"Fires an armor piercing round. Increases bullet penetration and minimum damage while decreasing maximum damage (Can lead to over penetration causing less damage up close.)" - In-game Description


History

While armor-piercing shells have been around since the 1860's, when ironclads were becoming a naval threat, and small arms ammo has existed in the form of 'K' bullets since WW1, it wasn't until around WW2 that armor piercing ammunition for small arms were issued in wide spread fashion. For small arms, bullets were cast in either hardened steel, tungsten, or tungsten carbide, although depleted uranium has been used in larger scale weapons.

In-game

Armor Piercing (or AP) is a type of ammo located in the ’Other’ category. It is designed to be used to penetrate thick walls at the cost of lowering the maximum damage. As of version 3.4.1e, the maximum damage range for all guns goes down to 0 studs.

"Fires an hollow point round. Increases maximum damage while decreasing minimum damage and bullet penetration." - In-game Description


History

Hollow points were created in the 19th Century, sold as express bullets. These were cast entirely in a soft lead alloy. In the 1890's, British handgun cartridge designs included hollow points, and were called "manstoppers." In 1898, in the Hague Convention, the hollow point was banned in international warfare upon the conclusion that it violated the laws of war. However, in spite of that, hollow point bullets see frequent use in civilian and law enforcement arsenals as a guarantee that whoever is shot will become incapacitated. They are also less likely to hit bystanders from over-penetrating or ricocheted bullets.

In-game

The Hollow Point (or HP) is a type of ammo located in the ‘Other’ category. It is designed to be used at closer ranges and significantly raises the maximum damage at the cost of lowering the minimum damage significantly. It also removes bullet penetration for any gun.

Trivia

  • This was released on January 21, 2018 as a part of the Winter Update.
  • This was released in an update called the ‘YOLO ammo types’ implying that the developers have not tested this attachment as it didn’t make an appearance in the Test Place and the devs have asked for feedback on the loading screen.
    • However, previous attachments in the CTE were similar if not identical to the ones now currently in-game.
  • On January 24, 2018, the ammunition types caused some player's to rank reset to 20. They only have lost their rank and not other data.
  • As of version 3.4.1e, the HP rounds damage buff doesn't seem to work, despite it looking like it changed the damage for that gun in the stats.
  • Despite the changes in the AP/HP rounds, the description for these rounds has not updated as of 3.4.1e.
