4.6x30mm is a type of ammunition for firearms. In real life, this cartridge is considered to be part of the Personal Defense Weapon category, a nebulous category of small, high-velocity cartridges intended for compact firearms. Their primary purpose is to defeat armor; therefore, this caliber is classified in the game as a (R)ifle caliber, in order for it to have access to rifle-only projectile types and perform the way a PDW cartridge is intended.
In real life, this cartridge was originally designed for the Heckler & Koch MP7 personal defense weapon (its successor, the Heckler & Koch MP7A1, is featured in the game), as a direct response to FN Herstal's P90 and its cartridge, the 5.7x28mm.
4.6x30mm is pronounced four point six by thirty millimeters.
This caliber may also be referred to as 4.6x30mm HK, after Heckler & Koch.
There are 2 base weapons chambered in this caliber.
