Hello my dudes, welcome to another stupid post that i usually make. So as of 21 January 2018, update 3.4.0 rolled in.
What they introduced, apart from the M1858 New Army Revolver, is that they added Armour Piercing and Hollow Point rounds
What is AP and HP?
Armour Piecring rounds allow you to pierce through armour irl, but since theres no such thing as Kevlars in PF, we have the next best thing. Walls
Hollow Point rounds are rounds that make your bullet smash into a tiny plate on impact (wait, dont all bullets do?) and they do not have a proper tip, they have a hollow tip, just look at this 9mm
Disclaimer: i used the RPK as a demo gun for this. It’s my most used gun in the game sooooooo?
Armour Piercing rounds can penetrate walls far better than a normal round and what they do is increase minimum damage on all guns
Hollow Points rounds allow the gun to increase their max damage, but at a cost of reducing wall penetration
So here’s the base damage and wallbang of the RPK
now heres the AP
For some odd reason, the AP makes the Minimum damage of the RPK go waaaaay higher than the Maximum damage, like look at this!
Now for the HP
Armour Piercing: 1000 kills
Hollow Point: 2000 kills owo
The Heckler and Koch MP7 and FN Herstal P90 are PDWs, which are essentially SMGs with AP rounds, so therefore if you equip the AP rounds onto these PDWs, you can actually simulate the real MP7 and P90 (sans armours reeeeeeee)
There’s no AP or HP for snipers, rip my Mosin with HP
so what do you think?
- I like these new rounds
- I like the AP
- I like the HP
- I hate this update
- FAL (i know, but please legit choose something else)
