Overview[edit | edit source]

Harvesting is a new mechanic in 7 Days to Die that was introduced in A13. You harvest an item by facing it, and then left-clicking with an appropriate tool. It is similar to smashing an item for scrap, except for the following:

  • In most cases, instead of destroying the item, you are "taking it apart".
  • When the correct tool is used, harvesting always yields more loot than destroying the item by other means.
  • While harvesting, you gradually receive loot, while the item's Durability decreases. (Whereas scrapping doesn't yield any loot until the item is completely destroyed.)
  • When completely harvested, the item disappears. Some items yield "bonus loot" when completely harvested.
