About DayZ Ammo Types

Ammo types in DayZ can be split into 4 different ammo categories that are as follows: Pistol Caliber, Intermediate Caliber, Rifle Ammo_Caliber and finally Shotgun Shells.

DayZ ammo types have a lot of stats that impact how the ammo will perform with the weapon it goes with. These stats are only the base stats of the ammo type. Because of this, a lot of the stats are heavily impacted by the weapon they are used by.

Most weapons in DayZ will only allow one ammo type. However, some weapons allow 2 or more ammo types, and can therefore impact the perform of the weapon based on the ammunition you use.
