Ammo drops and the need to conserve your ammo have been a hot-button issue since RE4. I'm curious to see how many people ran out of ammo at any time during their first playthrough of RE6.
So, were you barely making it through each encounter with only a few shots left? Were you constantly forced to use your knife to finish of a couple enemies? Or were you swimming in bullets through all four campaigns? Was there a specific section that caused you to waste your shots? A particular campaign where you just couldn't find enough ammo?
Is resource management still an ever-present entity in the RE universe or are the days of eeking by with barely enough shots to take out a single enemy a thing of the past?
Let us know! Please, feel free to elaborate on your vote.

Sometimes I ran out of ammo because I was never sure if I'm supposed to shoot the enemy or wait until a cutscene triggers revealing a weakness.
Still, not even the older games have scarce ammo, they all have way more than you'll need. You can even make your own ammo in RE3. They're just unforgiving if you waste what you find, and that's not uncommon first time through.
While definitely not as generous as 4 or 5, if you make good use of the melee system then you won't have any problems with ammo. The only time you're almost guaranteed to run dry is during the haos fight on pro
