How to craft a blunderbuss in New World

As with any new weapon, there’s a little back and forth when it comes to adding it to your arsenal.

You can craft an Iron Blunderbuss at any Tier 2 workshop, However, you will need the following materials to do this:

  • 12 x Iron Ingots
  • 3 x Refined Wood
  • 2 x course leather

From here you can start crafting higher level versions. including the Thunderbuss, which has to be one of our all-time favorite weapon names.

The blunderbuss can be quite a fearsome weapon in the right hands.

Best weapon pairs and core attributes

Since the blunderbuss scales with the intelligence and strength Core attributes, it opens it up to many different pairings.

Here are all of the different weapons you can pair this one-shot monster with, with our personal favorites being those Great Axe, Warhammer, and firefighters.

pair weapon Why?
Big Axe Since the Great Ax also scales with Strength, it works perfectly with the Blunderbuss. It offers a lot of lockdown CC that you can use to seduce enemies and then hit them with your blunderbuss in one shot
warhammer Since the Warhammer also scales with Strength, it works perfectly with the Blunderbuss. It offers a lot of lockdown CC that you can use to seduce enemies and then hit them with your blunderbuss in one shot
firefighters If you want to play a high DPS build, you can use the Fire Staff to deal medium damage at a fast pace, and when swapped out for the Blunderbuss it can get deadly
ice mitt The Ice Gauntlet scales with Intelligence and is a decent combo for your blunderbuss. Again, it offers good CC for pinning enemies in one place.
sword The sword scales with strength and offers decent CC to pair with your blunderbuss. However, it’s less effective than the Great Ax and Warhammer, so it’s a little further down this list
ax The Hatchet / Blunderbuss combo is perfect for fast players. With plenty of survivability due to Berserk and Defy Death, you can get up close and personal (perfect for the Blunderbuss) and get to safety without a scratch
