Alternate ammunition allows a firearm or weapon system to serve different purposes depending on its load. Depending on the game, alternate ammo may be provided either through specializations or as weapon accessories.


Alternate ammunition for firearms was introduced in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 as specializations. Battlefield 3 combined ammunition with other accessories in their own customization system.
