Resource mainly used for researching items into blueprints at workbenches or going down the tech tree, which allows for targeting certain items you want to acquire. It's also a type of currency, used for trading various items at the Scientist Outpost and the Bandit Camp. As such, Scrap is very valuable and essential at any point in the game.

Scrap can be easily obtained from recycling relatively useless, common components like Semi Automatic Body or Sheet Metal. However the recyclers are only found in monuments so it may be risky on high pop servers.

As of January 2021, it costs a total of 21785 scrap to craft all 3 work benches and to research every blueprint from them.
  • 5350 scrap to research all tier 3 blueprints
  • 10140 scrap to research all tier 2 blueprints
  • 4495 scrap to research all tier 1 blueprints
  • 1800 scrap to craft all 3 work benches

Somewhat quick way for a decent amount of Scrap:
If you come across a road/street/path, try and destroy every [url=]Road Sign[/url]. They drop 1x [url=]Metal Pipe[/url] and 1x [url=]Road Signs[/url], both of which recycle into 5x [url=]Scrap[/url] and a [url=]High Quality Metal[/url].

If you are on a high pop server try to recicle on bandit or outpost

zGmanz 26 pts. 5 years ago

Just wall off one of the monuments and you have your own private recycler!
