Handgun Ammo is an ammunition type in Resident Evil 2 remake. This ammunition type is retrievable in Leon's campaign for his handgun, Matilda, and in Claire's campaign for her handgun, SLS 60.

In addition, they can be found at various locations only in the [1st] scenario of the game, but can be crafted by combining two Gunpowders,[1] two Large Gunpowders or one Gunpowder with one Large Gunpowder in both the [1st] and [2nd] scenario.
