What does the Double Vision do in Enter The Gungeon?
The Double Vision is a D-rank active item in Enter the Gungeon that, when activated, temporarily doubles the player’s bullet projectiles but reduces accuracy as a tradeoff.
The Double Vision is regarded by some players as a redundant item in Enter the Gungeon due to the existence of the Potion of Gun Friendship in-game.
In theory, the Double Vision active item is supposed to double the player’s bullet damage. However, because of how Boss Damage Cap works in Enter the Gungeon, the Double Vision item’s theoretical double damage boost is ultimately nerfed in the process.
The Potion of Gun Friendship is arguably the better D-rank active item, as it provides more stat bonuses and improves DPS to a similar degree as the Double Vision in Enter the Gungeon.
There are three Synergies for Double Vision in Enter the Gungeon – Dwarven Stout, Five O’Clock Somewhere, and Special Reserve.
The Stout Bullets and Double Vision can combine to activate the Dwarven Stout Synergy in Enter the Gungeon.
Normally, Double Vision doubles the player’s shots fired, but with the Dwarven Stout Synergy, players will fire three projectiles instead of two.
The Five O’Clock Somewhere Synergy between the Double Vision and the Crestfaller will give the latter the ability to fire a glass bottle that can stun enemies whenever Crestfaller is reloaded.
In addition, standing on any liquid pool will replenish any missing ammo from the Crestfaller’s current magazine.
With the Molotov Launcher and Double Vision in the player’s inventory, the Synergy named Special Reserve is activated. With this Synergy, Molotov Launcher’s Molotovs will gain the ability to create green pools of fire that will permanently burn enemies.
Double Vision is an active item, which means that the player has to use the item to activate its effects in-game. While active, Double Vision will double the player’s bullet projectiles but reduce accuracy as a minor tradeoff.
It is worth noting that the Backup Gun will fire three forward shots and one backward shot with Double Vision activated instead of the expected two forward and two backward shots.
Overall, the Double Vision active item is a good DPS-enhancing item that can help players deal more damage to lesser enemies in their Gungeon runs.
However, due to the damage cap that exists when fighting against bosses in-game, the Double Vision loses its theoretical double-damage buff, making it a redundant item due to the existence of the Potion of Gun Friendship, which provides more status bonuses than the Double Vision in Enter the Gungeon.
