.50 caliber round is an ammunition type in Fallout 4.


The following section is transcluded from .50 caliber. To modify, please edit the source page.

First introduced into service in 1921, the .50 MG round has served with distinction, used as ammunition for heavy machine guns and anti-materiel rifles alike. The availability of a number of specialized cartridge types ensures that a weapon using this ammunition can be adapted for a number of tactical purposes.


.50 caliber ammunition is rather rare in the wasteland given its use in military grade machine guns and rifles. This cartridge is capable of generating up to 3-4 kilojoules of energy, which is more than enough to penetrate most body armor and completely obliterate fleshy targets.

Weapons using this ammunition




  • .50 caliber rounds can occasionally be found in ammunition boxes and the inventories of weapon merchants.
  • They can also be manufactured using an ammunition plant.
