These ammunition types are obtained in full clips and not individually unless otherwise noted.

Scourge Shells

Scourge Shells have many names across the Screaming Vortex - Tox Slugs, V-Rounds, and so on - but all variants retain similar methods of construction and use. Scourge Shells are hollow, allowing their users to fill them with various toxic concoctions.

Shotguns using Scourge Shells lose the Scatter Quality, but increase their Penetration by 2 and gain the Razor Sharp Quality. Additionally, a Heretic may load a clip of Scourge Shells with any Disease or toxin he has on hand as a Full Action by making a Routine (+20) Medicae Test (using the Chem-Use Special Use of the Skill). If he succeeds, any character who suffers Damage from the Scourge Shell also suffers any effects of the Disease or poison planted in it.
