There are 19 types of Ammunition in the game used with the various types of Weapons. Here is the full list of all Ammunition types including all guns which use them.

As of October 16, 2011 ammo boxes bought in the Credit Shop contain 9999 rounds and cannot be traded. It is also possible to find stacks of ammo legitimately, during 3x ammo looting events, that hold more than the actual maximum. Those are treated just like the big ammo stacks you can can buy from the Credit shop.

.32 ACP rounds are lightweight and compact, but have a short range and low stopping power. However, this ammo is quite cheap and easy to manufacture, and is commonly found in and around Nastya's Holdout and occasionally around Dogg's Stockade.

Used with:
Pistols: Beta Tomcat, Gerring HP, Williams PPK, and Fifty Seven
SubMachine Guns: Skorpion and FM P90

George Luger originally presented the 9mm Parabellum round in 1902, and it was adopted in 1904 and 1906 by the German Navy and German army, respectively. The 9mm Parabellum was originally designed to be lethal up to a distance of 50 meters, but the bullet is still lethal at distances slightly greater than 50m. Against the unrelenting savagery of the infected, this lethality isn't as useful as it should be, but with enough rounds, most normal infected can be brought down by the standard 9mm.

Used with:
Pistols: Lock 19, CK 75, Lock 17, and Luger
SubMachine Guns: UZI, MP5 and PP90

The .357 Magnum round was the caliber that started the "Magnum" era of handgun ammunition. Built for use in pistols (the most famous being the Colt Python revolver), it was famous in the pre-outbreak world for its stopping power. Being both fairly powerful and relatively cheap, the .357 is regarded as a decent general-use round. Unfortunately, one of its main drawbacks is the narrow range of guns with which it is compatible; the Beta 8000 and the Kolt Python are the only guns available in Fairview which chamber the .357 round.

Used with:
Pistols: Kolt Python and Beta 8000


.38 Bullets

Scrap Value per Box: $ 400

A step down from the .357, the .38-caliber bullet is capable of much higher bullet velocities than the standard 9mm Parabellum, but without the sharp recoil of the .357 Magnum. It is regarded as a well-balanced cartridge with a flat trajectory, good accuracy and high 'muzzle energy'. Additionally, it is capable of being chambered in SMGs as well as certain pistols, delivering deadly, powerful hits that can push back all but the fastest zombie mutants.

Used with:
Pistols: Webster 1942 and Lock 25
SubMachine Guns: Gramm M11

Scrap Value per Bullet: $ 0.60
Scrap Value per Box: $ 480

Another successor to the 9mm round, the .40 handgun round possesses nearly identical accuracy to its predecessor. What sets it apart, though, is its greater 'muzzle energy' -an improvement which gives it much more power than the Parabellum. Consequently, the guns which can chamber this powerful bullet are often found in the hands of survivors who regularly frequent the high-threat levels in the eastern part of Fairview.

Used with:
Pistols: CK 99, SIC Apollo, and USP
SubMachine Guns: UMP


.45 Bullets

While the .40 handgun ammo possesses more pressure (about 14,000 more psi) than the .45 handgun bullet, the .45 bullet's larger size is considerably useful for stopping large zombies in their tracks. The .45 ACP was originally designed in 1909 for the Colt 1911. Since its release in 1911, the Colt 1911 hs been the most popular and widely used handgun in America, both in civilian and military hands. The .45 ACP is no different, with nearly every manufacturer chambering a pistol in this powerful, yet comfortable caliber. Oddly enough, not a single Colt 1911 has been found in Fairview. One can only assume that their owners used to them to escape the city in the earlier days of the infection. Fairview's engineers have managed to modify the Kolt Anaconda to chamber the more plentiful .45 ACP round, instead of it's older, meaner brother, the .45 Long Colt.

Used with:
Pistols: Kolt Anaconda and CK 97B
SubMachine Guns: Chicago Typewriter

Considered one of the most powerful semi-automatic handgun munitions around, the .50 round is capable of matching low-caliber rifle rounds in terms of raw power. The bullet screams extreme in all aspects: muzzle velocity, impact force, stopping power. If you are wielding any gun chambering the .50 round, you can be rest assured that almost no zombie will be able to avoid the crippling power of this bullet.

Used with:
Pistols: Desert Fox, SW 500, Alpha Bull, 475 Magnum, Dusk Enforcer and Corpse Shooter
SubMachine Guns: K-50M, Criss Victor, and Dusk SMG

Combining the resources of all Outposts, Fairview's engineers have succeeded in designing a unique caliber of handgun bullet - the most powerful handgun bullet available, no less. Pulling out all the stops, engineers created an even bigger, stronger round. The .55 handgun is equally capable of stopping multiple tendrils in their tracks and fighting on an equal footing with the strongest 'boss zombies', such as the Flaming Wraith. Just one of these rounds will often be enough to cripple any non-boss zombie.

Used with:
Pistols: Greyhawk 55, Vlock XD11, DoubleShot AAX, and Desert Rat
Submachine Guns: Uziel 14mm, Handshock A8, Street Dog 99, Nine Cutter-X, and X-Dusk SMG.

Rifle Ammunition

The 5.56x45 standard NATO rifle round is a standard rifle caliber with excellent penetrating capacity, being able to go through 15-20 inches of living flesh, and roughly 10-13 inches of infected flesh. However, this bullet is still the weakest of the available calibers.

Used with:
Rifles: Beta RX4, Mini-41, SL8, SIC 550
Assault Rifles: FM FNC, M16, Mesa ACR, SA80, Stell AUG, XM8, and M4
Heavy Machine Guns: FM Mitrail

Scrap Value per Bullet: $ 0.60
Scrap Value per Box: $ 360

A lengthened and modified version of the 7.62x51mm NATO round, which eliminates several flaws of the 5.5mm round. Additionally, the bullet does not suffer from issues with fragmenting properly, and penetrative ability is not affected as much when traveling over distances greater than 50 meters. Certain guns (M60, etc.) use the more powerful 7.62x51mm round, therefore dealing more damage per hit.

Used with:
Rifles: M24, M1 Garand, Glacial Warfare, Chesterfield, M21, MSG-9, Dragon SVD
Assault Rifles: FM FAL, AK 47 and BM59 (Unique)
Heavy Machine Guns: FM MAG and M60

The 9x39mm SP-6 variant round is a very rare, subsonic rifle caliber. Originally designed by an arms contractor of the Russian Army, it was intended for use by the Russian military's special forces. Being designed as a subsonic round in order to allow use in suppressed rifles, it is not as powerful as the 7.5mm or other large-caliber rounds. Nevertheless, this particular variant is still capable of penetrating up to 10mm of mild steel while retaining enough energy to neutralize an unprotected human (or infected) target behind it.

Used with:
Rifles: VSS Vintorez, Rebellion, Gauss Rifle (Unique), and Dusk Carbine
Heavy Machine Guns: Corpse Destroyer


12.7 mm Rifle Bullets
12.7 mm Rifle Bullets

Scrap Value per Bullet: $ 1
Scrap Value per Box: $ 600

The 12.7mm round is so big and powerful, it's classified as an HMG or anti-material cartridge. Guns such as Hawk OP96 and M82A2 use the weaker variant (12.7x99mm) while guns such as Miniguns or "overpowered" rifles like the 577 Rex use the much stronger variant (12.7x108mm), which is slightly longer and thicker, allowing it to hold more powder. This is the ideal round for taking on the likes of Flaming Giant Spiders, Flaming Wraiths, and the dreaded Black Titan.

Used with:
Rifles: Hawk OP96, M82A2, 577 Rex and Corpse Piercer
Heavy Machine Guns: Dusk MAG, XLGunner-8 and Scar 9000
Miniguns: Vulcan and GAU-19

Scrap Value per Bullet: $ 1.2
Scrap Value per Box: $ 720

Combining the resources of all Outposts, the most powerful rifle bullet has been created: the 14mm rifle bullet. This monster of a bullet is jacketed with an extremely ferromagnetic type of steel, which ultimately led to its implementation as the standard round to be chambered by the Marksman G8. Additionally, Fairview's engineers designed the round with every possible advantage: Fragmentation, extremely high maximum velocity, large size (allowing it to hold a massive amount of a new type of compressed powder), and a Teflon coating to reduce barrel friction. However, all the advantages packed into this new round make it compatible only with some of the new firearms developed by Fairview's guild of engineers.

Used with:
Rifles: Ironsight 33-F, Marksman G8, Worg Carbine, Longshot PP10, and X-Dusk Carabine.
Assault Rifles: Hammerhead 47.
Heavy Machine Guns: X-Dusk Mag and Wraith Cannon

Shotgun Shells

Scrap Value per Box: $ 160

A lightweight, small-shot round, generally used for skeet/trapshooting and hunting waterfowl, the 20-gauge shell is a cheap, versatile round. Like all shotgun shells, once fired it releases a cloud of lead pellets which will dig into a enemy and cripple it with pain. However, against the deadened nerves of the zombies, this shotgun shell's capacity to debilitate a target with pain is much less effective, forcing users to shoot many more times and completely bring down their targets. Nonetheless, many users find this shotgun shell useful due to its light weight and cheapness to manufacture.

Used with:
Shotguns: Mancini M1 and Sega-20


16 Gauge Shells
16 Gauge Shells

Scrap Value per Shell: $ 0.70
Scrap Value per Box: $ 280

Due to its larger size, the 16-gauge shell is far more effective than the much smaller 20-gauge. This makes the shell more deadly, and will effectively tear into a zombie and slow it down. However it isn't as practical for use against the more durable mutants, such as Bones and Brutes, or self-healing mutants such as the flaming zombies. However, due to overstocking of 20 Gauge and 12 Gauge shells along with failed promotion attempts of the 16 Gauge in the past, very few shotguns in Fairview utilises the 16 Gauge shells.

Used with:
Shotguns: Highlander and Washington 870


12 Gauge Shells

One of the most powerful shotgun shells manufactured, only a few types of ammunition are able to match or beat the 12-gauge. It discharges a closely packed cloud of large lead shot, which can instantly kill most normal infected with a single close-range shot, and punch numerous holes in any mutant infected.

Used with:
Shotguns: Chester 1300, Washington 1100, WALL 500, SPSA 12, Corpse Blaster, Mannberg 500, Sweeper, USAN-12, AA-12 and Dusk Striker

Combining the resources of all Outposts, the most powerful shotgun shell has been created-- the fully customized 10 gauge shell. Unlike other shotgun shells, this specially created 10 gauge shell was designed with lead balls coated in nitromannitol-- a powerful and highly sensitive explosive, stronger than nitroglycerine (dynamite)-- and encased in a stabilizer compound that almost instantly disintegrates when exposed to air. Upon striking a target, the nitromannitol violently detonates due to its extreme fragmentation potential. The end result: A shell that releases explosive fragments which further shatter into smaller, faster pieces of explosive shrapnel upon contact with a target-- an unavoidable, utter barrage of exploding buckshot. While a 12-gauge shell might tear a zombie full of holes, the 10-gauge shell will literally blow a zombie to pieces.

Used with:
Shotguns: Painshot 10, Biforce C7, Ace Barrel GZ3, Buckblast 99A, and X-Dusk Striker.

Scrap Value per Grenade: $ 2
Scrap Value per Stack: $ 400

A simple explosive, grenades are meant to be fired at distances over 50 meters. Once it reaches its target, the grenade explodes and fragments into hundreds of deadly shards at extreme speeds - easily blowing apart a weak zombie. However due to the explosion, a loud blast is created which will attract the attention of off-screen zombies.

Used with:
Explosives: M79, HK69, GM94, RG6, Falcon-MM1, XM25, PAW-20, Dusk Launcher and Corpse Erruptor

Scrap Value per Grenade: $3
Scrap Value per Stack: $600

Combining the resources of all Outposts, the most powerful grenade has been created: the heavy grenade. Unlike previous grenades where the explosive powder used is white phosphorus, the Outpost Engineers used a compressed powder form of nitromannitol (the same high-power explosive used in the new 10-gauge shells). The engineers decided to take additional advantage of this by modifying the grenade casings, giving them "shaped charge" heads--made from a tungsten-tantalum alloy to make them armor-piercing--so that nearly all energy is sent into the target. Take a shot with one of these into an infected crowd and by the time the smoke clears, you will rarely see anything besides a huge, gore-spattered crater where the infected once stood.

Used with:
Explosives: Immolator AD, Bishop CE9, Junker 6, Boomer PX, and X-Dusk Launcher.
