Some key changes to repairing and salvaging items have been implemented in the latest update for Core Keeper. Patch 0.3.3 also brings a lot of balancing improvements, quality-of-life changes, and bug fixes.

Back then, repairing items in Core Keeper requires you to use scrap parts. However, developers changed this mechanic in Patch 0.3.3. Repairing stuff now requires some of the item’s crafting materials, and the amount needed depends on the current durability of the item. For instance, you will need some copper bars if you want to fix the copper pickaxe.

To help you adjust to the change in the repair mechanic, salvaging now gives some of the item’s crafting materials back instead of the usual scrap parts.

So, what happens to your existing scrap parts now that they’re not used for repairing items anymore? Well, they have been changed into something that you can sell for a small amount of coin.
