Suggested BDGs

NOTE: BDGs are the baseline suggested BDG for rounds.

All guns have different BDGs for the same round because of barrel length and other factors. When creating a gun, you should calculate the actual BDG for the gun, not use a standard BDG. In other words, the BDG listed here is an average/suggested value. Guns will have different BDGs.

Rounds indicated as (Rifle) have the BDG calculated for longer barrels. The round is the same, but in a rifle the effective BDG is higher due to the higher muzzle energy of rifles. If players find

1 10mm ammo should be BDG 5, but it has been gamified to BDG 10 to allow a more common perception of deadly pistols. Due to this P+ ammo has been restricted for 10mm rounds.

Note: BDGs are suggested. Players can edit their guns to increase a specific gun's BDG from their details screen. They should justify this with their GM, of course. The site in no way is forcing anyone to use a specific BDG for their favorite weapon and ammo combination. This is a religion, people! Everyone has religious freedom. Set your BDGs as you feel they need to be!

RAW BDGs are listed on the Yellow Card in the Aftermath! package. These are for reference. Feel free to use whatever BDGs you want.
