Description

Salvaging materials is a critical part of the crafting system in Firefall. At the bottom of your inventory, there is a "Salvage" button. To Salvage any item, open the "Salvage Bar" and add items to discard. Depending on the rarity, tier and build of the item, different amounts of Research points, crystite and resources will be generated. This is the best way to get Research points and maintain a manageable inventory.

Most items in the inventory can be salvaged. This includes:

Suggested Salvage Best types
Weapons Any weapons that are not being used, cannot be sold in the Marketplace, or are a lower level
Modules Any modules that cannot be used, or sold. Also ones that are for different Battleframes or are lower level.
Ablities Abilites of different Battleframes, secondary abilities that are ignored, etc.
Consumables Consumables that will never see use. Example: get rid of those one-use LGVs if you have a permanent ride.
And most importantly... Salvage, of course! See below for more information

Research

The Research Tree can be found at the Molecular Printer. This tree is used to upgrade the amount of equipment that is allowed to be manufactured. Example: To obtain a level 30 Recon - R36 Assault Rifle through crafting, you will have to upgrade your way up the tree to get the recipes.

The currency of researching is Research Points and crystite.

As previously mentioned, salvaging materials is the best way to gain Research points.

Resources

There are 2 types of salvage material drops; normal drops and legacy drops.
