The Ammo Box is a furniture item. It can be purchased (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) from the Arms Dealer for 10 GC in Hardmode, or (Old-gen console version) from the Traveling Merchant for 15 GC at any time.
Placing and pressing ⚷ Open / Activate on the Ammo Box grants the Ammo Box buff, which provides ranged weapons with a 1/5 (20%) chance per shot not to consume ammunition. On the Desktop version, Console version, and Mobile version, this lasts until the player dies or leaves the world. On the Old-gen console version, it lasts for 10 minutes. On all versions, the buff can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon (), by selecting the icon using Cycle Next/Previous Buff and then pressing Remove Buff (), by selecting the icon and canceling it in the equipment menu (), or by double-tapping the buff icon ().
Unlike equipment buff items, the Ammo Box must be placed in order to activate the buff. It can be mined with a pickaxe or drill and picked up again, even while the buff is active, which will not cancel the buff. Placement is only dependent on an adequate space of 2×2 tiles being available.
- The Ammo Box can be activated limitlessly with no cooldown period. It is never consumed, and all players may use it to give themselves the buff.
- (Old-gen console version) Activating the Ammo Box while the buff is already active resets the 10-minute buff duration.
- Ammo Reservation Potion, a potion with a similar effect.
