High Velocity Ammunition, or HVA, is an ammo type available to a variety of weapons. It is unlocked through purchase with Certification Points or Daybreak Cash.

While loaded, high velocity ammunition decreases the range at which the weapon deals its maximum damage by 2 meters, in exchange for increasing the distance until the weapon reaches its minimum damage, as well as increasing the weapon's muzzle velocity by 10%.

Although the weapon's maximum damage range is reduced, the greatly increased minimum damage range pushes the weapons's 'bullets-to-kill' breakpoints out to notably longer ranges.

 Daybreak Cash As with all other attachments, if any instance of this attachment is purchased with Daybreak Cash it will still only be available for the specific weapon it was unlocked for, however it will be available on other characters who can use that same weapon.

Availablity[]

This attachment's effects are consistent across every single gun that can load it, although each weapon's unique base stats will likely modify the exact outcome. To see the attachment's effects on the weapon's bullets-to-kill thresholds, please refer to the Damage Fall-off section on the weapon's appropriate article, where the ranges relevant to this attachment are listed in purple.
