Gunpowder is a crafting material that was added in a May 29, 2016 update. It is an essential component when making Flintlock Ammunition, as it replaces the usage of Coal in the older recipe. Gunpowder can only be gathered through trading or by crafting, the latter requiring 2 Coal and 1 Saltpeter for every piece made, as well as a Crafting Level of 6+.
