How to Get Ammo in Far Cry 6
Ammo is a valuable resource in Far Cry 6. You will need to keep a track of the ammo you have available in each of the guns you carry. By gun type, you have Rifle, Pistol, Sniper, Rocket, Grenade, Shotgun, SMG, and LMG Ammo. Each gun takes different Ammo and cannot interchange them between weapons. You can get Ammo from defeated enemies. After killing them you will have to go to their bodies and loot them. Having Boom Boom around you will speed up the process. Another way of getting Ammo is at the back of your Vehicle, the Trunk. Go to the back and just Refill on Ammo. After refilling, there will be a 30 min Cooldown till you can refill again from your Vehicle.
