9MM vs .45 ACP

Recommended Posts

Which round is better in game, my buddy says .45, but I wanted to consult the community, because I am deciding between a Vidyaz or a USG as a sidearm besides my regular rifle.

I never used a "USG" (UMP) since the damage (or zombie health, whatever was actually done) tweaks, but 9MM from the Vityaz seems "unreliable", sometimes you can shoot an infected with two, more often you have to fire 3-4 rounds into them unless yo hit the head.

 

My pistol which uses .45 seems more reliable with an average amount of 2 bullets being required to down an infected unless you hit the head, so this gives me the indication that .45 might be better. It's been ages since I went to a military spawn regularly, but back in the day (I think already when the infected got tougher or ammo weaker) you always used to find enough .45 but also 9MM ammo.

 

I seriously question, simply from a practical standpoint, if I should bother with certain 9MM weapons if I can have a better alternative and do not have to carry more ammo to compensate for the fact I need to waste more bullets on infected with certain guns.

 

------------------------------

 

To perhaps add, this is mostly from a "meta perspective". I'm not suggesting we all skip to the guns with the bigger bang for RP purposes and to encourage use of other civilian grade firearms. But if you have to decide between a pea shooter and sufficient gun in one category of weapons(SMGs I guess, in this case), it would be understandable if most people skip to the more efficient weapon if able to.

.45 hits harder right now.

Although if you're looking for an smg as a sidearm, and you can get your hands on one of those, I'd suggest going for an MP7: that thing takes 40 round mags and has a rate of fire that will melt anyone in the blink of an eye.

I believe the MP5/Vityaz fires faster than the UMP but the 45 ACP ammo type does more damage per shot, at least from my experience

Its a horse a piece with whatever you use. I see alot of people rocking the MP5 as its lighter and more space efficent. Otherwise the UMP has the best damage per shot, and the ammo is plentiful.
