Now back to learning about Scrunk, specifically scrap!


Scrap can be found all across the world in piles. The easiest (and most painless) way to acquire scrap is finding a scrap pile and scavenging it.

Scrap piles

Enemies drop scrap

Another way you can acquire scrap is from hostile mechs. These are neutral PvE threats in the form of skitterers that will attempt to swarm you and will do damage to you if they get close enough


Watch out for blast zones

Blast zones are an event in which a number of explosions will happen within a certain radius. Each explosion has a chance to drop a scrap pile which can then be looted. The explosions will kill you if you're too close so a handy marker will appear on your mini map as well as a shadow of the radius to make it obvious you shouldn't be standing there.

Why do I need scrap?

Scrap is used to craft all player deployables and items. Open your inventory and you'll see a crafting menu. Hovering over each item will show you how much scrap is required to craft it.


Of course you can also loot scrap off dead players. Make sure not to carry around too much with you or else the enemy will definitely use your scrap against you.

Stay up to date

That's it! You should now be well equipped to deal with everything the world of Scrunk throws at you. Check out the Scrunk website and make sure to wishlist it on Steam to be notified of when it releases July 12th!
