RDR2 Split Point Ammo: What Is It and How To Get It?

RDR2 Split Point

When a heist goes tragically wrong, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde motley crew are forced to escape the western settlement of Blackwater. To survive, the gang must loot, steal, and fight their way all over the brutal heart of America, with federal officials and bounty hunters hot on their tail. As internal problems threaten to rip the organization apart, Arthur must choose between his own convictions and devotion to the gang that raised him.

RDR2 Split Point is a type of ammo that reduces the effects of drain from a dead eye, while small arrows and bullet cartridges don’t damage the pelts.

The only true drawbacks of SP ammo are that you can only carry a maximum of 100 to 150 rounds of it at a time, which is less than ordinary ammo (200 to 300 rounds), and you have to wait for the crafting animation to finish depending on how much you want to produce.

For some convoluted reason Rockstar has yet to give a true answer to, you cannot currently craft any type of ammo at your main Online campsite.

RDR2 Split Point ammo can be crafted, but they take a very long period of time to craft, and hence, many people tend not to use them, or if they do, they have to wait for a long period of time for the ammo to be made.

Is RDR2 Split Point Worth It?

RDR2 Split Point ammo is completely worth it if you ask me, it is cheap, it can expand your ammo capacity, is stronger than regular ammunition, and it will give you an extra 5XP on each kill you make.

It is also extremely accurate and reduces the drain-on ‘dead eye’ effect.

You can always buy High Velocity or Express ammo, but they are really expensive and will waste a lot of money needlessly.

RDR2 Best Ammo

Express Ammo

In the entire game of RDR2 Express Ammo is the best ammunition as it greatly increases the damage caused by it. It makes the weapon more greater during Raffle off shots and close range or even Long range damage will hit hard.

Velocity Ammo

For rifles, pistols, and revolvers, high-velocity ammunition is available for purchase or looting from adversaries. The ammunition is special since it can pierce several adversaries at once. The player gets the opportunity to kill or injure numerous assailants at once when sufficient people are lined up.

It can even pierce many animals if the player is fortunate. Even though the quality might suffer, it can increase the supply of animal skins. It is also helpful when battling adversaries in a congested space.

Can You Convert Regular Ammo Into Split Points?

Every game has to have its own ways of reducing the strength of overpowered weapons. As Split Points, you cannot change all your regular Ammo into a split points as there is a limited capacity.

Replenishing the stock is also really difficult as finding them on enemies, and in-game is really difficult, and crafting them is also difficult as you cannot do so in bulk.
