Ammunition is extremely expensive in Fallout 4 and strangely you can’t craft it, even though you can make everything else in the game. I am certainly not the only one who notices that and I am happy to hear that a great modder decided to fix the problem by releasing the Craftable Ammunition mod for Fallout 4, a mod that allows you to use all the junk you’re gathering in the Commonwealth and craft some ammo for your weapons, so you never run dry. Or at least to improve your chances at having a full clip on you at all times!
The mod is smartly done and integrated within the gameplay: you can craft all types of ammo at the Chemistry station, but the more complex ones require specific perks. Really cool! You can refer to the download link below to see all that’s needed to make ammo in Fallout 4 using the Fallout 4 Craftable Ammunition and the Perks / Stats you need in order to get there.
