Description[edit | edit source]

Nails are resource that are used in the crafting of many different items, they can also be used as a type of ammunition, usable only by the Nailgun. They are consumed when using the nailgun as an offensive weapon (by left-clicking); upgrading/repairing a block (by right-clicking) will not consume any Nails.

When used as ammunition from a Nailgun, the amount of damage done is based in part on the quality of the Nailgun used.

Nails can be cast in a Forge, and found in various locations (most commonly found in Garage Storage). Nails can be scrapped or smelted in a Forge to produce iron.

Scrapping[edit | edit source]

Nails can be scrapped into Scrap Iron, 2 Nails are required to make 1 Scrap Iron.
