Take a look at this image above. This is how i want the bullets to look like. shoot red lines.

Now take a look at this image above. I am tring to make my enemy boss shoot blue bullets. the blue thing you see in image is the bullet. this is the problem it is not shooting the way i want it.

i have two arraylists. 'enemyBossStore' arraylist will online hold one enemy boss. 'eBBulletStore' will hold enemy bullets.

main.java

         EnemyBoss enemyBossObject;
            ArrayList<EnemyBoss> enemyBossStore = new ArrayList<EnemyBoss>();

            EBBullet eBBulletObject;
            ArrayList<EBBullet> eBossBulletStore = new ArrayList<EBBullet>();
    ...
    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)//main game loop
        {
          ....
             levelsObject.nextLevel(enemyBossObject, enemyBossStore);   //create emeny boss in this class
          ...

          //user methods on Enemy Boss. so it can move and shoot
                for(int i = 0; i < enemyBossStore.size(); i++){
                    enemyBossObject = (EnemyBoss)enemyBossStore.get(i);
                    enemyBossObject.enemyBossMove();
                    enemyBossObject.enemyBossShootBullet(eBBulletObject, eBossBulletStore, topMenuObject);
                }

                //create Enemy Boss bullets
                for(int i = 0; i < eBossBulletStore.size(); i++){
                    eBBulletObject = (EBBullet)eBossBulletStore.get(i);
                    if(!eBBulletObject.getDead()){
                        eBBulletObject.eBBulletMove();
                        eBBulletObject.eBBulletWCollision();
                    }
                    else
                        eBossBulletStore.remove(i);  
                }
        }
        ...
public void paintComponent(Graphics g)
        {
        ...
            //create Enemy Boss on level 4
                if(topMenuObject.getLevel() == 4){ //test to see if its lvl 4
                    enemyBossObject = (EnemyBoss)enemyBossStore.get(0);   //paint enemy boss    
                    enemyBossObject.paint(g);

                    //paint Enemy Boss Bullet
                    for(int i = 0; i < eBossBulletStore.size(); i++){
                        eBBulletObject = (EBBullet)eBossBulletStore.get(i);
                        eBBulletObject.paint(g);
                    }

                }
        ...

    }
}

in level class iam creating the enmey by these two lines

     EnemyBoss enemyBossObject = new EnemyBoss(600, 100);
            eBossBulletStore.add(enemyBossObject);

That code looks like every Boss fires a new bullet on every pass through the game loop - that's a lot of bullets. Or is there some other code that determines how often a new bullet is fired?
