Reloads munitions for a teammate when reinforcements arrive. One per level-up. Doubles the frequency of use of grenades.
New wave (level-based) and passive (always).

Munitions is an unlockable helmet (i.e. Specialization or class) for Troopers to acquire. Its distinct active Ability is resupplying ammunition to all friendly troopers deployed once a wave is over. For each level-up, a munitionman is able to perform one additional resupply, allowing his squad mates to keep fighting. Thus, at level 6, up to 5 resupplies can be made. For this reason, 3-4 munitionmen are an invaluable addition to any serious rat fighting army. Upon use, a cartridge counter appears above every resupplied unit, showing how many have been acquired in total.
This class also boosts the frequency of Grenade use. Anecdotal evidence shows that it works globally, i.e. not just the munitionman himself, but all of your troops can throw all sorts of grenades twice as often even if the skill owner is not deployed in person.
Here's how resupplying works: The weapon bar on the trooper's in-battle sheet has two bars. The top one shows how many rounds can be loaded into a gun at a time ("Capacity" is the name), and how many are actually loaded at the moment. The bottom one shows the total amount of rounds the trooper gets equipped with, more often than not a random number no bigger than capacity will be subtracted from the total amount and loaded to start with. The rest of the ammo in the bar is considered spare just to be loaded later when the gun's empty, and so the total amount equals spare ammunition plus loaded rounds. That's pretty much the maximum. The resupplying, however, adds a certain number to the spare ammo, leaving loaded ones intact. That way, the trooper can have more spare ammunition stocked than initially possible.
- Vehicles can't get resupplied from a munitionman.
- When an enemy Survivor gets up, he is resupplied. Same with troopers who have Crybaby.
- Allied bibi le clown is resupplied by the end of the wave, although it has no weapons, just as rats.
This happens due to the ability working on any entities present on the battlefield, it can't tell troopers, rats, and bibis apart, as they shouldn't be alive by the time the new wave is deployed in the first place, hence the glitch.
