When you speak to any of your companions, you’ll have the immediate option to trade gear back and forth. You may be thinking that you need to hand over your ammo as soon as a firefight has taken place, but you may be surprised to know that they don’t need ammo.

Sure, every companion is going to carry ammo with them, but you’re welcome to help yourself to it, with a catch: as long as they have 1 bullet, they can fire their gun endlessly. If you enter the “Let’s trade gear” option, you can take as many bullets as you would like.

If you accidentally take all of their bullets, transfer exactly one bullet back to them, and they’ll be ready to help out in tricky combat situations once again. They’ll never deplete it, so you’ll be ready to keep kicking pirate booty without any issue, even if they’re not fully stocked up on ammo. It’s also great because their spare bullets could save you in a life-or-death situation, so be sure to use that to your advantage.
