Gunpowder in Far Cry 6 is a valuable resource for crafting mods for your weapons. This rare resource is scattered around Yara and doesn’t come easy. However, it’s essential to upgrading your weapons.

In this Far Cry 6 gunpowder guide, we’ll explain how to locate these crafting resources and where to consistently find FND caches that contain gunpowder so you can upgrade your guns more frequently.


How to find gunpowder in Far Cry 6

If you want to craft mods for your weapons in Far Cry 6, you must find gunpowder.

You can easily find gunpowder by locating FND caches. These boxes of resources are frequently found tucked into different enemy bases throughout Yara. On your map, they are easily identifiable as large, white containers with a circle in the center. When you’re not in your map, FND caches look like black boxes with a red and white FND logo.

These caches should not be confused with similar-looking FND caches that contain weapons. On your map, these caches are also designated with a large, white container icon that contain a gun in the center. These boxes also look identical to their counterparts that contain gunpowder, so use your map to differentiate between them.

FND caches are on most bases and other hostile areas that you can liberate from enemy forces. You can also learn the location of FND caches by discovering notes in the open world or by talking to allies at bases or at liberated locations. When you learn about FND caches from notes or from other characters, they will be tagged on your map.
