What does the High Kaliber do in Enter The Gungeon?
The High Kaliber is an A-rank gun that fires shots that removes an enemy’s soul from their body. The target’s extracted soul will shoot out from behind the enemy and persist for a short period. While the souls persist, you need to run towards the souls and collect them to deal damage with the High Kaliber.
Collecting boss souls will deal 55 damage to the boss while all other marked enemies in the room take 5 damage. On the other hand, collecting the soul of normal enemies will kill them instantly.
High Kaliber will consume 6 ammo per shot. With its max ammo capacity of 666, you should be able to fire 111 shots with the High Kaliber before it completely runs out.
The High Kaliber is a very powerful gun that takes some getting used to to extract its full potential. You can easily kill non-boss enemies and deal massive damage to bosses if you can find a way to reliably collect all the souls you extract from enemies in the Gungeon.
Best Synergy for the High Kaliber in Enter The Gungeon
The High Kaliber only has one Synergy in Enter the Gungeon – Kailber k’pow uboom k’bhang.
If you have the High Kaliber and the Holey Grail/Cursed Bullets/Yellow Chamber, the Kailber k’pow uboom k’bhang Synergy will become active.
The Kailber k’pow uboom k’bhang Synergy will cause extracted souls to move in your direction, making it a bit easier to collect the souls and deal damage to marked enemies in the Gungeon.
Using the Helix Bullets with High Kaliber will cause extracted souls to move towards you and stop in front of your Gungeoneer. This should make soul collection much easier.
If you have the Remote Bullets, souls extracted with the High Kaliber will move toward your crosshair’s position on the screen.
Fat Bullets will increase the size of the souls extracted from enemies in the Gungeon. This will make the souls much easier to collect.
How to Use the High Kaliber in Enter The Gungeon?
When using the High Kaliber, all you have to do is shoot the gun toward your desired target. This will deal minor damage (15) to the target but extract its soul in the process, leaving small soul blobs behind the target. Run toward and make contact with the blobs to deal damage to your marked target.
It is worth noting, however, that you cannot collect souls while you’re in an invincible state, such as a few seconds after getting hit. On the other hand, you can still deal damage to boss characters even if they’re in an invincible state by collecting their extracted souls.
High Kaliber is a quirky yet powerful gun that requires some getting used to deal maximum damage to bosses and non-boss enemies in the Gungeon. The process of extracting and collecting souls is a very risky ordeal, but it is one that pays its weight in gold if you can get a hang of the process in-game.
