9mm round is a type of ammunition manufactured by Donaustahl GmbH in Fallout: New Vegas.

BackgroundEdit

This section is transcluded from 9mm. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

Before the Great War, 9mm was the preferred type of ammunition for small weapons in the Southwest Commonwealth, while the military and the Eastern and Western seaboards tended to favor 10mm ammunition.

CharacteristicsEdit

The 9mm is a medium caliber auto-pistol round, suitable for use in handguns and submachine guns. While significantly rarer in more northern places of the United States, the southern states of Nevada and Arizona do enjoy widespread use of 9mm chambered weapons, compared to the more powerful and popular but expensive 10mm round firearms.

VariantsEdit

9mm, hollow pointEdit

Hollow point bullets mushroom and break up on impact, causing massive trauma on fleshy, unarmored targets. However, this also means they break up when they hit things like armor plate, drastically reducing the weapon's penetrating power.

9mm round, +PEdit

These rounds are designed to fire at a higher internal pressure than standard ammunition. This ensures higher projectile velocity and stopping power, and affords a slight armor piercing ability but at the cost of requiring more maintenance than usual. +P ammunition can be bought at most vendors in small quantities, but can be purchased in mass quantities from Bardon at Hoover Dam.

9mm round, JHP hand loadEdit

A new ammunition added with the add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal, JHP, or jacketed hollow point, uses a metal-clad bullet which retains most of the damage bonus of ordinary hollow point rounds, but with a less severe armor penalty.

Behind the scenesEdit

The 9mm ammunition is comparable to the real world 9x19mm Luger/Parabellum/NATO.[1]

BugsEdit

  • pcIcon pc xbox360Icon xbox360 ps3Icon ps3 Although +P rounds are available from most vendors, their scarcity from some vendors, particularly Gun Runners, appears to be unintentional. Specifically, +P rounds are not included in a vendor list which contains all other non-standard types of bullet ammunition.[verified]
