Incendiary 5.56 Rifle Ammo

The Incendiary 5.56 Rifle Ammo is a specialized form of the standard 5.56 ammunition used in various rifles in the survival game Rust. Unlike its standard counterpart, this ammo type stands out by causing fire damage upon impact, in addition to the base bullet damage. This makes it particularly effective for increasing damage potential against both players and environmental targets, as the resulting fire can disrupt and continuously harm opponents.

While the incendiary rounds are potent, they come with a drawback. They experience greater bullet drop compared to regular 5.56 ammunition, necessitating more careful aim, especially at longer distances. It's also worth noting that these rounds can set wooden structures ablaze, making them practical for raiding or creating chaos during encounters.

To maximize the advantages of the Incendiary 5.56 Rifle Ammo, pair it with firearms capable of long-range shooting and use it in situations where the fire damage will be most disruptive to your enemies. Although more expensive to craft than standard rounds, the additional damage and psychological impact on opponents can be a decisive factor in Rust's unforgiving battles for survival and dominance.
