Ammo is one of the biggest parts of resource management in the Resident Evil Series, and Village is no exception. Thankfully, there are two main ways of obtaining more ammo, either buying it at the shop or crafting it by combining gunpowder and chem fluid. As each type of gun takes specific ammo types, it is important to consider which type of ammo to buy or craft.

Customizable Parts

In addition to upgrading weapons at the Gunsmithy, customizable parts are available at the Duke's Emporium under Supplies to further upgrade weapons. For example, the M1897 shotgun's rate of fire cannot be upgraded via the Gunsmithy but can be upgraded by purchasing the M1897 - Hair Trigger and attaching it to the M1897.
