Soft Point AmmoEdit
Soft Point Ammunition has increased wounding capability at close to medium ranges, but the bullet travels slightly slower in comparison to standard ammunition.
Pros: Reduces damage drop off at medium range (approximately 15m-40m*).
- the actual ranges vary per weapon and weapon type
Cons : Lowers the bullet velocity (resulting in greater bullet drop).
High velocity ammunition has a faster travel time and is more effective at long range. Vertical recoil is slightly higher in comparison to standard ammunition.
Pros: Damage drop off past medium range (approximately 40m*) is reduced and bullet velocity is increased (resulting in less bullet drop).
- actual range varies per weapon and weapon type.
Cons: Increased vertical recoil (6-12%).
Slug Ammunition, also known simply as "Slugs" are a different type of ammo for every shotgun. It replaces the standard buckshot ammunition with a slug round. Slug Ammunition increases the effective range of a shotgun. Automatic and Semi-Automatic shotgun slugs will deal 500 damage @8m down to 334 damage @40m, and Pump action slugs will deal 800 damage @8m down to 400 damage @40m. Note that all shotguns, including Vanu shotguns, experience severe bullet drop.
Explosive Bolt Edit
Replaces the default bolt with an explosive tipped variant that does light damage to MAX units and other enemy armor.
Reduces magazine size from 4 to 3. Damage fall offs with the distance, it takes 12 shots to kill MAX from close range and ~17 from medium.
Detect Bolt Edit
Replaces the default bolt with a low damage variant that includes a sensor device. The sensor can detect enemy movement within a limited range.
Projectile Dealing around ~100 damage.
