Version 0.16: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.

Mulch is a term for ammo destruction in Crawl. Every time you fire or throw a unit of ammo, there is a chance that that unit will be mulched. The odds of this happening depends on the particular item used. Only ammo can mulch: other items, even weapons such as hand axes and clubs which are considered throwable, never break.

Note that launcher brands don't affect mulch rates.


Prior to 0.16, steel ammo had a decreased mulch rate. Large rock mulch rate was increased in this version.

In 0.11, enchantment bonus was removed.

Prior to 0.5, enchantment bonus did not increase a unit of ammo's odds of survival.
