Handloading is both the name of a non-combat skill and an associated activity.

Handloading (or reloading) is the term given for the process of manufacturing firearm ammunition manually, through the use of specially designed tools. It is possible to handload in the Mazes with the right equipment, and even create combinations of caliber, powder charge, and projectile that are available nowhere else.

Although it can be argued handloading and reloading aren't exactly the same (reloading specifically implies the reuse of certain components), the two terms are interchangeable for the purposes of the game.

All firearm caliber ammunition can be handloaded, with three exceptions:

  • .22 Long Rifle: Cannot be handloaded, but is nominally loaded with a small quantity of Pistol powder. You may disassemble rounds of .22 LR ammunition to harvest Pistol powder - exact quantity and quality depends on the type of .22 LR ammunition disassembled. Doing so, however, will not produce any usable casings, primers, or projectiles.
  • 4.2x30mm R Golden Gun: Cannot be handloaded or disassembled. Such ammunition uses completely custom-designed, proprietary casings, primers, powders and projectiles which cannot be found for sale anywhere. The only way to acquire ammunition in this caliber is to find it in the UA.
  • 4.73x33mm Caseless: Cannot be handloaded or disassembled. Due to the caseless nature of the cartridge, there is no traditional case or powder; they are essentially blocks of solid propellant that is completely disintegrated upon firing, propelling the bullet it contains forwards. This bullet is also completely proprietary, and cannot be used to load ammunition in other calibers.
