.45 round is an ammunition type in Fallout 4.


The following section is transcluded from .45 caliber. To modify, please edit the source page.

The .45 Auto is an effective pistol cartridge for use against soft, unarmored targets. It combines accuracy and good stopping power, with low visibility and moderate recoil. It has earned itself an almost legendary reputation as a man-stopper, ever since its first introduction in the early 20th century.


The .45 caliber round is a higher power alternative to the more common .38 caliber round; although the bullet travels slower than the .38 round, the sheer difference in weight allows the .45 round to transmit more energy, leaving a significantly larger wound cavity.
