Allows disassembling items you don't need to get their components.
– Blueprint description

Description

"Allows disassembling items you don't need to get their components."

The Recycler is a Workstation built at the Home base.

The Recycler added to the game for the reason: It will disassemble items when you want to get their components back. When the Recycler was added, the Gunsmith Bench was temporary disabled.

"Let’s start with the house. We’ve added a recycler that processes accumulated waste on your bases. We understand the temptation to loot everything that caught the eyes of experienced survivors and how hard it is not to turn your base into a dump. The very thought of throwing even completely worthless stuff, obtained in battles with zombies makes the heart ache. The recycler will prevent you from making terrible sacrifices and allow you to take unnecessary things apart to get useful resources and even rare items. The function of stripping weapons for parts is now also transferred to the recycler, since the Gunsmith workbench is temporarily unavailable due to changing its functions." (from DevBlog 04/26: Update 1.8.2.)

"The magic of a texture atlas comes into effect!"

"This workbench will help you to to craft something useful. As you know, to craft something needful you need to disassemble something needless first."

"If you guessed we posted a recycler texture, you were completely right." (from https://twitter.com/LastDaySurvival)

Crafting Requirements

Blueprints 48 Recycler.png

Unlock:

  • Level: 32 Unlearned recipes.png
  • Craft Points: 2 Craft Point Icon.png

Materials:

Furniture:

  • Placement: Plank Floor (lvl.2)
  • Max: 1
  • Grid Size: 1x1
  • Orientation: 2 positions

Usage

The Recycler is used to disassemble things you don't want to get their components. But, not everything can be recycled.

When you try to recycle an item, it will take some time. The time varies between 10 m 01 s, and 1 h.

The Recycler can now be used to get components used for Weapon Modifications at the Gunsmith Bench.

Skills

"Item disassembling raises your recycling skill. The higher the skill, the more chances to get rare resources"

Recycler2.png

Recycling Skills has 6 skills, and they are:

  • Clothes
  • Melee Weapons
  • Other
  • Mechanics
  • Electronics
  • Firearms

Recycling Skills levels cannot reach 51 (Stop in level 50)

(Remember: Tools <like Hatchet, Pickaxe, Iron Hatchet, Iron Pickaxe>, when recycling you get skill Melee Weapon.)

Note: In addition to the variable types and quantities of outputs, recycled objects add different amounts toward their respective levels. Below is a list.

Outputs & Percentages

There are currently one to three outputs available from each item recycled. The percentage rate of likelihood for each output's drop increases as the relevant level increases, as described below:

  • Output 1 items gain 1% every three levels.
  • Output 2 items gain 1% every five levels.
  • Output 3 items gain 1% every ten levels.
  • Output 4

The outputs increased until you reach level 50. At level 50 You have an 89% chance of receiving of output 1, 15% chance of receiving output 2, and a 5% chance or receiving output 3.

Some Output 1 items on certain recycled item such as Beer has the percentage of Output 2, and in that case, Output 2 and 3 will have the percentage of the higher Output level.

  • Some of them has double Output 1, 2, or 3's therefore their percentage gain will be the same as it levels up.

Items with Durability such as Melee Weapons, Firearms, and Clothes affect its output percentages.

  • The durability (in %) is multiplied against the % value displayed in the recycler
  • Example: a 50% durability AK will only have a 5% chance for a blueprint even though the recycler says it has a 10% chance for a blueprint.

For Firearms, these are most of the Percentage for the 4 Outputs (percentage for blank areas are the same for the ones before them).

Recyclable Additions

With Beta v.1.8.5, the following items were added to the list of recyclables:

Not Recyclable

Recycling

On the Recycler, a Recycler can be recycled into a Bolts, Oak Plank, and Aluminium Bar in 10 minutes and 1 second at an appropriate level of Other recycling skill.

Tips and Trivia

  • Introduced in Beta v.1.8.2
  • Changed design in Beta v.1.11.4
  • Note that when the output stack is at maximum for that item type, recycling stops--for example, when scrap metal produced reaches 50 in the slot.
  • The most efficient way to maximize high-quality, rare outputs is to first increase the relevant Recycling Skill level with items in that category with the least needed output(s). For example, Light Bulbs level up Electronics (outputting only Scrap Metal at the early, lower drop percentages) without wasting the possibility of Electronic Circuits from items like Mobile Phones or USB Drives that will have better odds at higher levels.
  • You should recycle the melee weapons at low durability. Recycle guns when they are in low durability for raising recycler level only. Recycle guns at high durability for better output chance. Gun output percentages are multiplied against remaining durability. 10% chance of a blueprint on a 50% durability gun = 5% chance of blueprint.
  • Electronics: Recycle Expensive Watches, Dish Antenna, Light Bulb, and Batteries to level up this is at least 20-30 to have a 2-3% chance at the last items. At this point you will want to put in Signal Amplifier, Mobile Phone, and USB Drive in for a chance to get an Electronic Circuit.
  • Mechanics: Really not much to know here. just scrap anything for metal and spare parts. One tip i have though is save ATV Gas Tank, many people have been theorizing they will salvage for fuel later on in the future so we would recommend saving these for awhile. *Alternate opinion* For now they are the fastest item to level recycler, they drop frequently, don’t stack, and have junk outputs, perfect for leveling Mechanics so you can recycle Truck wheels, ATV wheels ATV Transmissions (if you have alot), and Truck blades for steel bars once you’ve maxed out this category.
  • You won't loose the recycle levels if you delete the current recycler then place a new one.
