Scraps are uncommon collectibles in Raft. They are used as a crafting material for many different items including the essentials, like the Hook, Metal Axe, Metal Fishing Rod, etc.

In the alpha version of the game, it was very easy to find Scrap, but now as the game is in its early access stage, there have been a few changes to the rarity of Scrap.

Scraps are now more difficult to find. This guide will cover the entirety of where to find Scraps as of the latest update of Raft.

Where To Find Scrap In Raft

There are several ways you can get Scrap in Raft. The easiest method is to collect Barrels. Barrels often contain pieces of Scrap, especially early on in the game. Barrels can be found floating around in the ocean, all you have to do is grab them with your hook and bring it towards you.

If you want to go all-out with this method, there is one thing you can do to get the most out of it. You need to craft a Simple Collection Net to collect the floating items. It’s more efficient to place the nets at the two sides/edges of your raft and let them do their job.

Vacated Rafts
You can also find a few Scraps inside Vacated Rafts. This isn’t the best go-to method to find Scrap though, as Vacated Rafts are relatively harder to find and also provide a low amount of Scrap.

The most efficient method to find Scrap is to search around the reefs of Islands. They are found in greater amounts underwater. Head towards an island that you find with your Sail, then Anchor your raft to explore the island’s depths.

This method can be more fruitful but is also quite dangerous. You’ll be hunted by a shark every time you try to go underwater. It’s quite hard to keep running away from the shark and be on the lookout for Scrap in the process, which is why it is recommended to either kill or distract the shark.

Best Way To Farm Scrap In Raft

The Vasagatan shipwreck is the best place to farm a ton of Scrap. You can also exploit the area to farm infinite Scrap for as long as you want.

Vasagatan is located near the Radio Tower and is where you find the important Engine and Steering Wheel blueprints.

You will find a lot of Scrap outside as well as inside the many rooms of the shipwreck. When you have cleaned out the area, sail on your raft to reach a distance of about 3000m. Then return to the Vasagatan shipwreck to find all the Scrap respawned.

You can continue using this exploit until your inventory is full.

Another little trick to farm a lot of Scrap is to have several collection nets on your raft instead of just one or two. This will ensure that you collect several barrels within the hour which may include Scrap. Just make sure to empty your nets every hour.
