Notes:

  • 1st and 2nd ammo racks are ready racks, and takes priority in being filled at the beginning of battle, then fills 5, 4, then 3.
  • Full reload speed will be realized as long as ammo exists in either ready rack. If both ready racks are empty, a penalty to reload speed will occur.
  • Simply not firing when the gun is loaded will load ammo from racks 3-5 into 2 then 1, as long as there are ammo in racks 3-5. Firing will interrupt loading of the ready racks.
