General Information

The Golden Bullet is specifically made for players wanting to farm Coins. Once into contact, enemies will be afflicted by the Midas debuff, dropping 10% to 50% more Coins.

While farming Coins, using the Sniper Rifle for a quick kill is recommended as the debuff lasts for 2s only. Alternatively, guns that fire multiple bullets in one go are also advisable to save ammo.

Type: Ammunition
Mode: Hardmode
