If we're removing real-life information why does "Ammunition" remain in the weapon infobox? Darthkenobi0(talk) 04:55, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

It shouldn't. Shotrocket6 05:32, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

Guns of the same ammunition type may do different damage, so ammunition type should be removed. LITE992 13:58, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

It's a carry-over from when we were cataloguing every noticeable element of every weapon. It should be removed, as it is not relevant or even mentioned in-game. --Scottie theNerd 05:01, July 24, 2010 (UTC)

Even though we don't take RL info, We should keep ammunition so a user doesn't start a blog and say my M4A1 Carbine uses a 7.62x41 round. Then a wave of people will say "ITS 5.56x45!!!". It basically to keep user aware and don't start flame wars. Coolcoolman pic SC2nd Lt. BravoAlphaSix 20:26, July 24, 2010 (UTC)

Really, a user making a blog about a 7.62mm calibre M4A1 is the least of our worries. It's not as if the ammunition type in the infobox really stopped anyone from being wrong. --Scottie theNerd 03:56, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

There is no more ammo type info anymore. It was deleted as part of the IRL project on 25 Jul 2010. Personal WHISKEY35 signature Talk 04:11, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

In-game, isn't the ammo written on the sides of some of the weapons? US Army OF-2 Rambo362 US Army OF-2 12:50, July 27, 2010 (UTC)

For some weapons, yes. However, it has no impact on the game itself. --Scottie theNerd 13:34, July 27, 2010 (UTC)
That may be the case, but if its stated or found somewhere in-game, shouldn't it be included in its article? US Army OF-2 Rambo362 US Army OF-2 13:45, July 27, 2010 (UTC)
Decals usually go in Trivia or Notes. --Scottie theNerd 06:53, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
That's true. US Army OF-2 Rambo362 US Army OF-2 13:51, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
