— In-game description

The .45 ACP is a moon clip with a capacity of six .45 ACP (11.43×23mm) cartridges and is used in the Revolver sidearm, and with a conversion, the M1911 sidearm in DayZ.

The .45 ACP cartridges cause medium-low damage (1389 Blood), have moderate recoil and when fired, an audible range of up to 52.8 meters from the shooter's position. The effective range of these cartridges is up to 100 meters.

The cartridges require up to three body shots to kill a player, and as with all weapons in DayZ, only one head shot to kill.

The .45 ACP is a commonly found loot item that has a 4.55% chance of spawning in Residential, Industrial, Farm and Military loot spawns.


  • Judging by the pits at the tips of the cartridges in the image, these cartridges are hollow-point, which allows for decreased penetration and to disrupt more tissue as it passes through the target.
  • The letters ACP stand for Automatic Colt Pistol. It denotes various John Browning cartridge designs used in Colt and Fabrique Nationale de Herstal pistols.
