Description[ | ]

Scrapping refers to the process of destroying items within your inventory in order to convert them into their base resources. For example, a Car Air Filter can be scrapped to obtain Brass, while a Lead Car Battery can be scrapped to obtain Lead.

Scrapping is useful for saving inventory space when needed, as many different items of the same material can be converted to base resources which can then stack together. However, it should be noted that scrapping items that are meltable results in fewer resources than you would be able to obtain by smelting the items in a Forge.

Item to Scrap[ | ]

There is a certain 'scrap efficiency', in which certain items produce more resources when scrapped compared to other items. For example, a single Candy Tin Can yields the same amount of Iron as two Empty Cans.

To calculate the amount of resources obtained from scrapping an item, divide the weight of the item by the weight of a single unit of the resource. Some examples are given below.

Iron[ | ]

  • Iron has a weight of 0.5 lb.
  • A single Hub Cap has a weight of 1.0 lb.
  • 1.0 lb divided by 0.5 lb (1.0 ÷ 0.5) is equal to two units of Iron.

Brass[ | ]

  • Brass has a weight of 0.5 lb.
  • A single Brass Candlestick has a weight of 2.0 lb.
  • 2.0 lb divided by 0.5 lb (2.0 ÷ 0.5) is equal to four units of Brass.

Lead[ | ]

  • Lead has a weight of 1.0 lb.
  • A single Lead Car Battery has a weight of 10.0 lb.
  • 10.0 lb divided by 1.0 lb (10.0 ÷ 1.0) is equal to 10 units of Lead.
