If there are any options to cause more damage in Modern Warfare and Warzone, you’re going to want to take them. Things like Stopping Power rounds are great, but they’re pretty rare. FMJ is another possible option, but the facts around it are quite vague. So that you know what you’re getting from it, here’s everything you need to know about whether FMJ increases damage in Modern Warfare and Warzone.
FMJ is a weapon perk in Modern Warfare. Rather than being one of the three loadout perks that you can choose, it takes the place of one of a weapon’s perks, which you’ll see in the bottom right of the screen when customizing a loadout.
Does FMJ Increase Damage in Modern Warfare & Warzone?
The answer is part yes and part no. What FMJ, or Full Metal Jacket as it stands for, does is increase the penetration of bullets you fire. However, that doesn’t mean those fired at enemies do more damage.
With it equipped, you can cause more damage per bullet than usual when firing through walls and barriers and at killstreaks in the air. Those are the only times where damage will be increased, you’ll have to do other things to increase your standard damage.
In Warzone, you can find Stopping Power Rounds in cases from some loot chests and some other attachments increase the damage of a weapon a little bit, which you can see from the white bars in the weapon’s stats.
That doesn’t mean FMJ isn’t helpful. When fighting enemies that are in cover, using the perk means you can still hurt them while they’re behind some kinds of cover.
That’s everything you need to know about whether FMJ increases damage in Modern Warfare and Warzone. For more tips and tricks on the game, be sure to check out our wiki guide for the base game and battle royale mode, or search for Twinfinite.
No, you need to find Stopping Power Rounds to do more damage against enemies.
It increases the damage you do to killstreaks, such as helicopters, and allows you to hurt enemies more when firing through walls.
Head to a loadout, customize a weapon, and you’ll find it in the weapon perk section in the bottom right of the screen.
