Stormworks: Build and Rescue Shell Type Guide

A short guide to all types of shells with illustrative examples.

Introduction

There are 5 types of shells in the game – kinetic, armor-piercing, fragmentation, high-explosive and incendiary.

The battle cannon can use all of them, the artillery cannon can only use fragmentation, high-explosive and armor-piercing.

In addition, autocannon shells and machine gun cartridges are divided into the same types, and work according to the same principle.

Kinetic shell [K]

Penetration

Medium

Damage

Medium

Additional damaging factors

No

This projectile is the simplest piece of metal in a case. Deals damage only due to its kinetic energy. It has no additional damaging factors.

High explosive shell [HE]

Penetration

No (splash only)

Damage

Very high

Additional damaging factors

No

This projectile is a hollow container filled with explosives. Immediately after contact with the target, it explodes, causing huge splash damage in a certain radius.

(There is a sphere around the shell in which the blocks get damaged, so in the screenshot you can see a circle on the ceiling.)

Armor – piercing shell [AP]

Penetration

Very high

Damage

Medium

Additional damaging factors

No

This is a sub-caliber projectile designed to penetrate a large amount of armor. The damage is exactly the same as a kinetic projectile.

Fragmentation shell [FRAG]

Penetration

No

Damage

low

Additional damaging factors

Fragments

This shell is very similar to a high-explosive, but contains much less explosives. After hitting the target, it weakly explodes, scattering fragments in all directions. Presumably, the best way to use it is fighting infantry.

Incendiary shell [I]

Penetration

No

Damage

low

Additional damaging factors

Fire

This projectile contains an incendiary element, which with some probability (not always, but in most cases) sets fire to the target. It bursts immediately after impact and deals minor damage by impact.
