Scrap is a resource in Astroneer that can be traded in to obtain other resources.
Source[edit | edit source]
Each item shredded will yield different amounts of scrap, and any partially complete stack of scrap will remain in the Shredder until enough scrap has been collected to create an entire nugget of scrap. One full nugget is comprised of 50 Cones. When a nugget of Scrap is complete, it will be stored on the same vehicle or platform as the shredder, assuming that there is enough storage space for it. If there is not any storage for the shredder, the Shredder will stop operating untill the scrap has been removed.
Scrap may be easily obtained through the use of the Soil Centrifuge. Gathering enough Soil to turn into Clay, the player may smelt it into Ceramic and craft Drill Mod 1, which may then be shredded into Scrap. Doing this method will yield 3 Scrap for 2 canisters of Soil.
Currently the most return on value for scrap from soil is the Winch. You can purchase 4 Wolframite for 6 Scrap and smelt it into Tungsten, then use 1 Soil to make 4 Resin and 1 Soil to make 4 Organic, convert these into 4 Rubber, then create 4 Winch and shred them. This will give you 10 Scrap which is a net profit of 4 Scrap and the input was 2 Soil, more Scrap per Soil than the Drill Mod 1 mentioned above, but consumes more power and more time.

Uses[edit | edit source]
Scrap is the currency resource, used with the Trade Platform, to obtain other resources. The ratio of scrap to resource varies on the rarity of the resource being traded for.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Vehicles and Extra Large items (Except Shelter) can be blown up using Dynamite to receive debris small enough to fit into one of the three shredders.
- Dynamite, Fireworks, Resources, Item Plinths, Leveling Block and Terrain Anchor are not shreddable.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Before the release of the Extra Large Shredder, many of the larger broken objects were marked as Detritus. This was due to the size limitations for items accepted by the largest shredder at the time, the Large Shredder. Now, many of these objects are shreddable, and have been reclassified and marked as Debris rather than Detritus.
- Before Patch 1.9.8, Platforms are not shreddable.
