In my opinion, Bullet King is one of the most difficult bosses that you can encounter at Level 1 (Chapter 1) because he fills the room with bullets and he has some pretty unexpected attacks that can take you by surprise. But I am here to help you get the most out of this boss and share with an Enter the Gungeon boss guide on how to beat Bullet King.
Although difficult, the Bullet King has mostly easy to follow patterns and you have to only worry about the unexpected throws of that fire bomb and him shooting the cannon. Also, since it’s level 1, you won’t have a huge choice of weapons and you will basically have to do with what you have – some weapons being better than the others. But since you don’t really have much of a choice here, we won’t focus on that. So let’s see…
1How to beat Bullet King in Enter the Gungeon
Keeping the distance is the best thing you can and should do in order to get that flawless run against him.
If you stay close, the bullets will be very difficult to dodge, but if you can keep the distance, you will easily be able to squeeze through the openings.
More difficult is the circle of bullets – again, keep your distance and jump over those as soon as they’re about to hit (you can’t squeeze through, no matter how far you are!).
Finally, he throws that incendiary grenade or Molotov cocktail or whatever and it can cause some damage. The good thing about it is that it’s slow and if you manage to shoot it, it will go down. It leaves a decently sized area of fire underneath, but nothing to worry about so just try to keep your distance, shoot it when you see it and then stay away from the fire.
This would be it for the Bullet King boss in Enter the Gungeon. Just like with all bosses, constant movement is the key, together with good aiming. You can easily learn how to avoid his attacks and shortly he will turn from a very difficult boss to one you’ll be happy to see on your first Chapter!
