When you've enough acid and cloth, and don't know what to do with them.Fallout 76 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide p.105

Gunpowder is a miscellaneous item in Fallout 76.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

An explosive chemical mixture of sulfur, charcoal and potassium nitrate. It is a required component for crafting ballistic ammunition.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Acid (3)
Cloth (5)
Gunpowder (15)

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.

  • 3 * 0.05 (acid) + 5 * 0.05 (cloth) = 0.4 total materials
  • 15 * 0.05 (gunpowder) = 0.75 final gunpowder weight

Locations[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

Before the release of Wastelanders, it could be earned in large quantities throughout Vault Mission: Dead in the Water.
