How to Make Guns?
Weapons are one of the most crucial items you will need to protect yourself, and of course, knowing how to craft a gun is required.
It is critical to locate and learn the schematics for any sort of gun in the game. To obtain schematics, visit a local bookstore, which is frequently found within towns. You can also find them via airdrops, which occur every few days.
Finding your gun schematics is only the beginning. All gun recipes only allow you to create a gun if you already have the necessary pieces, but it will not allow you to make your own gun parts.
Finding gun parts is becoming difficult because all guns require four parts. To find gun parts, you must search the world for gun safes or visit a gun store called Shotgun Messiah, which may be located inside cities.
Inside the gun stores, you’ll find crates that need to be cracked open, as well as other gun parts. To be built, every gun requires a barrel, parts, receiver, and stock.
A flashlight is not required for this part. Obtaining all of these components is a time-consuming procedure that can be sped up with scavenging perks that provide a higher percentage chance of finding better loot.
Once you’ve located all of the necessary gun parts, simply click on one of them, then in the crafting menu, click the assemble button, and the gun assembly UI  will display. Place all of the gun parts in their respective slots in the assembly UI, and your gun is now finished.
As of writing, there are nine craftable weapons in the game: Pistol, Magnum, Shotgun, Sawed-Off Shotgun, Hunting Rifle, SMG, AK-47 Assault Rifle, Sniper Rifle, and Rocket Launcher. All of these guns go through the same crafting process.
Assembly UI can also be used to swap low-quality parts. If you find a higher-quality part for a certain gun, simply open the assembly UI for that gun and switch the parts. If you find numerous parts of the same model, you can use a workbench to combine them and produce a higher-quality one.
If you wish to produce bullets for a specific gun, you must first learn the perk for that gun bullets in firearms perk three, and then gather all of the necessary materials.
