|“|| This 9x19 caliber jacketed hollow point bullet with an expanding hollow provides high stopping power and low ricochet propensity. Used by police and for self-defense. Ineffective against body armor due to its low penetration potential.|
- Call of Pripyat in-game description
General characteristics EditThe 9x19mm PB1s is a special, "hot-load" version of 9x19mm rounds with a hardened steel core.
In-game, PB1s rounds are highly lethal against unarmored and lightly-armored enemies like most mutants, and rookie stalkers. However, they are very unreliable against stalkers wearing medium and heavy armor and against powerful mutants, like the Pseudogiant and the Chimera.
- The Cyrillic script on the box reads PBP, which stands for Povishennaya Broneboin'ie Pulya ("Enhanced Armor-piercing Bullet").
- The English script on the box reads JSP-AP, which stands for "Jacketed Soft-Point, Armor-Piercing".
- The +P+ designation indicates it is overpressure ammunition i.e. ammunition that has been loaded to a higher internal pressure than the standard of its caliber, but lower than a proof round and far below that of magnum ammo. While there is no official +P+ standard of ammo, it is commonly used by manufacturers to indicate greater pressure than +P ammo. +P ammo needs to be fired from a weapon with components capable of handling powerful loads.
Shadow of ChernobylEdit
Can be found in some stashes, both those with markings and the "secret" ones. Most notably, two wooden boxes on top of watchtower next to vehicle junkyard in Garbage are packed full of them - more than 1000 total.
9x19mm PBP rounds are almost virtually non-existent since none of NPCs nor any of traders have them in their inventory. The only way to obtain them is through finding it in stashes.
Call of PripyatEdit
Some JHP rounds can be found in the basement of the Waste Processing Station.
