Special Issue Ammunition
Tactical flexibility is paramount given the unknown situations Deathwatch squads are often thrust into. Battle-brothers in the organisation make extensive use of variant bolt rounds that have numerous advantages over even the considerable power of standard bolt shells.
The cost to Requisition special ammunition listed in Special Issue Ammunition (Bolt) Table represents one clip for any applicable weapon, except Pistols which halve the listed Requisition cost due to their smaller magazine. Special issue ammunition for Heavy Bolters adds +5 to the Requisition for a regular clip or +15 if an Astartes Backpack Ammo supply is used.
