"The fashionable and lethal Gunboots allow players to unleash a torrent of firepower on the nasty creatures dwelling in the well and slow your descent with each shot." -Downwell Steam PageThe Machine Gun, the main form of the Gunboots, is the base weapon that, as its name suggests, fires an automatic stream of bullets downwards until the charge runs out. Through it's role as the starting weapon, it can be assumed as the main form of the "Gunboots." Each bullet slows the player's descent by a little bit, and provides extended airtime when fired continuously.
Machine Gun consumes 1 charge per shot.
