The Ammunition Package is a deployable package that resupplies ammunition to nearby allies, It's deployed from the Engineer's Class Ability. The Ammunition Package is a vital tool in any assault, allowing players to resupply their ammunition even when in hostile territory.
The Ammunition Package (or Ammo Kit) is dropped by pressing the class ability key (default: F) it is a hand dropped box similar to mines that resupplys ammo at a steady rate to infantry in a radius around itself Ignoring obstructions. When used by a friendly the Engineer will receive a notification plus a small amount of xp for each tick of ammo supplied, however this won't happen when being used by an enemy. Upgrading the Ammo Kit increases the time until it despawns and from the third rank onward also increases the radius of affect in a sphere around the box. As It's so easily deployed Engineers should drop ammo kits as often as possible especially if a ally has a ammo icon (three bullets in a row) above their head as it's a easy source of xp and ribbons. A well placed Ammo kit in a busy battle can provide a almost constant stream of XP for any engineer with a ammo kit in a radius (Ammo Kits do not override each other but also do not provide any additional benefit if overlapping) although after a high amount of XP has been earned from ammo resupply in a short period the ammo ticks will stop giving XP for a short while, this is to curb farming.
It's not noted in game, but it appears that the last rank of certification allows an engineer to place one extra ammunition pack at the same time.
Ammo packs can be destroyed by weapons fire and EMP grenades.
