Starfield offers a great deal of weapons and different ammos that fit them.
New players can have difficulty identifying the right ammos for their weapons and can run out of them pretty quickly.
We have compiled a list of all Ammo types and the weapons that use them.

While players begin their journey in Starfield as miners, they gradually start putting these extractions to use by creating unique weapons. Players need these weapons to defend themselves from any danger that they may come across in their planetary exploration or in open space. 

Here is a guide to help you understand all about the different types of ammo and the weapons that use them. 

Different Types of Weapons and Ammo

The weapons in Starfield can be bifurcated into two types - Physical and Energy. And they use a variety of ammo, which can be tricky to keep track of. This leads to new players running out of ammo very quickly. 

Physical weapons utilize gunpowder, while energy weapons, as the name suggests, utilize different types of energies. They all use distinct ammos and the weapons are not just different in their appearance but in their use as well. To help players identify the types of ammos and their weapons easily, we have compiled a list of them. It is as follows:
