How to make bullets in New World?

Here's how to make bullets in New World.

To make bullets in New World, you will need to gather the following resources and visit a workshop to craft them.

  •  Iron Ingots
  • Linen
  • Gun Powder

You can get the iron ingots you need from melting down iron ore which can be obtained from iron ore nodes. If you need iron, we reccomend trying locations such as mines, monster dens - also use this awesome resource map over at

After iron, you will need to gather linen, which is made from fiber that you get from hemp plants. Hemp plants can be found in most forest regions in the game, so we recommend searching there, or using the resource map to locate it. Once you got fiber, you will need to refine it over at a loom that can be found in most towns in the game.

The next material you will need for bullets is gunpowder. To make gunpowder, you will need to gather some more materials. That said, here's everything you will need to make gunpowder listed below.

  • Flint
  • Saltpeter
  • charcoal

Overall all there of these materials are not too tricky to get. First, you can get flint near rivers and along the shore in most areas.

Saltpeter, like iron ore, can be found in several mines, monster dens on the map - again, use that handy resource map to help you find saltpeter locations.

Now for charcoal, you will need to gather wood and then take it to a smelter back at a town that can be found via its icon on the map. When you got everything, you will be able to make bullets back at town using a workshop table.
