Machine gun ammunition is the ammo used for the different types of Machine guns in the Resident Evil series. Some RE games depict ammo in magazines, other games show them as boxes.

Gameplay SpecificsEdit

PSX era Resident Evil titles like RE2 have huge machine gun magazine capacities which are shown in percentage values: 100% for a full clip which contains a couple hundred rounds. Very few spare magazines can be found in these games.

It is first seen in Resident Evil Zero as an unlockable item. It is obtained by completing the Leech Hunter minigame after collecting 1-29 leeches.

In Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6, it is frequently dropped by enemies or found in crates.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City however, does not feature its own machine gun ammo but instead uses ammo stashes found throughout the game to replenish ammo.

In Resident Evil Revelations, instead of being dropped off by enemies, the player needs to find it throughout each location. The game limits the amount for carrying Machine Gun Ammo. However, the limit can be extended by finding an Ammo Bag specifically for the Machine Gun Ammo. This also applies in Raid Mode but the Machine Gun Ammo Bags can only be bought in the store.

In the Resident Evil Outbreak series, the Submachine gun uses the same 9mm ammunition of handguns, instead of custom SMG ammo.
