In the table, you will find a simple listing of various calibers and their subcategories. Another table, however, shows you damage values, armor penetration, velocity, etc. This table looks like this:

Exemplary ammunition table for Tarkov

You have now seen many small columns, all of which display a supposedly important value. My experience from around 1,000 hours of Tarkov shows, the most important stats are the following:

  1. Damage: Indicates how much damage you inflict on the enemy's body. The higher this value, the lower the penetration power.
  2. Penetration Power: Indicates how much damage you inflict through the enemy's armor. The higher this value, the lower the damage.
  3. Velocity: Indicates the bullet speed, under a speed of 340 m/s, enemies don't hear the bullet crack & can locate the origin direction worse. The higher the bullet speed, the higher the penetration power.
  4. Tracer: This ammunition lights up when fired.

When to use Which Type of Ammo in Tarkov?

Especially at the beginning of a wipe, you should rely more on ammunition with a high damage value. Because at the start of Tarkov, other players still do not have strong armor, which could only be cracked with armor-piercing (AP) ammunition.

On the other hand, if you are in the middle of a cycle or even at the end, your playing style rather decides the choice of your ammunition. Tarkov players usually divide into two categories when it comes to choosing ammunition:

  • Head & Body: If you focus on these body regions, typical of shooters, then you should consider ammunition with high Penetration Power (Durchschlagskraft). Because the body and head are the most protected body parts in Tarkov.
  • Arms & Legs: For these body regions, you should opt for ammunition with a higher damage value. For arms and legs, there is currently no armor in Tarkov.

So, now you know all the basics of ammunition in Escape from Tarkov, up next are the individual ammunition tables for each weapon category:
