What is Dragon’s Breath shotgun ammunition?

Dragon’s Breath is a special incendiary round for 12-gauge shotguns. Firing a Dragon’s Breath round causes an impressive fire effect from the shotgun barrel, similar to a flamethrower. While Dragon’s Breath rounds are not practical for hunting, combat, or self-defense, the effect that they create makes them extremely popular for recreational purposes.

The fire effect from Dragon’s Breath rounds is created by small magnesium pellets. These burn between 3,000 and 4,000 degrees fahrenheit, and the flame can extend up to 100-300 feet.

Dragon’s Breath in Pop Culture

Dragon’s Breath or references to it can be seen in pop culture as well. The popular online video game Fortnite by Epic Games contains an item called the Dragon’s Breath Shotgun. The behavior of this weapon isn’t exactly accurate to real-world Dragon’s Breath rounds, though shooting an enemy player with it will amusingly set them on fire.

Dragon’s Breath is also an item in the video game Minecraft, and is the name of a particularly spicy red pepper.
