The letter r looks like a gun.

It is rare, but not unheard of, for abstract concepts to take gun form when discussed near the Gungeon.

Lower Case r is a gun that fires a burst of 6 bullets that spell out the word BULLET. While firing, the gun will voice out the word "bullet".


  • Synergy.png Hacker - If the player also has Bracket Key, damage is increased by 25%.
  • Synergy.png Just In Case - If the player has Bomb, the gun becomes a capital letter R and transforms into a one shot rocket launcher. It fires the word ROCKET with cloud sprites when shot, and creates a cartoony BOOM cloud when it hits something.
  • Synergy.png Rabid - If the player has Angry Bullets, the words LOSER, DORK, CHUMP, NOODLE, and TAFFER are spelled out.
  • Synergy.png Radiant - If the player has Silver Bullets, the words SILVER, BLESSED, and WEREWOLF are spelled out. When it shoots "WEREWOLF", the firing sound is "DIE WEREWOLF DIE".
  • Synergy.png Ravishing - If the player has Charming Rounds, the words HANDSOME, CHARM, and CUTE are spelled out, and shots become charming.
  • Synergy.png Reactive - If the player has Explosive Rounds, the words ROCKET, BOOM, KABOOM, and POW are spelled out, and shots become explosive.
  • Synergy.png Reanimate - If the player has Ghost Bullets, the words SPOOKY, GHOST, and BOO are spelled out.
  • Synergy.png Reinforced - If the player has +1 Bullets, BULLET+1 is spelled out.
  • Synergy.png Remnant - If the player has Omega Bullets, an omega appears after BULLET.
  • Synergy.png Replete - If the player also has Finished Gun, the words COWABUNGA, BOOYAKASHA, THANK YOU, THANKS, HASTA LA VISTA, TOODLES, GOODBYE, FAREWELL, and GAME OVER are spelled out.
  • Synergy.png Research - If the player has Book of Chest Anatomy, the words CHEST and MIMIC are spelled out, and the gun can unlock locked chests and doors.
  • Synergy.png Resplendent - If the player has Gilded Bullets, the words CASH, COINS, SHELLS, and GOLD are spelled out.
  • Synergy.png Root - If the player has Alpha Bullets, an alpha appears before BULLET.
  • Synergy.png Runic - If the player has Magic Bullets, the words ABRA and KADABRA are spelled out, and the words turn dark purple.
  • All synergies that affect what letters Lower Case r fires increase the base damage per letter from 2.2 to 5, and causes the gun to voice out whatever word was just fired.


  • The voice that says the words shot by the gun out loud belongs to Doseone, the game's composer.
  • The reload animation consists of deleting the letter, through use of backspace, and typing a new one.
  • Lower Case r's bullets leave behind the word BLAM!! whenever they hit something.
  • This could be a reference to old ASCII Adventure games, where letters would commonly be used to represent items, pickups, and weapons based on their visual similarities.
  • The pickup quote "Alphabetical!" could be a reference to Finn from Adventure Time exclaiming "Mathematical!"
  • The word "TAFFER" which can be fired with Angry Bullets is a reference to the same word used as an insult by guards in Thief: The Dark Project.
  • The synergy Radiant may be a visual pun referencing Radiant Silvergun.
  • The synergy Just In Case transforms this item into the Upper Case R, originally intended to be its own gun, which has its own unused Ammonomicon entry. This is what it says:
    The uppercase version of the letter r.

    Although the uppercase version of the r character does not resemble a gun, the space between the two lower markings does create a kind of chute shape, and chute sounds a lot like shoot. The rest is obvious.
  • Excepting Synergy.png Hacker and Synergy.png Just In Case, the names of all of Lower Case r's synergies begin with the letter R.


  • If both scattershot and explosive rounds are also held, occasionally fires multiple words on a single trigger pull.
