Saltpeter is a beginner crafting resource in New World used to make Gunpowder, which is then used to make bullets. Here’s where to find it.
Saltpeter is a tier-one crafting resource in New World and one that only really matters if you intend on playing with the Musket. Saltpeter is turned into Gunpowder, which is then turned into Cartridges.

However, the game doesn't really push you in the direction of where to actually find Saltpeter. It's a little frustrating if you want to start shooting stuff but don't have enough bullets. We'll go over some of the best places to get saltpeter in the starting areas of Aeternum. Remember, this is all subject to change for the game's release, although we will update in the few days after launch.
Saltpeter is found in pretty much every single cave and quarry across the map. In the very early game, you'll receive a quest in Windswar called "Remnant of Doom" from Tahir Fayed.
This sends you on a quest to cleanse a cave of Corruption, inside Torrentdawn Cave. You'll need to defeat the Corrupted Chaplain, one of your very first mini-bosses, but once defeated you're free to explore. That's where you'll find the Saltpeter.
You can return to the cave by following the southeastern road from Windsward.

In the late game, as in approaching level 50, the best place to get Saltpeter is at the Ebonrock Quarry. You may well be sent here on a Faction Quest to kill various mobs, but for the purposes of this guide, it probably has the highest concentration of Saltpeter of anywhere on the map.
Ebonrock Quarry is located in the northwest region of Everfall.
Saltpeter is used to craft Gunpowder (which can be done from zero Engineering level) and then turned into Cartridges.
There are a few different Cartridges in the game:
You can also craft a Powder Horn, which is a cosmetic housing item for your character's home. Crafted at Furnishing level 102, which is…well, a lot of crafting Furniture.
Each Gunpowder is crafted with one Saltpeter, two flints, and five charcoal, so it's not the hardest resource in the world to make.
