Ammunition Armor-Piercing Rounds (APR) Beyond the standard assortment of regular ammunition there is focused development on armor piercing rounds beyond those, for example of the .303 caliber (British rifle) and .30-06 caliber M2 (U.S. rifle) armor-piercing rounds, but for a handgun rather than rifle. A necessity in a time when “armor”, both physical and psychic, is in play. Reduces Armor Rating by -1. High-Damage Rounds (HDR) Specialized overpressure, i.e. loaded to a higher internal pressure than is standard for ammunition of its caliber, 9mm cartridges that use relatively light bullets at high muzzle velocities for both pistols and submachine guns are in development. However, the use of such overpressure ammunition induces more stress on the firing weapon that has been found to induce catastrophic failure. Increases damage from A0 to A1 (d10+1) Shredder Rounds Designed for use in the CuZtom Assassinator pistol this 7.65mm caliber round both tumbles and fragments on impact to cause maximum damage. Increases damage from A0 to A4 (d10+4) “Witherer” Bullets Ash from the Otherside leeches away life energy, causing the victim to essentially wither away, and is ultimately fatal; the speed at which the subject dies is directly proportional to the exposure level. Internal contamination maximizes the effect and so was born the so-called “Witherer Bullet” that, based on incendiary bullet design, instead contains Ash. Luckily such hand-made ammunition is rare.
