Fallout 4 Mod – Balanced Craftable Ammunition

Craftable Ammo Missile Recipe

Adds new crafting recipes to the Chemistry station that allows the player to craft most ammunition types.

I used the same recipes that Bethesda used in their Contraptions Workshop DLC, for ammunition types that weren’t able to be produced using the manufacturing belts I tried to create my a reasonable and balanced recipe for the ammo type.

A separate version that also includes the Ammo types added by DLC is also available.

I specifically chose to exclude Fatman Shells due to them being a power weapon, I think that these should be earned through gameplay due to their awesome power.
