Ammo compatibility

#1BobaFattPosted 10/25/2010 1:20:27 AM
One of the loading screens mentioned that some types of ammo are interchangeable , e.g., a weapon that uses 5.56mm rounds can also use .223 rounds, but I can't remember what they all were and I haven't seen that screen lately. Does any one know or remember which are interchangeable and how exactly it works? Is it just a matter of using the ammo swap hot key?

I remember it said the .38 special could be used for either the .357 or .44 magnum. I'm not sure which, though.

there is a ammo swap key ? is that the up on d pad ? never really knew what that did, ammo management and crafting is a bit confusing in this game, i better invest in a game guide.

.38 special is compatible with .357 magnum

.44 special is compatible with .44 Magnum

.223 is compatible with 5.56

So is the swap key just used to interchange with the ammo or does it automatically just add on?

.223 is pretty much the same as 5.56, 12.7x99mm is also the exact same as .50 BMG.

I'd like to know as well, I swapped my ammo around but I couldn't get the .38 special ammo into the sniper rifle.
