.45 ACP pistol cartridge. Used in select pistols and SMGs. — In-game description

.45 ACP Rounds are a type of ammunition in DayZ Standalone. They are found individually, packed in boxes, or pre-loaded in magazines. Empty the box to receive 25 usable .45 ACP rounds.



  • The .45 ACP ammunition is based on the real world .45 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol) rounds. It was designed by John Moses Browning in 1904 and was used by Colt in their M1911 pistol. Eventually, this cartridge became the US armed services' official pistol and submachine gun round for the next 70 years. Today, most handguns are chambered for 9mm cartridge, because they are smaller, lighter, and have more magazine capacity, however, the .45ACP still used in some law enforcement units that require more stopping power, and popular with large-caliber sport shooters.
  • There was a picture of Dean Hall, creator of DayZ, on the bottom of the ammunition box until 1.0.
