Escape From Tarkov Ammo Chart

Escape from Tarkov has some of the most realistic projectile and ammunition mechanics ever put in a video game.

Bullets have numerous properties; like slowing down as the farther they travel, dropping over large distances, ricocheting after striking a solid surface and they even have a chance to shatter after entering a body.

Before you take a look at the charts below, you need to know what the headings, and abbreviations/symbols actually mean.

  • Penetration Power: This represents the bullets chances to penetrate the enemy armor, and the damage it deals if the armor is not penetrated.
  • Damage Value: The HP taken off of the enemy’s total HP pool when a bullet penetrates their armor.
  • Armor Damage Ratio %: The percentage of damage of the bullet which is dealt to the enemy when the bullet does not penetrate their armor.
  • Projectile Speed: The initial velocity of the bullet, measured in meters/second. Over distance, the velocity goes down due to air resistance, gravity, and a couple of other properties.
  • Fragmentation Chance (Out of 1): The bullet’s chance to shatter after entering the enemy’s body. Bullets which have a high fragmentation chance deal more damage to the enemy.
  • Ricochet Chance (Out of 1): The chance of the bullet to ricochet off of a solid surface after striking it at an angle.

Effectiveness Against Armor (EAA)

  • S: Practically disregards the armor. Initially penetrates more than 80% of the time.
  • A: Very powerful, but not quite as effective as S tier. Initially penetrates most of the time, but can sometimes take up to 3 hits.
  • B: Decently powerful. Usually takes from 3 to 5 hits to penetrate.
  • C: Average effectiveness. Takes from 5 to 9 hits to penetrate.
  • D: Unimpressive effectiveness. Takes from 9 to 13 hits to penetrate.
  • E: Ineffective. Takes from 13 to 20 hits to penetrate.
  • F: Pretty much useless. Takes more than 20 hits to penetrate.
