How to Get Handgun Ammo in Palworld
In Palworld, handgun ammo is the primary ammunition type used for pistols, which fall under the broader category of ranged weapons. Pistols offer a reliable way to deal ranged damage to hostile wild animals and Syndicate enemies.
Compared to bows, they offer higher fire rate and often greater firepower, making them effective for self-defense and hunting powerful prey. You should always stock up on handgun ammo in Palworld whenever you can and our guide will help you do exactly that.

Vendors: The easiest way to acquire ammo is to purchase it from vendors. Several merchants throughout the game sell handgun ammo, including:
Dune Shelter: Located on the far east island, this shelter has a vendor who sells various ammo types, including handgun rounds.
