I was playing multiplayer the other day, and a friend of mine was able to craft Projectile Ammunition using Ferrite. I don't have that recipe, and he doesn't remember where he got it from, but he did confirm that there is a blueprint for it.

Googling didn't turn up any information at all about a recipe, I only found links that talked about the different weapon types.

Does anybody know where/how to get the recipe?

  • Did you unlock the weapon specialist, and if so, how far did you progress through his chain?

  • @Polygnome - I did, and I think I've done 2 of the missions for him. Timmy Jim's answer got me the blueprint, I'm not sure if there's another way to do it, but it at least resolves my issue

I do not think there is a blueprint for these. I just checked in my game, and when I went into the crafting menu in my inventory, there was no option to make more ammo. However, when I hovered over the ammo that I already had, and pressed E to craft more, it made more without any issues. Interestingly enough, the ammo shows up in the crafting menu now. This might be a bug.

One thing you can try then is have your friend transfer some ammo to you or find your own (I believe I first found my own ammo via searching containers that are randomly found on planets). Once you obtain some, see if you can craft some via the method I just described above (hold E on it - or whatever the console equivalent would be). If it does what it did for me, you should then be able to craft your own ammo in the crafting menu after that.

  • Aha! I think you are right! I just logged in and did what you said (Held "E" over the stack to make more) and it worked! My friend didn't articulate to me that's how he did it, he just said that he made a bunch and gave me some when I had run out and said I didn't have the recipe.

  • He just confirmed that he made it from a blueprint, not from the 'Create more' option

  • @Taegost but what I am saying is, now that you crafted some via holding E, does it show that you have the blueprint when you open the crafting menu in your inventory?

  • @TimmyJim - Ok, well, you're right. If you hold your cursor over it, and hold 'E', even if you don't have the Ferrite to make it, it gives you the blueprint (At least, it did for me). So... You found the answer after all! Sorry, I had missed the "if it does what it did for me" part of your sentence when I read through it earlier
