Regardless of your play-style, whether you’re playing the bad guy or the good citizen, you’ll always need to stand up for yourself and survive in the dystopian world of Cyberpunk 2077. You can facilitate that with the help of the right gear, and by gear, I mean guns, lots of guns. But, you need something to fire out of those guns, right? And unfortunately, ammo is always in short supply because you’ll need to use too much. To cater to that problem, in this guide we’ll walk you through how to get more ammo in Cyberpunk 2077.
Cyberpunk 2077: How to Get More Ammo
There are plenty of ways to get more ammo in Cyberpunk 2077, some of which are explained below:
Looting and Scavenging Ammo
When you kill enemies, they usually drop their weapons and clothes which you can then collect. It’s not the most reliable method but it’s free ammo, so whenever you kill an enemy, try to collect the dropped ammo. Other than that you can scavenge for ammo crates which are usually found in areas with a high probability of enemies and gangsters. These crates are represented by white common symbols and you can find these crates by scanning the area.
If you’re short on ammo for a specific weapon which is rare in occurrence and you can’t find its ammo via scavenging or looting, you can always craft it yourself. Ammo can be crafted at any time by going into the character menu and then into the Crafting tab. There you can make different types of ammo including Pistol, Rifle, LMG and Sniper ammo etc from scratch. You can also invest in crafting skill perks which will result in more ammo from less basic components. That’s basically improving your crafting skills to minimize waste and maximize yield.
If you don’t have time for crafting or scavenging and got a lot of cash to splash, you can always head to any weapons store indicated by a gun icon and buy it there. It’ll cost you a lot though, due to which this method is not sustainable; you’ll eventually run out of cash at some point but your enemies in Night City will always be there. So, hold your horses there Samurai!
And that’s all there is to know about getting more ammo in Cyberpunk 2077.
