A U-238 round

Uranium-238 is the most common isotope of uranium found in nature. Depleted U-238 was used by terrans to create ammunition. The C-14 rifle fired U-238 the spikes/shells that increased range[2] by up to 25%.[3][4] The P-45 pistol could also fire U-238 rounds for greater range and penetration.[5]

U-238 rounds are referred to by the slang term "hot shots".[6]

U-238 Rounds

Reapers gain +1 range and deal an extra +3 damage vs light units.

U-238 Rounds are made from depleted uranium. These rounds are extremely dense (1.67 times the density of lead), so they have increased range and hit lightly armored units much harder.[5]
