Soon After E3 2016, Bethesda launched the Contraption DLC for Fallout which is all about Building machines, conveyer belts, scaffolding kits, complex gadgets and much more to improve the Wasteland Settlements. This Guide will show you how to built the best Ammunition plant in Fallout 4 to start your own bullets rather than hunting in the wasteland.
How to Build Ammunition Plant
The Players have already started their exploration of the newly added add-ons which can help you build the machines from the scratch. The Build a machine can be quite easy, but there various ways which can handle the factory quite well. Once you understand the basic concept then you can easily use this technique or mess around with them to get another result.
The Builder can be found inside Workshop Menu, Manufacturing, and Finally Machinery. There are 10 Type of Builders you will find and each have their purpose such as:
- Basic Objective – Builder
- Armor Forge – Armor
- Weapon Forge – Weapons(Basic)
- Auto-Loom – Clothes
- Energy Weapon Forge – Energy Weapons
- Heavy Weapon Forge – Heavy Weapons
- Ammunition Plant – Ammo
- Explosive’s Mill – Mines or Grenades
- Pyrotechnic’s Mill – Fireworks Mortar Shells
- Food Processor – Food
We will be focusing on the Ammunition Plant for now and try to create your own Production house for Ammo. The Ammunition Plant requires Gun Nut 1 and Science Rank 1 Perk to qualify you to build and the resource you need are:
- Circuitry x2
- Gear x3
- Rubber x4
- Steel x10
Once you’ve built the Plant, it’s time to make it look a good process unit, so you require the Conveyor Belt(Power > Manufacturing > Miscellaneous) to transport the ammo from the plant to Conveyor Storage which holds them. You can also try connecting the Conveyor Storage directly to the Plant if your production is limited. The Conveyor Storage requires:
- Steel x8
- Screw x1
- Rubber x2
- Gear x1
Now that the concept is clear how to construct it’s time to Power the Plant. You need At least 9 Power to Built it so can either build a fusion Generator giving you a good power or Built one large and one Medium generator and connect it to a Terminal which should be close to the Generator and the machinery.
Connect the Wires then run the Generator, activate the Terminal and select which type of Ammo you want to produce then add the required components. Your Production should have started(if you’ve done correctly), go ahead and built come more machinery. Also, check out the Contraption Cheat Codes to spawn new items. If you have built something unique then do let us know in the comments below.
