Ammunition, often referred to as ammo, is the term used for expendable ordnance material used in charging weapons of all kinds; as pistols, rifles, heavy weapons etc.

The 5.56×45mm NATO round is a rifle cartridge developed in the United States. It is a standard cartridge for NATO forces as well as many non-NATO countries. When the bullet impacts at high velocity and yaws in tissue, fragmentation creates a rapid transfer of energy which can result in dramatic wounding effects.
The 7.62x51mm NATO round was chiefly used by anti-terrorist units equipped with assault rifles for close-quarters combat until its widespread adoption among national security forces requiring enhanced combat responsiveness made it ubiquitous.
The 9x19mm cartridge was designed by Georg Luger and introduced in 1902 by the German weapons manufacturer Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken. Its low cost and wide availability (subject to jurisdiction) are self-sustaining contributors to the caliber's popularity. The effective range of the 9mm is about 100 m, although the bullet can still be lethal at much longer ranges. The 9mm cartridge combines a flat trajectory with moderate recoil.
With their combination of high stopping power and low recoil, weapons chambered for the 10mm Auto round (10x25mm) have become the sidearms of choice for paramilitary forces around the world.
12 gauge buckshot shellEdit
Standard 12 gauge shotgun shell; very effective for close-quarters combat against soft targets, but useless against body armor.
12 gauge sabot shellEdit
A 12 gauge shotgun shell surrounding a solid core of tungsten that can punch through all but the thickest hardened steel armor at close range; however, its ballistic profile will result in minimal damage to soft targets.
The 20mm high-explosive grenade complements the standard 7.62x51mm assault rifle by adding the capability to clear small rooms, foxholes, and blind corners using an underhand launcher.
The 40×46mm grenade is a military grenade caliber for grenade launchers in service with many armed forces and use by the US Army during the Vietnam War. The 40×46mm grenade is used in hand-held grenade launchers, with single or multi-shot capabilities.
The 30.06 (more correctly .30-06 Springfield or 7.62x63mm in metric notation) with its high velocity and accuracy has made sniper rifles using it the preferred tool of individuals requiring "one shot, one kill" for over fifty years.
Developed specifically for the FR-27 Combat Rifle, these .303-caliber titanium flechettes are loaded like bullets, but shed their cases on firing to open up steerable fins.
The .357 Magnum (9x33mm in metric notation) is a revolver cartridge created by Elmer Keith, Phillip Sharpe, Daniel Baird Wesson of firearms manufacturer Smith & Wesson, and Winchester. The .357 Magnum cartridge was introduced in 1934, and its use has since become widespread. This cartridge started the "Magnum" era of handgun ammunition, having a positive reputation for stopping power.
The .416 Ultrasonic heavy caliber is a military long-range high-caliber rifle cartridge created by Synergies Ltd, intended as a powerful sniper cartridge for spec-ops.
The mini-crossbow dart is a favored weapon for many "wet" operations; however, silent kills require a high degree of skill.
Mini-crossbow flare darts use a slow-burning incendiary device, ignited on impact, to provide illumination of a targeted area.
Hypodermic dart is a needle coupled with a hollow reservoir resembling a syringe filled with a chemical mixture out of different psychopharmaceuticals and anaesthetics such as Diazepam, Phencyclidine, Ketamine and Morphine. These are launched from a tranquilizer rifle using compressed gas, a tuft of fibers at the back of the missile serving as both fletching and wadding.
A pressurized canister of jellied gasoline for use with flamethrowers.
|"The canister is double-walled to minimize accidental detonation caused by stray bullets during a firefight."|

P.E.P.S. energy packEdit
The P.E.P.S. energy pack is a medium sized energy production unit use by the P.E.P.S. for create an invisible laser pulse which, upon contact with the target, ablates the surface and creates a small amount of exploding plasma.
"ANTIGONE pepper spray will incapacitate your attacker in UNDER TWO SECONDS. ANTIGONE -- better BLIND than DEAD. NOTE: Keep away from children under the age of five. Contents under pressure."
A clip of extruded, magnetically-doped plastic slugs that can be heated and delivered with devastating effect using a plasma rifle.
Polycarbonate arrow is a golden colored arrow made in polycarbonate consisting of a shaft with a carbide tipped bolt attached to the front end, with fletchings and a nock at the other, exclusively used by crossbows.
A portable charging unit for the riot prod.
A gyroscopically stabilized rocket with limited onboard guidance systems for in-flight course corrections. Engineered for use with the GEP gun.
Stun gun dartEdit
Stun gun dart is a high density electroshock discharge dart manufactured by Bobson Synthetics Group. It capable of delivering an electromuscular disruption charge of up to 20,000 volts when deployed in any stun gun-type weapon.
A mini-crossbow dart tipped with a succinylcholine-variant that causes complete skeletal muscle relaxation, effectively incapacitating a target in a non-lethal manner.
Tritium power cellEdit
Tritium power cell is an atomic high energy density low-power cell using the emission from the radioactive isotope of hydrogen tritium by non-thermal conversion (extracting a fraction of the incident energy rather than using thermal energy to run electrons in a cycle) to generate electricity.
Typhoon 10mm stainless steel ballEdit
The Typhoon 10mm stainless steel ball is a particular ammo manufactured by Sea-Tec ltd and used by the mechanical augmentation Typhoon Explosive System. It's a 10mm gauge, stainless steel ball bearings, molded in a frangible diffusion matrix and spin-stabilized for maximum range when deployed by the Typhoon Explosive System.
A post-2052 ammunition type in which a nano-mass is dynamically configured by any Mako Ballistics weapon into ammunition of its appropriate type (anything from a pistol shot to a guided rocket, or even incendiary fuel for the flamethrower) and allows all Mako Ballistics weapons to use the same ammunition.
The white-phosphorus rocket, or "wooly peter," was designed to expand the mission profile of the GEP gun. While it does minimal damage upon detonation, the explosion will spread a cloud of particularized white phosphorus that ignites immediately upon contact with the air.
