For an overview of 2mm ammunition types, see 2mm EC.


The 2mm electromagnetic cartridge is a type of ammunition for use in weapons in Fallout 4.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Much like in Fallout 2, 2mm EC rounds are used by the incredibly powerful Gauss rifle. The rounds are exceptionally rare and expensive and take the most resources to craft. The drum magazine closely resembles the drum magazine for the combat shotgun.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • 2mm EC rounds are extremely hard to find in containers at lower levels, so much so that even with investment in the Scrounger perk it is possible that even by level 25-30 the Sole Survivor might only find a single stash of these rounds. They are more commonly found after level 30.
  • The stores only sell a very low amount of 2mm EC rounds but are very expensive. They will replenish their stock after 48 hours, however.
  • To gain large quantities of 2mm EC ammo fast, one may go to Diamond City market, buy out all vendors' ammo, then wait 48 hours on any local chair (bar stool, barbershop's sofa, etc.) to replenish the vendors' ammo stock.
  • The appearance of the magazine almost looks like a drum magazine of the combat shotgun from Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.
