Escape from Tarkov features various types of ammo of the same caliber which inflicts different effects. The type of ammo you are using can be the factor responsible for the upper hand in duels and vice versa. So, lets us see what EFT has implemented to their ammo system in-game.
EFT- Ammo Chart 2021
Escape from Tarkov is a first-person shooter but unlike any other generic shooter game, it has got some unique ammo mechanics that are quite interesting to play with. Featuring different effects of ammo of similar caliber and different penetration values, this game has an innovation within itself.
So, there is a certain damage number for each particular bullet that can penetrate a certain class of armor. The higher the armor class, the lower will be the penetration damage and lower will be the damage done by the ammo.
Every class of ammo has a constant damage number if done to an enemy without armor but when the enemy has one, the damage is severely lowered due to difficulty in penetration. So, to understand this, an EFT Ammo chart has been made by u/Armandik to help us understand the amount of damage a round of the particular caliber will do to a particular class of armor. Have a look at it down below.
