The best way to farm ammo in Fallout 76

Ammo will always be a necessity in Fallout 76’s wasteland unless you’re running a melee build. Most people found across the wasteland use heavy weapons that require a lot of ammo. Unfortunately, ammo is pretty hard to come by in bulk and you can only get so much from missions. If you want a lot of ammo, you have to rely on crafting it. Crafting time.

How to craft ammo in Fallout 76

Crafting ammo is pretty easy. All you need is a Tinker’s Workbench and you can craft as much ammo as you want. Of course, you’ll need the necessary materials to craft the ammo, but at least you don’t need to find the blueprints to craft them. Each type of ammo has two common ingredients; lead and steel. These are fairly common materials, but to craft a lot of ammo you’ll need a lot of Steel and Lead.

Where do you find steel

Steel is a fairly common material found in various items. However, if you want to get a lot of steel, consider farming weapons and taking advantage of Steel Extractors. Scorched and Super Mutants both tend to wield weapons, with Super Mutants wielding more powerful weapons than Scorched. Each of these weapons can be scrapped at a workbench and will give you around 20 steel if you have the Scrapper perk.

Grafton Steel is one of the many workshops you can claim in the Wasteland, but it’s one of the few that has steel extractors. Grafton Steel houses two steel extractors and one lead extractor. Claim this Workshop and turn on all Extractors to collect a lot of Lead and Steel (40 per hour to be exact).

Where lead is found

Lead is a little harder to find than steel, but you can get plenty of it if you head south on the map. By far the best place to get lead is Lucky Hole Mine. This location is west of Cranberry Bog in the mountains. Lucky Hole Mine is home to a group of cultists who can drop weapons to get you more steel. Bring a pickaxe and collect the lead ore scattered around the mine.

Other places that contain a lot of lead include Green Country Lodge, Morgantown High School, and the Charleston Fire Department. Each of these areas has a weight room with a ton of weights that you can scrap for extra weight. You’ll also get some Steel if you scrap them.

The best perks for crafting ammo

Since the best way to get ammo is to craft it yourself, you should get the right perks for the job. There are two perks you should get before crafting ammo. Super duper and ammo smith. The Super Duper perk gives you the chance to double everything you craft. This way you will get double the amount of ammo with each crafting. The Munitionssmith perk increases the amount of ammo you can craft at one time. With all of this information, you should be able to farm a ton of ammo. You can also turn on the ammo machine in the ammo factory for extra ammo. The best way to farm ammo in Fallout 76
