Unless you’re using a melee build, crafting ammo is always important in Fallout 76. Most survivors in the wastes are armed with large, high-reloading firearms. Unfortunately, there is a limited amount of ammo you can obtain from completing missions. In order to have a large supply of ammo, you will need to manufacture it. Now is the time to put your artistic skills to use. Here’s our guide to helping players craft Ammo in Fallout 76.
How to Craft Ammo in Fallout 76?
Crafting ammunition is a breeze. Just get yourself a Tinker’s Workbench and you’ll have all the ammunition you could ever need. You’ll need the raw materials, of course, but you won’t have to track down any blueprints to make your own ammunition. Both lead and steel are used in the production of all ammunition. Steel and lead are fairly common, but you’ll need a lot of it to make a lot of ammunition.
Step 1: Find Steel
Steel is a very common item and can be found in a wide variety of products. But if you need a large quantity of steel, farming guns and using Steel Extractors is your best bet. Both Scorched and Super Mutants are likely to be armed, although the Super Mutants’ firearms will be more powerful. These firearms can be scrapped at a workbench for about 20 steel if you have the Scrapper perk.
Among the many workshops available for claim in the wastes, Grafton Steel is notable for being home to Steel Extractors. One Lead Extractor and two Steel Extractors can be found at Grafton Steel. Take over this machine shop and crank up the extractors to scavenge some metal for bullets and swords (40 per hour to be exact).
Step 2: Find Lead
A large quantity of lead can be obtained by traveling to the south of the continent, despite the fact that it is slightly more difficult to find than steel. Lucky Hole Mine is the best place to get lead. This spot is in the mountains to the west of Cranberry Bog. The Cultists in Lucky Hole Mine occasionally drop weapons that can be used to scavenge for more steel. Make sure to bring a pickaxe with you collect lead ore sprinkled throughout the mine
Morgantown High School, The Green Country Lodge, and the Charleston Fire Department also have significant amounts of lead. In each of these locations, you’ll find a weight room stocked with plenty of unwanted weights perfect for turning into scrap metal. In addition to the steel, you can salvage other metals from these scraps.
Best Perks For Crafting Ammo
Since crafting your own ammunition is the best option, it’s important to equip yourself properly. Before you begin making your own ammunition, it is recommended that you obtain the Super Duper and Ammosmith perks. Super Duper gives you a chance to multiply your creations by two.
If you do this, every time you make ammunition, you’ll have twice as much as before. The Ammosmith perk allows you to make more ammunition in a single session. As a result of reading this, you should be able to produce a large quantity of ammunition. The ammo machine at the Munitions Factory can be charged up for some extra ammunition.
Well, that’s all we have here about how you can craft Ammo in Fallout 76. We hope this guide helped you. If you liked this, make sure to check out how you can Farm Fusion Cores in Fallout 76.
