Crafting is the part and parcel of surviving in Dying Light.
It allows you to make Customized Weapons, Throwable Weapons, Medkits, and more. In order to craft something, you will need a recipe (called Blueprint) and crafting components. Both these things can be acquired scattered throughout the open-world.
