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.
Compared to a standard cartridge, magnum cartridges contain more propellant (or a different formulation), providing higher power and 25% damage increase.
