An Ammunition Pouch is a small fabric pouch that is used to store additional ammunition and magazines. Ammo Pouches carried with load bearing equipment that is worn by military personnel. Storing ammunition in these pouches allows for easier access when reloading weapons in order to re-engage enemy forces faster.

Battlefield 4[]

"Picking it up will replenish some ammo for the soldiers main weapon and sidearm."

— Customization menu description (alpha gameplay)

The Ammo Pack is an alternative resupply item for the Support kit in Battlefield 4. It immediately provides two primary and/or secondary weapon magazines for the player that picks it up. It can supply up to three explosives or replacement gadgets, one at a time, like the regular Ammo Box but only while stopping on it.

Like the First Aid Pack, it can be thrown much further than the Ammo Box by targeting an ally. The pack will home on the player, making it unnecessary to compensate for their movement. If thrown at a player that already has their full complement of reserve ammunition, the pack will remain on the ground.


Battlefield 1[]

The Ammo Pouch is a gadget featured in Battlefield 1 for the Support and Cavalry kits and to riders as a deployable item from horseback. Functioning in a similar manner to its Battlefield 4 counterpart, it allows players to resupply ammunition for teammates.

Like the Bandage Pouch, users on foot can throw pouches at needy teammates with either the Gadget 1/2 button or the Spot button.

Although it provides ammunition more quickly than the Ammo Crate, it provides only four sets of ammunition, only supplies a single player, and is expended once collected. However, if picked up while at full ammo, it will recharge grenades and gadgets like an Ammo Crate.


Battlefield V[]

"Small ammo pouch that can be used to resupply allies."

— In-game description

The Ammo Pouch is a gadget featured in Battlefield V, first seen being used in the Battlefield 5 Official Reveal Trailer, issued to the Support class. Unlike past installments, players carry less ammunition, and must resupply frequently due to Attrition system. Similar to Bandages, the Support has an unlimited amount of Ammo Pouches with a short cooldown between each use.

Pouches can only be thrown when an ammunition icon is displayed over a teammate—they cannot be thrown freely. Once this icon is present, the player may press Gadget 1 or Spot in order to throw a pouch. The Support kit can also resupply their own weapon by holding Gadget 1, or pressing it when no teammates in need are nearby.

Ammo Pouches only resupply primary and secondary weapon ammo. Unlike Ammo Crates that also resupply one of each gadget carried. Supply Stations replenish the player's full kit, including grenades.

Players drop an Ammo Pouch when they are critically wounded, allowing anyone nearby to recover a small amount (less than a pouch given willingly). Assault using the Light Infantry Combat Role have the "Scavenger" trait that allows them to recover more ammunition from dropped pouches. Recon players equipped with Throwing Knives can replenish knives from any dropped pouches.


Battlefield 2042[]

"Resupplies self and teammates with a moderate amount of ammunition. Can be thrown approximately 30 meters."

— In-game description

Ammo Pouches appeared in Battlefield 2042 either as drops from wounded players, Angel's specialty or as a gadget.

Dropped pouches will provide a player with half a magazine's worth of ammunition for the currently held primary or secondary weapon, for the currently equipped ammunition type. Pouches will not be picked up if the player is carrying their maximum reserve for that weapon and ammo type, requiring some ammo management if a reserve type needs to be replenished.

Angel's ammo pouches will fully restock a player's primary and secondary ammunition.

The Ammo Pouch introduced in Dark Creations season is available to Support kit. Players can unlock the gadget by reaching tier 37 in the Battle Pass. Player will carry 3 pouches at maximum and will replenish over time.



  • Prior to the Battlefield 1: They Shall Not Pass DLC, the Ammo Pouch would instantly restock explosives, but with a preparation delay before they can be used by the player.
