What does the Full Metal Jacket do in Enter The Gungeon?
The Full Metal Jacket is a B-rank passive item that causes your blanks to go off automatically when your Gungeoneer is about to take damage.
Using Blanks will completely clear the room of all bullets, which is how the Full Metal Jacket will remove any damage sources that might cause you to take damage in Enter the Gungeon.
In addition to its automatic Blank activation capabilities, you will gain one piece of armor with the Full Metal Jacket in your inventory. Full Metal Jacket also shares Synergies with two other items in the game. More on this in the Synergies section below.
Is the Full Metal Jacket a good item in Enter The Gungeon?
The Full Metal Jacket is a good item in Enter the Gungeon, especially if you’re trying to avoid taking as much damage as possible in your current run.
The damage immunity that Full Metal Jacket provides will come in handy when things become too chaotic in your current room. More advanced players adept at dodging and positioning themselves around the Gungeon will reap the full benefits of the Full Metal Jacket and, in most cases, guarantee a Master Round.
Best Synergy for the Full Metal Jacket in Enter The Gungeon
The Full Metal Jacket features Synergies with two other items in Enter the Gungeon – The Line of Fire and To Serve Android.
The Line of Fire
The Line of Fire is a Synergy shared between the Full Metal Jacket and the S-rank Composite Gun in Enter the Gungeon.
This Synergy will cause the Composite Gun to fire bullets that leave a trail of fire.
To Serve Android
If you happen to come across the Badge and the Full Metal Jacket in the same Gungeon run, you can activate the To Serve Android Synergy between these two items.
The Badge will spawn a police officer that will follow the player and assist him in combat around the Gungeon. With the To Serve Android Synergy, this police officer will turn into a robot that will not die.
How to Use the Full Metal Jacket in Enter The Gungeon?
The Full Metal Jacket is a passive item in Enter the Gungeon, which means you only need to have the item in your inventory to reap its effects.
All you have to do is make sure that you have Blanks in your inventory so the Full Metal Jacket can do its job and automatically activate those Blanks when you’re close to taking damage in the Gungeon.
If you have an Elder Blank in your inventory, the Full Metal Jacket will prioritize using the Elder Blank before it uses your other normal Blanks to prevent damage.
One thing to note is that fall damage will not trigger the Full Metal Jacket unless you also have the Elder Blank in your inventory. In addition, Status Effects will also trigger the Full Metal Jacket and cause it to use a Blank automatically.
The Full Metal Jacket is a nice defensive item that can help you secure those Master Rounds in Enter the Gungeon. Its damage prevention capabilities help give you the leeway you need when things get too hectic around the Gungeon.
