|Equipment Type||Deployable Ammunition Bags|
- "The ammo bag is a portable bag, originally intended to allow soldiers to carry extra ammunition."
- —In-game description.
The ammo bag is a deployable piece of equipment that the player can use to replenish their ammunition reserves by interacting with it. Like in PAYDAY: The Heist, its rate of depletion is linearly proportional to the percentage of the weapons' ammo pools being restored.
Unlike the ammo bags of PAYDAY: The Heist which are deployed instantly, the bags in PAYDAY 2 takes a while to fully set up, leaving the player vulnerable for the entire duration of the placement.
The player can carry 1 extra ammo bag by unlocking the Ammunition Specialist skill, and then gain 2 additional uses (+200%) of each bag by acing the skill.
The basic ammo bag contains 3 uses (300%) for one weapon. Calculation is made in percentages, so no matter what weapon a player wields, the total ammo pool for that particular weapon is considered 100%, be it a fully loaded shotgun with 30 slugs or a fully loaded assault rifle with 150 cartridges. Having one member with fully upgraded Ammo bags grants the whole crew a 1000% (2 bags) total ammo refill. Console players should note that there is no tier bonus for Ammo bags as there is for Doctor bags in the Mastermind tree.
This eases ammunition management on a team basis, as players will not use a full charge in order to replenish their ammunition, instead reducing the bag's remaining amount (a percentage) by the exact percentage taken. However, note that weapons with a small total ammo pool will take away the same percentage from the ammo bag as a large total ammo pool each time its ammunition is replenished. Players should take this into account when selecting their weapons, especially if their crew is going into a long heist without bringing multiple ammo bags.
Ammo bags will visually diminish as they are used. This can help give players the calculation of remaining ammunition.
- Note: The ammo bag will prioritize secondary weapons. If there is not enough ammo to fill both of your weapons, the bag will first refill your secondary and then your primary.
