  • Most Bullet Upgrade sprites are designed after either pistol cartridges or shotgun shells. The exceptions to this being Silver Bullets and Chaos Bullets, which are instead designed after rifle cartridges.
  • Some Bullet Upgrade items correspond very closely to existing guns, including:
  • Having too many bullet upgrades can crash the game.
    • Chaos Bullets may cause the game to crash more often than usual
    • Having Orbital Bullets and the Yari Launcher with the Synergy.png Shadow Warrior - synergy active, causing the demon head to fire will cause severe amounts of lag.
