Unlike Asteroid bullets, which appear as lines, Gimlet projectiles are vaguely ellipsoidal in shape, with a short, luminous tail and thin circles surrounding them. When used by a Shooter, their size depends on their number and the trion capacity of the user.
Gimlet's "cover" is twice as durable as Asteroid's, granting it enhanced penetration. It is used to breach sturdy Shields or firm armor as well as to inflict damage.[BBF Q142] Thanks to their extraordinarily high trion levels, Izumi and Ninomiya can create Gimlet bullets so powerful they can break the armor of Rabbit, which is capable of deflecting an Ibis blast, and the combined shield of four Idras, previously shown to be able to withstand multiple shots from Sniper Triggers.
As a composite bullet, Gimlet is very powerful, but, when used by Shooters, it requires times and focus to be created, rendering the user vulnerable in the process, so it cannot be used uniformly. The time necessary to merge the two trion cubes ranges from one minute for inexperienced users to a mere two seconds for masters.

- Like many other Gunner Triggers, Gimlet may be named after a missile: the SA-16 Gimlet, an early version of the 9K38 Igla. Alternatively, it may be derived from the homonymous rocket.
- A gimlet is also a drilling tool.
