Jar, pistol powder is a miscellaneous item in Fallout: New Vegas.

Contents

Characteristics

This item contains 200 units of pistol powder, which are used to make low caliber rounds.

Locations

Bought from merchants across the Mojave Wasteland.

Notes

Pistol powder can be used to craft any of the small caliber ammos, for example 10mm, 9mm, and .45 Auto.

Bugs

Sometimes the powders are not added to your inventory; this can be remedied by dropping the jar on the ground, then picking it back up.

  • This bug has been fixed in the 1.2.0.31x patch.
  • PlayStation 3  When purchasing multiple jars of powder (any type) with New Vegas patch 1.2, only 200 powders are added to the inventory as if you bought only 1 jar. Attempting to buy 1 jar at a time will result in the remaining jars in the merchant's inventory to disappear completely. There appears to be no fix for this bug because of the patch's new features, which includes automatically adding powder in the player's inventory after purchasing powder jars from a merchant.
