How to Get Ammo in Fallout 76
Fallout 76 is the latest entry in Bethesda’s popular RPG series, but they’re doing things a little differently this time.

Various weapons will require different bullet types, so make sure to know exactly what type of ammo you’re looking for to be the most efficient. The most obvious way to get ammo in Fallout 76 is to simply loot enemies and other players’ dead bodies. This isn’t always the best when you’re looking for a specific type of ammo, but it doesn’t cost anything outside of some bloodshed.
Another way to get bullets in Fallout 76 is to loot anything you can. Drawers, containers, lockers, anything that can be looted, should be looted. Again it’s not the most lucrative way, but can be done easily while you’re out exploring the wasteland.
