The 9x19mm PB1s, also known as 9x19mm JHP in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat, is an ammunition type featured in all S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games.

General characteristics[]

The 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 9x19mm PB1s is compatible with all 9x19 weapons. It can be used with the Walker P9m, Martha, HPSS-1m, and the Viper 5.


Shadow of Chernobyl[]

An improved round for the Walker P9m and the Viper 5 submachine gun. A high-powered round with a hollow-point bullet and an armor-piercing core.

Clear Sky[]

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 Pripyat[]

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

Owl will sell these rounds early in the game, and they can also be bought from Hawaiian.

Some JHP rounds can be found in the basement of the Waste Processing Station.
