Description[edit | edit source]

Gun Powder is a craftable item which is used to craft ammo, i.e. Shotgun Shells and bullets, and is used to craft Explosives, i.e TNT and Land mines.

In order to receive skill progress credit for gun smithing, the Chemistry Station interface must remain open during crafting.
