Fallout 76 Ammo Converter improvements are in the works for the game's next major patch. Now that players have had some time to work with this relatively new rank-up reward, the devs have discovered that it isn't quite meeting the mark.

If you're not quite familiar with the Ammo Converter, it's a very straightforward device. Simply put, you can insert one type of ammo and get another one in exchange. This device is supposed to let players ultimately get more of their preferred ammo, but it hasn't been doing the best job so far.


As one Reddit submission notes, using the Ammo Converter takes a silly amount of time, especially when you want to convert large stacks of ammo. Thankfully, the devs have taken notice of the complaints and already have some improvements in the works.

What are the Planned Fallout 76 Ammo Converter Improvements?

Here are the planned Fallout 76 Ammo Converter improvements that are on the way with the next major patch according to an article on the official Fallout website:

  • More Ammo Per Exchange: We’re adding options to buy and sell 10x and 100x the normal amounts of ammo so that you can exchange larger stacks more quickly.
  • Fewer Button Presses: Buying and selling is being incorporated directly into the terminal page for each ammo type, which means there will be one less screen for you to click through when exchanging your ammo. Combined with the increased exchange amounts above, you will be able to convert more ammo with less flipping through terminal menus.
  • Increased AmmoPoints Cap: You will be able to save up many more AmmoPoints for a rainy day, because we’re increasing the maximum amount you can store from 2,000 to 100,000

With these planned changes, the Ammo Converter should be able to actually do its job better while not taking up too much of the player's time. Fallout 76 has had a rough start for Season One, but it seems that the developers have a handle on fixing some of the problems players are facing.


If you haven't yet played Fallout 76, you can get your post-apocalyptic adventure started on Steam for $39.99 or your regional equivalent. The game has also made its debut on Xbox Game Pass, so now's as good a time as any to start your subscription.
