The 2Rnd. Pellets in DayZ
|Converts to:||8Rnd. Pellets|
|Used in:||Double-barreled Shotgun|
2Rnd. Pellets are two rounds of 12 gauge pellets, used in the Double-barreled Shotgun. They contain eight pellets per round, each dealing 2000 Blood damage.
Pellets are very inaccurate beyond short range due to the shotgun's spread. The player cannot merge depleted piles, and they cannot use the two round magazine in the M1014 or Remington 870 (Flashlight). However, four stacks can be merged into a single 8Rnd. Pellets. Conversely, 8Rnd. Pellets can be converted into four 2Rnd Pellets. Pellets by right clicking them and choosing the split option.
If given the choice between 2Rnd. Slugs or pellets, slugs are always the better choice. Pellets are ineffective past 40m, putting the player at a significant disadvantage in many engagements. However, at closer ranges, like the insides of buildings, pellets can be used to get multiple kills or headshots with a single round.
