Silver Nitrate Bullets are the latest incarnation of the Vampires' standard silver-plated bullets used to kill Lycans. When shot, a silver solution is excreted from the round directly into the bloodstream of the victim, clogging it with poison. Silver Nitrate bullets were copied from the Lycans' ultraviolet ammunition by the Vampire Weapons Master Kahn.
The inspiration for the silver nitrate bullets comes from a discovery made by the Vampiress Selene when she captures a sample of the Lycans ultraviolet ammunition. Selene brings the UV bullets back to Ördögház for testing, where Kahn gets the idea for Silver Nitrate bullets. After developing the first prototype, he gives it to Selene to test, noting that the Lycans will be unable to dig out these new silver nitrate bullets as they do with ordinary silver bullets.
Underworld: Blood WarsEdit
During the Lycan attack on the Eastern Coven, the Vampires fight back with silver nitrate bullets.
- Silver nitrate is actually clear in liquid form. However, the film uses something that looks more like mercury to give a clearer mental connection between the fluid and silver.
