Description[edit | edit source]

Scrap Iron is a common crafting component which can be scavenged from various locations in 7 Days to Die or crafted using iron based items. Scrap Iron can also be obtained from destroying existing metal-like objects. Examples include decaying vehicle frames, air/heating vents, shed metal sheeting, metal barricaded windows, iron store shelves, metal ladders, and much more. Scrap Iron can be melted in a Forge to cast Forged Iron, or used to craft various other items. A single piece of Scrap Iron weighs 0.5 lb.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Scrap Iron can be extracted from a Forge prior to moving the forge at no loss of materials.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

You can use Scrap Iron to craft Scrap Iron Hatch which can be smelted in a forge for the 40 pts of Scrap Iron which are used to craft it. Scrap Iron Hatch will stack up to 500 therefore, you can hold 20.000 pts of Scrap Iron in a single stack for smelting purpose.
