How Do You scrap Junk in Fallout 4? Let’s be honest, Fallout 4’s Commonwealth is littered with trash. Knowing what to do with that trash is the difference between a well-constructed base and a shanty that is vulnerable to raiders and other wasteland inhabitants. This tutorial will teach you all you need to know to put your trash to good use, including how to scrap it.
Firstly, the phrase “scrap your junk” is interpreted somewhat differently than one might anticipate. There are a variety of sorts of trash that can be repurposed or recycled. Follow this guide on how to scrap junk in Fallout 4.
How Do You scrap Junk in Fallout 4?
We will begin with the rusty automobiles, discarded metal, dead trees, and numerous other worthless items that clutter your settlements. By entering the build menu using the Workshop or View button, and then hitting R (or the corresponding console button), you can simply get rid of the majority of this (albeit you can only get rid of specific buildings). You will be given a short list of the products you obtain from it, and they will be placed directly in your workshop’s inventory.
Scrapping Weapons and Armors
Unusable weapons and armour are the second kinds of scrap. To scrap weapons and armour, you must visit the corresponding crafting station and locate the items you wish to shred on the list. Then, you can press the SCRAP button (which will be indicated at the bottom of your screen) to have your character discard the armour and weapons.
Scrapping Settlement Junk
The final type of trash that can be discarded is that discovered in your inventory under the JUNK tab of your Pip-Boy. This includes toasters, Nuka Cola bottles, beer bottles, coolant caps, and all the other worthless rubbish that is currently overflowing from your pockets. If you are anything like me (and 75% of the other Fallout 4 players out there), you hoard items in unfathomable quantities. Sure, you do not need that pack of cigarettes right now, but hey, you never know when you will need them, right? Regardless, this is trash that may truly hold you up. Not only does it use valuable inventory space, but if you are not careful, it can also impede your base-building progress.
You will need to return to one of your communities in order to dispose of this type of trash. Locate the workshop nearest you. Now press R (or whatever button your console uses for item transfers) and select the STORE ALL JUNK option. Presto. You have effectively eliminated all of your trash and discarded every useless object you possess. Now, anytime you choose to construct the next expansion of your base, you can simply open the construction menu and begin tossing down walls, since the Workshop will automatically convert your garbage into building materials.
