Obsolete: This article refers to an aspect of the game which has been removed. It is retained for historical reference only.

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.
