is a passive item and a bullet upgrade.


  • Every one second while the fire key is held, the item causes the player's gun to shoot a bee which homes in on and damages enemies.
    • The extra bee projectile deals 3 damage to enemies, and swarms around its target dealing 1 damage two more times before expiring.
      • The initial 3 damage impact of the bee is affected by the players Damage stat, but the lingering swarm damage is not.
    • This extra bee projectile does not consume ammo.


  • Synergy.png BEES - If the player has Bee Hive, the size of the Bee Hive's bees is doubled, their damage is increased by 25%, and the Bee Hive's rate of fire is decreased by 34%.
  • Synergy.png Hidden Tech Bees - If the player has Table Tech Blanks, a swarm of bees replaces enemy bullets when a table is flipped.
  • Because bee spawning is based on a timer while the fire key is held, holding down the fire key with a charge-style weapon allows the player to spawn one bee a second at no ammo cost.
    • This includes infinite ammo weapons such as Casey.
    • Bees spawned this way can trigger the 25% chance to refund ammo of Zombie Bullets, allowing the player to slowly regenerate ammo for any charged gun.
    • Bees spawned this way reveal secret walls, and do not anger the Shopkeeper.
  • With Scattershot, Bumbullets will create three bees every second, but is still affected by Scattershots damage penalty.
  • While Double Vision is active, Bumbullets will create two bees every second.
  • Bees fired from the Charmed Bow with the Synergy.png Unbelievably Charming Synergy will charm enemies. This includes bees fired by holding down the fire key without releasing, allowing the player to charm enemies without expending ammo.
  • Holding duplicate copies of Bumbullets causes multiple bees to be fired each second.
    • Additional bees created by duplicates sometimes do not correctly render on screen, but still attack and deal damage to enemies.
  • With Angry Bullets, bees will duplicate themselves upon impacting an enemy, with one bee remaining behind to deal swarm damage to the target while another flies off in a random direction.


  • "Bumbullets" is a portmanteau of the word "bumble" (as in bumblebee) and "bullets."
