12ga 00 buck shell with 8 pellets. Used in shotguns. — In-game description


12ga 00 Buckshots 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 10 usable 12ga 00 Buckshot rounds.

The buckshot shells are filled with 8 smaller lead pellets. When fired, the pellets spread out in a spray pattern increasing your area of effect. This results in a great chance of hitting your target and enables you the ability to hit multiple targets. The disadvantage is it decreases your damage and range compared to a single projectile.

12ga 00 Buckshots also damages any armor it hits.

  • Robert Frost's Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening can be seen on the left side of the box.
  • The name and design of the box seems to be a parody of the American ammunition brand Hornady. This company also has a product line named Critical Defense.
