The Ammo Box buff provides a 20% chance per shot of a ranged weapon not consuming ammunition for a duration of 10 minutes. The buff can be activated limitlessly, with no cooldown period. It can even be activated again while already active, to reset the 10-minute buff timer. The Ammo Box is never consumed, and all players may use it to give themselves the buff. The buff can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon.
Unlike equipment buff items, the Ammo Box must be placed in order to activate the buff. It can be mined with a Pickaxe and picked up again, even while the buff is active, which will not cancel the buff. Placement is only dependent on an adequate flat space of two horizontal tiles being available.
