A heavy lead projectile without a plastic tip, intended for use in a shotgun and often used for hunting large game.

The 12 Gauge Slug is a type of Weapon Ammunition that used to be in Dayz Standalone. Slug shells fire a single projectile similar to a bullet which retains all kinetic energy when fired. This results in great range and damage. The disadvantage is it decreases your chances of hitting your target and can only hit one target compared to 12 Gauge Buckshot.

For some time the 12 Gauge Slug has been removed from the Loot Tables, and as of 0.48 Stable, it can no longer be loaded into the Izh43 Shotgun.
