Resources are obtained by salvaging items in the Survivors' camp or in your inventory. There are 3 types of resources; "Materials", "Food", and "Misc". Materials are used to build camp structures or create things from recipes you've obtained (sometimes from salvaging). "Misc" materials are things like water which don't show up in your stock.

Salvaging[edit | edit source]

Bag crafting

You can salvage items in two ways:

  • By accessing your stock in your camp; resources here will be stored directly in your stock and can be used in the camp.
  • By salvaging items in your inventory by clicking the hammer icon and dragging them into it. You can craft items from here if you have the resources in your inventory. These resources cannot be used in the camp unless you first deposit them into your stock.

Note that you cannot salvage poor, expired, or legendary quality items. Higher quality items have a higher chance to give resources for that item that aren't 100%. You can salvage items that are about to fall apart (low durability), and this will have no penalty.

As you both salvage and craft items, your efficiency in creating those items will go up.

Buying/selling/trading resources[edit | edit source]

You can directly obtain or sell resources in the following ways:

  • You can buy resources from Jeffrey once a day.
  • You can sell one specific kind of resource to Antonio a day.
  • Trade with other players.

Trading resources between players was introduced in V1.19. Before this, the only way to trade resources was by creating items and then trade those. This was very inefficient however, as it often required twice the resources to make the item, and required other resources to make the item.

List[edit | edit source]

Scrap metal is a common resource that is often required in large amounts for creating camp buildings, and is also used in various weapon recipes.

Sources[edit | edit source]

The best way to get scrap metal is to find Industrial metal pieces, since they salvage into so much and are fairly common. The best way to find them is by looking at various set locations (see page) although it is also fairly commonly found by checking the trash / recycling, desks, and lockers.

Wood is a common resource that is used in many useful recipes, as well as needed in a lot of camp buildings in large amounts.

Sources[edit | edit source]

Salvaging chairs and stools is the leading means of obtaining wood resource because of their wide availability in certain maps and they cost a relatively small amount of Rest/Stamina/Fire points to pick up, compared to other items made with wood.

A great zone for collecting wood giving items is Mazon College due to the large amount of chairs. The same applies for the Sacramento Public Library in the «South district», the Bibi-Too Café in «The alley of settlements» of the Sacramento Suburbs (north of Amber Reid) and the Perfume of the Past preschool directly under the Condemned car dealership in Downtown Santa Rosa. Another good, though not so reliable, source of chairs is the Auction House Secret Passage in Arizona Jurassic Museum. Another great source is logs, which can be found searching the trash/recycling, desks, and shelves.

Tools are an important resource that can seem uncommon unless you know where to look. Many camp buildings require them to be built, and they are also required to harvest resources when farming. It is also used in a few recipes.

Sources[edit | edit source]

Since every map has at least one rake and shovel somewhere, they are the easiest items to find, although they are often poor quality.

Good zones for salvageable tool items are:

Zone Salvageable Location
Bodega Bay Often The house in the north west most corner of the map has 2 hammers, a crowbar, and an abstract sculpture; At the south beach, the «Coastal Cave» has a shovel and a pickaxe.
Shopping Sunset Often The construction area (next to toy room, north of golf course) has 2 hammers, 2 shovels, and some other items.
Arizona Jurassic Museum Often The «Excavation site» has 6 shovels, 5 pickaxes, a hammer by the southwest corner and some tool boxes around the location.
Arizona Jurassic Museum Sometimes The area where Louise is next, the «Cairn Field», has a shovel and a pickaxe.
Arizona Jurassic Museum Sometimes The building where Wanahton is next, the «Unsteady power plant», has a shovel, a pickaxe and 2 tool box.

Sources[edit | edit source]

Many good fabric items can be found in Locker (green).png lockers. Some good zones for collecting fabric are:

  • Mazon College - the lockers in the main building (both floors). Secret passage are the best source, especially the SP - Stadium (both around the field as well as the lockers). The SP - Store also has a lot of fabric items on the shelves in the first room.
  • Sunset Mall - the toy shop, the kindergarten just north of it (lots of pillows and a few plushes and dolls), and the lockers of the bowling alley as well as the «Jellyfish Public Swimmingpool» (fifth room on the left of the spawn) contains fabric.
  • Arizona Jurassic Museum - there is a house south of spawn (down the hill) that has a shelf with multiple plushes.

You can also get a decent amount of fabric from farming (being the only non-food resource you can actually get from farming).

An easy source of medicinal herbs is algae / pain killers, which can be found in wall Medicine cabinet.png medicine cabinets (common), Red trashcan.png red trashcans (semi-common), and Peruvian infected drops (common, only algae).

While a bit of a cheat, a great source of herbs is by doing Sylvia Bluth's side mission in Downtown Santa Rosa (keep in mind she is not always there). During this side mission all medical zombies and containers in and around the nearby store will have greatly increased odds of dropping antibiotics (average quality). You can then drop or salvage these in your inventory to prevent finishing the quest (as this will decrease the collection counter) until you have all the herbs you need.

Blueprints are an important and somewhat unique resource as they have a singular purpose of combing weapons together using a Forge.png Forge (see this page for specifics on weapon combination). Nothing else uses or requires it.

The amount of blueprints required to combine weapons together varies based on the weapons used, but often is between 3-4.

Meat is a resource that is used in various cooking and research projects.

Sources[edit | edit source]

The best zones for collecting meat are:

  • Sunset Mall - The "supermarket" (and to a lesser extent "apartment") secret passage has a lot of meat.

Fish are a somewhat uncommon resource to find in most containers, but are easy to obtain by fishing. Primarily used in cooking and research projects.

Sources[edit | edit source]

The best source for fish is by fishing (preferably with Fishing rod), with Bodega Bay (specifically the large lake to the north of spawn) and Walker River being a great source for fishing spots . You can also find fish in Fish tank stand 1.png fish tanks (actual fish) such as in the Sacramento Suburbs SP - Apartment and Arizona Jurassic Museum SP - Oasis Diner Entrance - «Ravaged survivor's base».

Vegetables are a common resource primarily used in cooking and research projects.

Sources[edit | edit source]

While fairly common, it is a hard to purposefully collect resource since it has very few set locations (many of which are commonly expired) and most of these spread out. The best way to collect items that give it is to search everything in a map since food items are somewhat common. Bodega Bay is a good zone for this (especially since it has lots of mushrooms).

While it would seem farming would be a great source of vegetables, it's a fairly mediocre source as even when you are lucky enough to get the right plant, each one will at most give you 5, and commonly only gives 3. It's still advised to grow vegetable plants however to slowly build up your vegetable reserves.

The easiest way to get butter is by find strawberry cake. There are 4 main ways to do this:

  • Pastry Stands - These are located in certain buildings such as the Supermarket and the Cybercafé in Sunset Mall. They can drop pastries including the strawberry cake, donuts and cupcakes.
  • Vending machines - There's a decent chance to find various types of cakes/pastries, including strawberry cake (grab any other pastries listed below as well).
  • Lockers - all lockers may have, but especially those in the mazon stadium/field Secret passage, as it's not uncommon to find multiple there (also check the vending machines in that secret passage!).
  • André Patisserie - There is a pastry shop in the Grey alley of the mall to the west of spawn (directly southwest of the Black Mages cybercafé; inside this pastry shop is a cake slice sitting on the counter (decent chance to be salvageable). Warning: shop has a lot of higher level mobs.

  • During much of beta, salt was the hardest resource to collect as only pasta packages and crabs gave it, and even then at a fairly low chance.

Milk is a semi-uncommon resource unless you have a goat pen, as very few items give the resource, although the amount of milk most items give is decently high and most of the items are decently common (other than Milk bottle and Farmer's Basket).

Sources[edit | edit source]

There are a couple set Milk bottle locations which are worth checking out if you need milk since they are somewhat rare to find in most containers and give a large amount of milk.

It is recommended to get a goat pen as soon as possible if you need milk, as it makes collecting it much easier.

For the item, see Egg.

Eggs are a rare resource (at least without a chicken coop) mostly used for cooking and research projects.

Sources[edit | edit source]

The best way to farm eggs is by finding, well, an egg! You can occasionally find eggs in nests. It's also possible to find eggs (as well as mayonnaise) uncommonly as a random item that can be found occasionally. The best source of eggs are the farmer's basket resource crate and cheese omelets, although both are rare to find. While not cheap, the easiest way to get eggs is to buy them from Jeffrey in the camp. You can also buy cheese omelets from Henry Collins in Lakeview, although they are fairly expensive.

A nest

You can find a list of nest locations here.

Due to the rarity of eggs, it is recommended to not use eggs on research projects until after you build a chicken coop. This is because chicken coops allow you to collect 2 eggs an hour after you last collected, but requires a large amount of eggs to actually build.

Seeds are a resource who's primary use is for farming, although it's also used in a few food recipes, and semi commonly required for research projects.

Sources[edit | edit source]

While many items have a chance to give seeds and none of these items are strictly uncommon, it can be difficult to purposefully find items to salvage into seeds. The best source of these items is mostly fridges, picnic baskets, the trash, and various locations around maps (such as trees).

The best source of seeds is actually from farming. While this seems a bit counterintuitive at first (since it costs seeds to farm), all plants when harvested have at least a chance to give 1 seed, with many having a chance to give even more! The best plant for seeds is wheat as it not only gives the most seeds (5) but also has a 100% chance to always give them![Confirm] Just note that pulling out plants that give less seeds isn't always advised, as you will often find the seeds lost from replanting aren't worth the seeds gained from plants that give more of them when grown.

The square garden in Sunset Mall is a good source of fruits.

Alcohol is an uncommonly used resource as most recipes that use it aren't currently very useful (as the "pain killer" effect doesn't work when simply drunk). It's main uses are for upgrading certain clothing and research projects.

Note: using an alcoholic beverage and clicking on an unlit campfire before the animation ends is currently the only way to trigger the "painkiller" effect without triggering a rest.

Sources[edit | edit source]

One of the best locations for alcohol is Mazon College's field secret passage; directly north of the crate are 2 wine bottles and 3 wine cups, which have a high chance of being salvageable.

Another good location is the Mall's Palm Tree area. There is a bar with a pool table there and lots of alcohol.

As most alcoholic beverage locations are often expired, probably the best source of alcohol is actually from molotov cocktails as they are somewhat common and are always salvageable.
