Defiance Salvaging Tips
Early on in the game you won’t need to worry about salvaging too much, but as you progress and want to mod your weapons it’s a good idea to brush up on the basics. If you are brand new to the Defiance MMO you can read our beginners guide.
We will post a more in-depth crafting guide at a later date but this post will cover the basics.
It’s a pretty easy process and there are a few things that are worth bearing in mind.
Not all items can be salvaged at the beginning of the game so don’t worry if you don’t see the option on all items. All you need to do to get started is go to the loadout screen and then go to Modifications at the top of that screen.
Select the item you want to salvage and then Click on “Breakdown to resources” – this will give you the Ark resources you need to add modification slots to weapons.
Mod slots come in four different types:Barrel, Magazine, Sight and Stock.
Mods are also restricted on what weapon they can be used on. So if you end up with a mod for a sniper rifle and you know that you’re not a sniper or will never use it – it’s a good idea to break it down to resources.
Another thing worth bearing in mind is that not all weapons can have mods. So you might want to change your weapons to ones that can have mods and make some basic weapons more powerful.
When you hover over a mod, you’ll get a tool-tip that will tell you a bit about it and then you can choose whether you want to hold on to it or break it down to resources.
Another option for mods that you will not use is of course to sell them – either way, free up those inventory slots from mods that you won’t use and start making some awesome modes for weapons that you will!
