One of the resources you need to progress in New World is Saltpeter. The problem is that this resource is really hard to find especially if you don’t know where to look. In this guide, we will discuss everything you need to know on how to find Saltpeter in New World.
New World: How to Get and Collect Saltpeter
Saltpeter is one of the most “short in supply” resources in the game. The fact that other players are also looking for it makes it even harder to get enough for yourself. It can take a while before you are able to get your hands on enough Saltpeter.
To find Saltpeter you need to find its nodes and for that, you need a mining pick. The good news is that you don’t need a high-level mining pick to mine Saltpeter. If you don’t have a mining pick you can easily craft a Flint Mining Pick at any campfire. You’ll need 1x Flint and 1x Green-Wood.
Trading Stall )P2P Market) is another way to get your hands on some Saltpeter but since it is a rare resource that is required to craft ammo, not many players actually sell it. Still, it is an option for you but the prices will be high.
The best option remains Saltpeter Nodes and they are usually found in caves. Check caves, animal dens, and mines to find as many Saltpeter nodes as you can.
