IT'S BOUNCIN' TIME!

That's the Miracle Man whose point of view we're following here. He's shooting bullets at Reed with hypnosis with a gun. We're not yet seeing that Reed's body can absorb the impact of the bullets, but we do see him avoid the bullets by turning into a ball and bouncing around.

Of course, a large ball is probably an easier target to hit, so Reed's relying on his speed and dexterity as a ball to avoid the Miracle Man's bullets.
