Crafting is an important skill to master in these tough times.
To start crafting items, you will need to gather two things:
Blueprints can be discovered through a multitude of activities such as weekly PROJECTS, defeating control points, purchasing them directly from vendors, etc.
Materials can be scavenged, found at control points, living world activities, projects and boos loot.
Deconstructing unwanted equipment is also an effective way to acquire base materials.
Crafting is a great way to discover new playstyles and acquire higher quality items before they drop naturally in the open world, or fill out equipment slots that are lagging behind in power. It is also the main way for you to get your hands on weapon mods.
Crafting an item
All items can be crafted through the Crafting Station located in the Base of Operations.
Select the item you wish to craft in the right gear category to get started – you can navigate the Categories by pressing the corresponding key/control.
If you don’t have all the necessary components to craft your item, a notification will be displayed.
You can also check which resources are missing by looking at the Materials required.
Once you craft an item, you will see a pop-up with the item description and list of its randomly generated attributes.
Please note that the level of the items crafted will be based on your current Level. For instance, if you are Level 15, the Power Range of the Crafting Station will be of 15 (as shown on the first picture of this article).
