It deals increased damage compared to normal ammo.

Steel is an throwing weapon brand that can found on tomahawks and javelins. Ammo with this brand deals 30% more damage.

Although it lacks any special abilities, steel ammo is a good choice for general use. However, it is less effective than silver when attacking vulnerable enemies. It is a rare find outside of god gifts and certain high-level monsters.

Note that while steel is a material in real life, in Crawl, it and silver are implemented as brands, so you can't have a poisoned steel javelin or a silver exploding tomahawk.
