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 AmmoEdit

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 AmmunitionEdit

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.
