Not showing recipes I know I picked up

Platform: XBox

*Description: Found an Ammo recipe, but later when I go to “Make” said Ammo, the recipe isn’t there. This has happened with both .50 Armor Piercing and 7.62 Armor Piercing… which are vital to my gameplay style.

*Steps To Reproduce: The .50, was playing a solo run (literally death marched to go get it) and I saw the list on the right hand side list that I’d picked it up

The 7.62 was found by accident on a dead hunter in some ruins but I was playing on multiplayer. However upon returning to my own game, I went to the same location which still had markers …but when I got there everything disappeared as if I had already been there …

Again in both instances I read the text that I’d found the recipe into my inventory, but when I checked my achievements (after not being able to make the ammo) and the achievementa do not show them either.

Welcome to the forums!

None of the ammo crafting schematics drop from the machine loot pool. So, what did you witness, was not the ammo schematic pick-up, but instead the ammo pick-up.

Common ammo schems are all pre-placed. Locs here: Schematics - Fixed Locations - #137 by Aesyle
And experimental ammo schems drop after base defense. Though, Xbox doesn’t have that update yet.
