If you use ranged weapons in Cyberpunk 2077, the ammunition will be your main resource used during the game. So you need to know how to get your ammunition - especially since there are many methods to do so. On this guide page, you will learn all the ways to restore ammunition.
Finding ammo in the game world
The basic method is exploring visited places. In most locations, you have a chance to restock your ammunition - especially by finding ammunition chests. These are simply chest filled with a given type of ammunition (e.g. for sniper rifles or guns). All you have to do is approach such a box and search it like any other container or corpse.
It is also worth to examine the bodies of defeated enemies. Sometimes you will find ammunition on them - its type depends on the weapon used by the killed opponent.
And if you run out of ammunition, you can always use blades. All kinds of katanas, knives, or bats are a great alternative to distance weapons. Remember to doge and keep moving to reduce the chance of getting hit.
Buying ammo from traders
Ammunition can also be found at arms dealers - they were marked on the map with the icon of a gun. All you have to do is go to one of these places. There, with the help of credits, you can buy the desired type of ammunition.
You can craft your own ammunition without major problems. All you need to do is to have the right amount of crafting materials (components) - you will get these while exploring the world, and by dissembling the items. In the Crafting window, choose the ammunition you are interested in - you will find out what components you need.
