A relative of the Keybullet Kin, the Chance Kin can hide a variety of useful goods within their boxy heads.

If ignored, they will become bored and fade beyond the Curtain. Only skilled Gungeoneers can take the chance they provide.

Chance Kin are a Bullet Kin variant which appear in Enter the Gungeon.


Chance Kin run away from the player, and drop a random non-key pickup upon death. However, if the player does not manage to kill them in time, they will disappear. Unlike other Bullet Kin, Chance Kin do not deal contact damage unless they are Jammed.

Jammed Chance Kin drop 2 random pickups instead of 1. These Jammed variations run faster and will take less time to teleport away from the player if they are not destroyed quickly.

The chances for a specific number of Chance Kin to spawn on a floor are:

0 1 2
50% 30% 20%


  • There is a single room in the Resourceful Rat's Lair which contains two guaranteed Chance Kin. This is the only place in the game where Chance Kin appear as pre-placed enemies rather than random spawns.
  • Chance Kin may appear in boss arenas during Boss Rush.
  • Chance Kin have a small chance to appear in elevator rooms at the start of the floor.
  • The Chance Kin's subtitle is a reference to the common phrase "No Second Chances".
  • Chance Kin are extremely similar in behaviour to Keybullet Kin, except that they provide a random non-key pickup.
  • Chance Kin block player movement during their death animation.
  • Chance Kin can appear in the same room as a Keybullet Kin.
  • Chance Kin behavior is modeled after the Crystal Lizards from the Souls series and the Wandering Madness from Bloodborne. Both are harmless "enemies" that quickly run away from the player—often leading them directly into the path of danger—and despawn after a short time, with the promise of valuable loot if they are killed.
  • If the challenge modifier Final Attack is active, Chance Kin will release a ring of bullets upon fading from existence.
