In Fallout 76, one of the key aspects of the game is ammunition, which is essential for survival in the wasteland. Players can use a tool known as the Ammo Converter to easily trade their excess ammunition for AmmoPoints, which can then be exchanged for four different types of ammunition: Ballistic, Energy, Explosive, and Other.
This allows for streamlined ammo management and provides players with a convenient means of utilizing their unused ammunition resources. While the Ammo Converter was initially introduced as a part of The Legendary Run update, it is now a permanent aspect of the game that can only be obtained via Gold Bullion. This signifies that it is no longer a seasonal perk. We have provided a detailed guide to assist players in acquiring and making the most of the Ammo Converter.
This article will examine the Ammo Converter and how to use it effectively.
What is the Ammo Converter?
The Ammo Converter is a device in Fallout 76 that allows players to convert their unused ammunition into other types of ammunition. It was introduced in the game with the Wastelanders expansion in 2020. The Ammo Converter can be found in the C.A.M.P. menu under the Resources tab. It requires power to function, so it needs to be connected to a generator or a power grid.

The Ammo Converter has three main functions: Convert Ammo, Buy Ammo, and Sell Ammo. In the Convert Ammo section, players can exchange their unwanted ammunition for other types of ammunition that they need. The Buy Ammo section allows players to purchase ammunition using their earned Ammo Points. The Sell Ammo section allows players to sell their ammunition for Ammo Points.
How to Use the Ammo Converter?
Using the Ammo Converter is relatively easy. Players can access it through the C.A.M.P. menu by selecting the Resources tab. Once inside the Ammo Converter menu, players will see the three options mentioned earlier: Convert Ammo, Buy Ammo, and Sell Ammo.
To convert ammunition, players need to select the Convert Ammo option in the Ammo Converter menu. From there, they can choose the type of ammunition they want to exchange and the type of ammunition they want to receive in return. The Ammo Converter will display the number of Ammo Points required for the transaction.
Players can accumulate Ammo Points by selling unwanted ammunition or purchasing them using caps, the in-game currency. The Ammo Converter will also display the amount of ammunition that can be converted based on the player’s number of Ammo Points.It should be emphasized that there is a finite capacity for simultaneous ammunition conversion. Players can only convert up to 200 rounds of ammunition per transaction. Additionally, the Ammo Converter will only convert certain types of ammunition, so players must check the list of accepted ammunition before attempting to convert.
The Buy Ammo option allows players to purchase ammunition using their earned Ammo Points. Players can select the type of ammunition they want to purchase and the number of rounds they need. The Ammo Converter will display the number of Ammo Points required for the transaction.
Players must ensure they have enough Ammo Points to complete the purchase. They can sell unwanted ammunition to accumulate more points if they do not have enough Ammo Points.
The Sell Ammo option allows players to sell their unused ammunition for Ammo Points. Players can select the type of ammunition they want to sell and the number of rounds they want to sell. The Ammo Converter will display the number of Ammo Points the player will receive for the transaction. It is important to note that the Ammo Converter will only accept certain types of ammunition for sale. Players need to check the list of accepted ammunition before attempting to sell.
Tips for Using the Ammo Converter
Here are some suggestions for using the Ammo Converter more effectively:
Sell Unwanted Ammo
One of the best ways to accumulate Ammo Points is by selling unwanted ammunition. Players can sell ammunition that they do not need or use for a good amount of Ammo Points. This will help them accumulate enough points to purchase the ammunition they actually need.
Convert Ammo Wisely
When converting ammunition, players need to be careful not to waste their Ammo Points. Players should only convert ammunition they are sure they will use in the future. Converting ammunition just for the sake of it can lead to wasted Ammo Points and, ultimately, wasted resources.
Before converting ammunition, players should assess their current inventory and determine which ammunition types they have an excess of and are running low on. This will help them make informed decisions when using the Ammo Converter.
Players should also plan when using the Ammo Converter. They should consider the ammunition types they will need for future quests, events, or encounters and ensure they have enough Ammo Points to purchase or convert them when the time comes.
Keeping a small stockpile of commonly used ammunition types on hand is also a good idea. This can help players avoid running out of ammunition during critical moments in the game.
Check the Exchange Rate
The exchange rate for converting ammunition can vary depending on the types of ammunition being exchanged. Players should check the exchange rate before converting ammunition to ensure they are getting a fair deal.
Players should also remember that the exchange rate can change over time. Check the exchange rate periodically to ensure players get the best deal possible.
