An explosive chemical mixture of sulfur, charcoal and potassium nitrate. It is a required component of several ammunition types that can be crafted at a tinker's workbench. It cannot be obtained from scrapping but it is also not dropped upon the player character death.
Making gunpowder results in a net weight increase of almost double. This worsens with the Pack Rat perk because gunpowder is not affected by it. This makes it better to use up the gunpowder the player character has and only make more when they're making ammo immediately.
- 3 * 0.05 (acid) + 5 * 0.05 (cloth) = 0.4 total materials
- 15 * 0.05 (gunpowder) = 0.75 final gunpowder weight
