- “Used to smelt metals into tools and weapons. Unlock more recipes by adding an anvil, crucible or tool and die set.”
The Forge is a crafting station that allows players to smelt items into their base components. These components are stored inside the Forge, and used to craft more advanced items.
Once crafted, the Forge must first be placed and then requires a fuel source (e.g. Wood) to begin smelting. When a player accesses the Forge there are four small windows that display to the right of the normal crafting interface: Tools, Fuel, Input, and Output.
To begin crafting with the Forge place fuel in the Fuel slots and place an item you wish to smelt down in the Input slots. For example placing Raw Iron or Short Iron Pipes in the Input window will increase the number next "Iron" in the Forge's Input window.
Next turn on the Forge, the items in the Input window will be slowly consumed and the numbers to right will increase.
Finally, select the recipe you wish to craft (e.g. Forged Iron) and click "Smelt". The Smelt button is directly under the arrows that increase or decrease that amount to be crafted. After clicking Smelt the numbers in the Input window will decrease and the item will be crafted.
Most items the player finds in game can be smelted down at the Forge. Often smelting an item will yield more base materials than if the player just scrapped it.
The following items can be smelted down into base components:
The Forge has three slots for three different tools. Each tool enables more recipes to be crafted at the Forge.
- Anvil - This item can crafted or found from looting and unlocks several recipes.
- Crucible - The recipe for this item is learned after the player acquires the Steel Smithing (Perk). The item enables the player to craft Forged Steel and Bulletproof Glass.
- Tool & Die Set - The final enhancement for the Forge. The Tool & Die Set enables the player to craft the most complex recipes at the Forge.
