Ammunition is used to fire weapons. The mechanics behind ammunition have changed throughout the Wolfenstein series.
Wolfenstein 3D Edit
Sources of Ammo Edit
- Ammo (8 bullets)
- Ammo (used) (4 bullets)
- Ammo Box (25 bullets)
- Ammo Pack (20 bullets, 5 rockets and 2 fuel)
- Machine Gun (6 bullets)
- Chain Gun (6 bullets)
- Fuel Can (14 fuel)
- Rocket Crate (5 Rockets)
Every enemy except bosses and dogs drop ammo upon death, in the form of a half-used magazine with four bullets. An exception is the SS: if one dies and the player does not have a Machine Gun, he will instead drop a machine gun with six bullets. (Though, they can sometimes drop machine guns in the Mac Family or if the player doesn't pick up the Machine Gun before killing another SS officer)
The Ammo Box appears in Spear of Destiny, as well as the Mac Family.
Return to Castle Wolfenstein Edit
In Return to Castle Wolfenstein, the different guns use different kinds of ammunition.
