To make Cartridges (or bullets) in New World, you need to head to any major town’s Workshop — the Workshop must be Tier 2 to offer it. If you open up your map (by pressing the ‘M’ Key), you can easily spot the workshop icon. Cartridges require the following elements to craft:
4 Ingots (This depends on what type of Cartridges you are after) – made from smelting ore at a Smelter.
1 Linen – must be crafted at a Loom with Fiber. Fiber is obtained from hemp plants, which are found in forests and grasslands.
1 Gunpowder – must be crafted. Scroll down for a detailed explanation.
How to Craft Gunpowder
Gunpowder is the most challenging ingredient to find out of the three, and it must be crafted from materials as well. These include:
5 Charcoal – can be made from putting wood in the smelter.
2 Flint – is practically everywhere on the coastlines and in shallow water.
If you don’t feel like crafting, you can also buy cartridges at the Trading Post and Faction Shops. Make sure you are always on the lookout early for some of the collectable resources, such as Saltpeter, Flint and Hemp, as they always come in handy.
