9x19mm is a type of ammunition in Fallout and Fallout 2.

Background

Main article: 9mm

Before the Great War, 9mm was the preferred type of ammunition for small weapons in the American Southwest, while the military and the eastern and western seaboards tended to favor the more powerful 10mm ammunition. 9mm was infamous for its inferior lethality and has kept that reputation even after the Great War.[1]

Characteristics

9mm ball is one of the rarest ammunition types in Fallout and Fallout 2, used by one weapon in both games. There is also a single P90c loaded with them in Vault 15. In Fallout, ammunition modifiers are not applied properly which makes the 9mm equal to any other kind of ammunition.

Variants

There are two variants of 9mm ammunition:

  • 9mm ball (Ammunition. Caliber: 9mm, ball.)
  • 9mm (Ammunition. Caliber: 9mm.) - Fallout 2 only variant

Bugs

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.

    Benny: "Yeah, hello... Well, serves me right for using a 9mm."
