Crafting is a skill in Days Gone that you can use to produce new items to attack opponents. They become available when you switch on the Wheel of Survival. You can select a category from it and then select the item to produce based on Crafting Recipes you already know. We’ve prepared this handy Crafting Guide to help learn all you need to know about the different items you can craft in Days Gone.
Days Gone Crafting
As previously mentioned, you can only produce items based on Crafting Recipes that obtain and if you’ve got the right Crafting Materials. Missing Crafting Materials are marked red in the Wheel of Survival.
Deacon can produce a limited number of items of the same type but you can somewhat increase your carrying capacity with the Carry That Weight skill.
Moreover, you cannot produce ammunition for a firearm or First Aid Kits. Ammo must be found in boxes or purchased from merchants but you can still craft ordinary Crossbows Bolts.
First-Aid Kits may be looted from dead enemies and you can create bandages along with healing cocktails to restore your health.
Getting Crafting Recipes
Crafting Recipes can be obtained through two methods:
- Finishing Story Missions that, sometimes, will reward you with some of them.
- Search the bunker under Ambush Camp.
