The game currently has seven ammo types, with three of them being special limited ammo. These ammo types have their own rarity and quirks.

Light Rounds[edit | edit source]

The Light Round icon

Weapons that use Light Rounds typically deal less damage than weapons of the same class that use Heavy Rounds.svg Heavy Rounds but they also have higher rates of fire and/or less recoil, making them a good choice for close to medium range. Each inventory slot can hold a stack of up to 80 rounds.

Heavy Rounds[edit | edit source]

The Heavy Round icon

Heavy Ammo is the highest damage physical round that can be found in the game and can open doors when shot on the handle. Depending on the weapon, the heavy bullet can deal lethal damage on a head-shot, and heavy ammo weapons are generally recommended as performance all around weapons. Each inventory slot can hold a stack of up to 80 rounds.

Energy Ammo[edit | edit source]

The Energy Ammo icon.

Energy ammo is an ammo type for the Triple Take, the Devotion LMG, the Charge Rifle, and the Havoc Rifle. It has very little drop. Due to it's rarity, it can be difficult to obtain enough energy ammo for the Devotion's and the Havoc Rifle's fast ammo consumption. The easiest way to get it is through death boxes. Each inventory slot can hold a stack of up to 80 ammo.

Special Ammo[edit | edit source]

Special Ammo is a unique type of ammo that is unique to its weapon, can only be found on its weapon, takes no inventory space and cannot be dropped. Each weapon that uses special ammo can only use its own special ammo, and not the ammo of other weapons (for example, you cannot use the special shotgun shells of the Mastiff Shotgun with the Kraber .50-cal Sniper or vice versa). When you pick up the gun you only have the ammo the gun comes with.
