As compared to other ammunition types, .50 caliber is quite uncommon, and when it can be found at vendors, it is rather expensive. It may sometimes be found on dead raiders and in ammunition boxes in varying quantities.


  • Scrounger has a very noticeable impact in the frequency of .50 caliber ammo, making the ammo type significantly more common.
  • The .50 caliber round is unusual in the fact that it is the only ammo type in the game that does not have any weapon chambered for it in their default state, all weapons that are capable of firing the round are conversions of other smaller caliber weapons.
