|For an overview of 9mm ammunition types in the Fallout series of games, see 9mm.|
Background[edit | edit source]
Before the Great War, 9mm was the preferred type of ammunition for small weapons in the Southwest Commonwealth, while the military and the eastern and western seaboards tended to favor 10mm ammunition.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
9mm ball is one of the rarest ammunition types in Fallout and Fallout 2. Not to be confused with the standard 9mm rounds, which are an inferior alternative that does not appear in Fallout.
Weapons using this ammunition[edit | edit source]
Variants[edit | edit source]
There are two variants of 9mm ammunition:
- 9mm ball (Ammunition. Caliber: 9mm, ball.)
- 9mm (Ammunition. Caliber: 9mm.) - Fallout 2 only variant.
Locations[edit | edit source]
Fallout[edit | edit source]
Fallout 2[edit | edit source]
- New Reno commercial row, found in the footlocker in the back.
- Vault 15, found on the P90 raider's corpse.
- Willy Special Encounter, found on Willy's guards' corpses.
- Vault 8, extracted from Marcus' skin by Troy.
Bugs[edit | edit source]
- In Fallout, ammunition modifiers are not applied properly which makes the 9mm equal to any other kind of ammunition.
- In Fallout 2, some raiders in Vault 15 have H&K P90c's incorrectly loaded with 9mm ammo rather than 10mm. These weapons can be fired normally but can only be reloaded with the correct 10mm ammo. In addition, random encounter robbers carry 9mm but have the P90c loaded with 10mm. It seems that the P90 was originally going to be loaded with 9mm, but was changed shortly before release.
