.50 caliber rounds are an ammunition in Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4, Fallout 76, Fallout Tactics and Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. They are a very heavy, very powerful kind of round, primarily used in Big Guns.

Background[edit | edit source]

First introduced into service in 1921, the .50 MG round has served with distinction, used as ammunition for heavy machine guns and anti-materiel rifles alike. The availability of a number of specialized cartridge types ensures that a weapon using this ammunition can be adapted for a number of tactical purposes.
