    How does AC mod, DR mod and Dmg Mod exactly work?
    Guess AC is Armor Class and DR Demage Resitance and know how they work on armour but how do they work on ammo?
    And what about Dmg Mod?

    For example the 14 mm ammo :
    AC mod: 0
    DR mod: -50
    Dmg Mod: 1/2

    So does it mean that the damage that is absorbed by the armor(lets say 10 points) is only 50%(5 points) of the normal value?
    What about Dmg Mod does 1/2 mean that I make only 6-11 points of damage with my 14mm pistole(has 12-22)?

    I got 12 ga shotgunshells with AC -10 does this lower armor class by 10?

    Strange Armo is nicely describe in the manual but ammo?

    I don't think anyone knows exactly but you can read this and the Armor & Ammo FAQ.

    This is an amazing concept, but if you enter the words "Armor & Ammo FAQ" into Google, the document comes up as the #1 hit!
