How To Craft Shotgun Ammo & More Crafting Recipes In Resident Evil Village

How To Craft Shotgun Ammo & More Crafting Recipes In Resident Evil Village
Running out of shotgun ammo happens, and it happens fast. This guide on How To Craft Shotgun Ammo & More Crafting Recipes In Resident Evil Village will tell you how you can unlock the ability to craft shotgun shells and other special ammo types by unlocking more recipes.

For a large portion of the start of the game you’re very limited on your crafting options. You can make healing supplies and basic handgun ammo, that’s it. There are other recipes available including Shotgun Ammo, Sniper Rifle Ammo, Explosive Rounds, Flashbangs, Pipe Bombs, and Land Mines – but each of these must be unlocked before you can use them.

In order to unlock more recipes, you need to progress further through the game via the main story. After you clear the castle you return to the village and have to complete a few more tasks and puzzles. Eventually you will get a four winged key that let’s you access new areas, including the three main areas you need to clear to get the remaining parts back. I’m unsure but I think these parts can be completed in different orders but the outcome should be the same.

My first area was the area with the doll enemy. After completing that and returning to the town the merchant said he had more stock available. This is where you can buy more recipes that let you craft additional items.

  • Complete the castle area, return to the village, and complete that area
  • Once the merchant tells you about the three bosses holding the remains, you need to hunt the first one down
  • After clearing that area and returning, the merchant will sell you additional recipes
