10mm is a type of ammunition in Fallout 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from 10mm. To modify, please edit the source page.

Before the War, the powerful 10mm Automatic round was the standard ammunition for the Bureau of Alcohol, Drugs, Tobacco, Firearms and Lasers and other federal agencies, while the military was more reliant on experimental energy weapons (although it remained the round of choice for conventional pistols and submachine guns).[1] The G brand of ammunition was one of the most popular, offering excellent centerfire cartridges for a variety of applications.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The basic pistol round. The ammunition modifiers work properly, meaning there is an actual difference between firing AP and JHP ammo: One sucks, the other works.

10mm AP[edit | edit source]

10mmap.gif

A softer metal jacket covers a dense penetrator, while the bullet is loaded with a higher powder load, leading to improved muzzle velocity. However, improved performance against armored targets leads to impaired performance against softer targets, as the higher velocity reduces the amount of kinetic energy transferred to the target on impact.

In game terms, it is strictly inferior to the JHP variant, as the damage loss is not compensated for by the reduction in DR, not to mention that the DT of the target will even further reduce damage received compared to JHP.

10mm JHP[edit | edit source]

10mmjhp.gif

A hollow point 10mm bullet, where the hard metal jacket is applied specifically to increase bullet strength and create a middle ground between damage potential and penetration.

It is always superior to the AP variant, since the 25% increase in DR is compensated for by the increase in damage.
