MW3 High Velocity - Modern Warfare 3

High Velocity

High Velocity gives your gun a better effective range at the cost of a lower damage range.

Ammunition types allow you to modify the damage strengths of your equipped gun. For example, High Velocity rounds give your gun better effective range at the cost of damage, while Incendiary rounds offer increased vehicle damage at the cost of poor bullet penetration and velocity.

Unlock the Ammunition Slot for Your Gun

Before you can equip new Ammunition types for your gun in MW3, you will first need to unlock its Ammunition Slot. To unlock this attachment slot, you will need to earn Weapon XP for your chosen gun by using it in MW3 multiplayer matches, Zombies, or Warzone.

Equip the Ammunition Type via the Gunsmith

Once you have both the Ammunition Slot and a compatible ammunition type unlocked for your gun, you can customize your weapon and use the new ammunition type via the Gunsmith.
