One of the major mechanics of Firefall is the crafting system. Crafting is the process of using resources, crystite, and other crafting components to create equipment and other items.

Crafting can be performed at the Molecular Printer, which can be found in many larger outposts/towns/POI's.

Printer Operations

At the Molecular Printer there are 3 basic operations that can be performed in Manufacturing slots.



Manufacturing Job allow ARES operators to produce a wide variety of weapons and equipment for use in the field.

Recipes in Manufacturing can be learned by Researching them or buying specialty recipes from reputation vendors, and will reveal many more construction options.



Refining Jobs are a critical part of building new gear. Any Raw Resource that is that is gathered in the field must be Refined before it's able to be used to Manufacture something. The refining of raw resources produces materials that can be used in manufacturing as well as sometimes a small amount of crystite.

Research Jobs are important for dedicated Manufacturers. Learning new methods and techniques allows ARES Operators to build better and more advanced weaponry and equipment - critical in the fight against Chosen. In order to manufacture weapons, abilities or equipment one must first research the appropriate technology. For example, to build an Arsenal's Light Machine Gun one must first go to the research tab and weapons and then research their level appropriate LMG before they can use the recipe in the the manufacturing tab. Research for recipes is currently grouped by level and rarity. In order to research a higher level or more rare equipment one must first research the item's lower levels and rarities.
