Default ammo runts?

Ok then, ork guns kinda work on faith so if they think there is ammo in the gun it fires, if they think it works it will. so whats the point in ammo runts carrying ammo if they dont need it? cos the ork thinks there is ammo.

Maybe that's why orks don't hit so good.* And then there's this innocent looking grot holding a real shell or magazine and the ork grabs it and throws it into the gun and Blamo! a hit!

*Seems to be the majority view on Orks and their BS but not necessarily the views of this Snakebite. ;D

I think ork gunz do need ammo, they just don't need any visible means of operation that's obvious to lesser races. Ammo runts give you more ammo, so more shots go out, increasing the chance that you hit.

The ammo that the runt gives don't make it more likely that you will hit with that ammo, it just gives you another chance. If you already missed the first shot, you're still going to miss 2/3rd of your extra shots.

I agree with Redbeard as I recon that the orks may use their psychic powers to fire off the bullets but they cannot actually manifest them out of thin air.
