Explosive 5.56 Rifle Ammo Is a nice tool for raiding sheet metal doors, requiring only 60x Explosive 5.56 Rifle Ammo for a single door, you can combo it with an Semi-Automatic Rifle Silencer for a " stealthy " raid. Obs: It's cheaper to raid with bullets than raiding with satchel

With the new nerf, explosive ammo can be heard roughly from 1 and 1/2 squares away, and Semi-Automatic Rifle now break within 134 shots, including the Silencer since they have the same durability.

Its cheaper to raid with explosive ammo if you use it on Sheet metal doors and Garage door, you can also splash it between two adjacent doors essentially halving the cost by knocking two doors for the price of one. It has the splash properties of similar (yet smaller) to rockets. It takes much longer to raid with it however so it's recommended you use it closer to the end of a raid when raiding loot rooms, preferably after you sealed the breach.

You can hit 2 doors in the same time aiming the corner if the doors are close to each other like in a triangle foundation, or 2 garage doors/double doors next to each other.

As a last ditch resort, while fending off players behind cover, you can splash them by hitting the ground/wall next to them to kill them around walls. The damage will ignore most armors.

The durability damage to the gun while firing this ammo is insane. Make sure to bring lots of extra guns or a repair table with mats in your raid base if you plan to use a lot of this ammo in a raid.

The small damage/price interval allows you to be more precise with how much damage you need to do. Raiding with c4/rockets supplemented by explo ammo is both eco and time efficient
