"Large shells for use with the grenade launcher. Releases a high-powered electric charge upon impact."
Electric Rounds is an item in Resident Evil 5.
These are special rounds that can be purchased from the Item Management screen after being found in Chapter 5-3 in a room after exiting the laboratory. These are most effective against Reapers. A single round can also be used to electrify a part of a body of water, a technique that usually proves to be fatal to any Majini standing in it. These Rounds also appear in The Mercenaries, where they are used by Chris in his S.T.A.R.S costume.
