Acid Rounds are a common ammunition type used for Grenade Launcher weapons. Filled with a sulphuric acid, they generally have a yellow nose. Often, one of the more powerful grenades available to the player. Zombies will often melt altogether when shot with acid grenades, and Hunters are especially vulnerable to the rounds. In Resident Evil 5, they do not kill an enemy instantly, but generally stuns them and causes them to collapse. These are best used when surrounded. They are also effective against Lickers; One directly-hit round makes them vulnerable to an instant-kill heart stab. This will unlock the "Heart Stopper" achievement/trophy.
