Everything you need to know

General Information

One Nano Bullet may inflict the Confused debuff that reverses the afflicted's movement, going the opposite way. The debuff lasts for 1s (66.7%) to 3s (33.3%). Enemies outside of plain sight will get caught by a Nano Bullet, assuming the player fired at the wall. As it bounces to the nearest hostile, it will only deal 2/3rds of the base damage.

In combat, Nano Bullets will pair well with guns that shoot multiple projectiles in one go. It is even more useful in tight spaces where enemies gather and swarm around the player. On the other hand, enemy players on PvP will not be affected by the Confused debuff.
