How To Make workbench

What You’ll Need:

  • 20x Wood
  • 5x Nails

How To Make It: In the workbench menu, select a Workbench Plan and confirm that you have all listed resources. Once it’s built, place the placed plan on the ground. Select it in your inventory and right click to rotate or hold ALT to change its orientation. Items that can be crafted at a workbench are highlighted in green. Ammo is color-coded by ammo type (i.e., 9mm is blue). Craft items one at a time or all at once with SHIFT+Click . Here’s how to craft various types of weapons and tools, along with some other objects you might want to create. For everything else, just select the workbench plan to find out what you need.

Weapons & Tools:

Nails (5 units) – To make a weapon or tool, hold SHIFT then click to bring up the crafting menu. Select Nails . Craft either 1 nail or 5 nails . Note that if you select an object in your inventory and right-click on it, it will show up as something like “Tool Hammer 9mm” — this is its condition when crafted. An undamaged tool will be made in working order with 100% durability; however, damaged tools require more resources to craft than fresh ones. This goes for weapons too! For example, a Pistol uses 5x Nail s , but a Pistol that’s already damaged might require 8x Nails to repair (or more). If you don’t know what an object’s condition is, hold ALT and right-click to see its stats.

Tools:  Cable – To make a tool, hold SHIFT then click on the Workbench Plan . Craft either 1 Cable or 5 Cable s .

Place down a Workbench and craft either 1 Hammer or 3 Hammers . Craft 5 Machete s, then right-click on the crafted Machete to equip it. Hold SHIFT and right-click to use this weapon with a target (just like the Pistol). The machete has unlimited durability; however, each hit dealt will damage its condition.
