How to Get Infinite Ammo

Unfortunately, similar to the previous game, Naughty Dog decided not to include an Infinite Ammo feature in the game even if you have already unlocked New Game+ or unlocked all of the Trophies.

There is no legitimate way to get the an Infinite Ammo feature unlocked for your weapons without messing with the game files or using a third-party software. However, we have listed a few tips that you can follow below to manage your ammo consumption efficiently.

Custom Difficulty Settings

Custom Difficulty settings allow you to pick and choose which parts of the game will be hard or easy. If you want to have an easier time coming across more ammo and resources, go into game difficulty, and change Resources to Very Light. Even if you still want the enemies and game to be challenging, simply changing this one feature will make it easier to pick up ammo.

Execute Stealth Kills

If you are still hidden during combat, it is suggested that you execute stealth kills as much as possible instead of wasting your ammo for kills. Only use your ammo when trying to execute enemies that you cannot reach or when they have already found your position.

If you have an ally with you, they will often also execute a stealth kill when you do, allowing you to conserve even more ammo by making use of your partner.

Sweeping the Area

Be sure to explore every corner of the area before moving on in the campaign. This will not only allow you to get more ammo and ingredients, but also collect all hidden items in the area.

Using Enhanced Listen Mode

Turning this feature on will cause your weapon to sway less when aiming, allowing you to land your shots more accurately and be more efficient with your ammo consumption.

    • I’m more of a stealth player so I didn’t enjoy the boss fight in the hospital. One touch and you’re dead, that’s not enjoyable or realistic. Might as well run outside and kick a bear. I’d get the same thing happen, dead. Too much story in this game as well, I feel like it’s hours of videos that takes away from the game play. Just give me the details and move it along. I don’t need to know who’s screwing who.
