Giger uses what are known as "Birthmachine" babies in place of bullets themselves. These babies are armed with a set of what appears to be large goggles and a rifle held in the right arm. The shape of the lips of these babies eerily resembles that of the artist's himself. The babies are seated in a bullet case which is conveniently cut at a diagonal angle to show that just like the bisected pistol itself, while the shells theoretically exist, the contents are not bullets but human babies.
