Details Edit

The steel making furnace is a special purposed furnace used only for smelting scrap into steel.

As with every other construction it cannot be moved, traded or built anywhere else (Cities, wasteland or water) but on the character home.

The steelmaking perk can come in useful if you are trying to smelt lots of steel for things like the BelAZ.

Notes Edit

The steelmaking furnace requires a lot of expensive and heavy materials to build but it is necessary for gathering all the steel needed for the moving town quest and crafting superior equipment.

  • Build at main base preferably
  • Use the vehicle with the maximum workload at your disposition, and load it with materials until you reach 99% weight to save fuel and repair materials.
  • Gathering cement (50 cements weights 1 250 kg) :
    1. Looting: Search every construction site for bags of cement.
    2. Trading : Trade 1 Plastic explosives for 1 cement in Chelyabinsk Survivor Camp
  1. Gathering automotive batteries :
    1. Trading : craft 50 whiskey from the corn and then trade it for 1 battery in Irkutsk Survivor Camp.
    2. Crafting: kill bees near UFA, craft Sulfuric acid, then craft automotive batteries from broken batteries.
