Chlorophyte Bullets are homing bullets, capable of turning sharply in midair, and can even curve instantly around to hit enemies behind the player. They will home in on the closest target first but if that one is killed, any remaining airborne pellets will change targets, going after the next one.
Chlorophyte Bullets will also produce a momentary streak effect that emits a large amount of green light.
- Chlorophyte Bullets will not home in on other players in PvP scenarios.
Chlorophyte Bullets in action. Note how they swerve around to hit targets.
- Chlorophyte bullets may home in on Mimics and Nymphs before they become hostile and attack the player.
- Chlorophyte bullets are less effective against Lunatic Cultist as he gets a 25% damage reduction from homing projectiles.
- Chlorophyte Bullets will attempt to home in on enemies on the other side of solid blocks, wasting bullets.
- A good tactic would be to shoot the bullets over enemies behind cover; That way the round will 'sense' it and then swerve around to hit.
- Chlorophyte Bullets pair well with guns that compromise on accuracy in favor of a high fire rate or wide spread, and/or a chance to not consume ammunition, e.g. the Shotgun and Tactical Shotgun, the Xenopopper, the Chain Gun, the Gatligator, or the Vortex Beater. The homing effect negates the spread, and lower ammo consumption lowers the expense of keeping this ammunition stocked.
- Reflected Chlorophyte Bullets from either Biome Mimics in Expert Mode or Selenians will target the player, so hold your fire when they're in such positions.
- The bullet will target any enemy, regardless of direction.
