Jagged Alliance 3: How to Craft Ammo

You're dead if you run out of ammo in Jagged Alliance 3.

In Jagged Alliance 3, players need to manage their ammunition and can eventually run out. While you can find ammo in the different zones of the game, it may not be enough to sustain your entire party. Luckily, there’s a way to craft ammo in the game, as long as you know which options to select. 

How to Craft Ammo in Jagged Alliance 3

Ammo Types Jagged Alliance 3

A wrench icon on the SAT View map will designate Repair Shop zones. 

There are different ammo calibers with different effects, like Armor piercing, which is more effective on armored targets. More powerful ammo will cost more materials to create. 

If you’re looking for the cheapest option, look for the Standard option of the caliber you are trying to create. Just as with healing, players should take their time as they claim new zones on the map and spend time resting and creating ammo when they can.
