Bullets are the ammunition used by most guns. Each type of bullet has its own stats, and they are added to the stats of the gun using them to produce a final set of numbers used. For example, if a player is using Musket Balls, with 7 damage, and a Musket, with 23 damage, the base damage will be 30 to any successful target.

Damage, Knockback, and Velocity all vary among bullet type, and each bullet except for Musket Ball and Silver Bullet have a special effect.
