Can we just agree that metal spare parts need either a loot chance buff or a craft?

1 : Anonymous2021/12/29 12:33 ID: rr76rs

Title. 300K+ for one, and you need like a dozen for the hideout. And you can't find them anywhere. Even the places where it supposedly spawns, no luck.

2 : Anonymous2021/12/29 16:49 ID: hqff2ap

Can we add green batteries to this list too lol. I haven’t seen one of those yet this wipe.

I’ve found more gpus than metal parts and gbat’s combined.

ID: hqfsg01

700K+ for a green batt. What the fuck?

ID: hqgmiku

I have like 8 found in raid I didn't think they were going for that much holy shit

ID: hqgrios

I’m the idiot that forgot to type enough 0’s so I sold a green battery for 65k…..

ID: hqfqn6s

Where did you find your GPUs? I need one more for the quest.

ID: hqfwzl8

They have added them back to PC block loot too

ID: hqft4gs

Found one in Techlight, one in a cache, and my last one I got from finishing the task Scout.

iirc, there's 2 tasks that each reward you with a found in raid GPU

ID: hqfxmnm

One in a pc, one inside a gym bag on customs, 2 in tech stores on interchange, and one from Santa (I gave him a gas analyzer, guess he knows they’re as rare as we all do lmao)

ID: hqfy7u1

Dude I literally watched my friend get a GPU from Santa on Interchange last night. Absolutely insane lol.

He threw down like a box of PS and got a GPU

ID: hqfz6wx

I would just do scab runs on interchange and you’ll find one eventually I found a meta strat for it. Just come in through main and go second floor then loot the red thec store, go downstairs loot green store then go down the hall to the left to though oli till you see 2 double doors in there there are 3 rooms with computers with possible GPU spawns then exit though warehouse to emercom

ID: hqfymzd

Customs computers have them frequently

ID: hqg5af4

I got a GPU from the 2 story house on lighthouse 2nd floor there's a really decent tech spawn by the room directly in front of the stairs around the desk.

ID: hqg1bk1

What's silly is that the barters stayed the same. 2 green batts for a Bitcoin lol.
I've said it many times before, bsg need a data analyst who looks at economy data all day.

ID: hqfzv5k

I found one on a Scav run pre 15... And it was the one thing I decided to sell without checking the flea price. Got a clean 15k from Therapist, very cool

ID: hqgf2m1

Customs, warehouse 3 shelves, found 4 or 5 there this wipe

ID: hqgejia

same, found 5 GPUs, 5 LEDx, 0 Green bats, 2 metal spare parts

3 : Anonymous2021/12/29 12:36 ID: hqej5gh

I dont even know where to find them . Same withere nixxors this wipe. Been a crafting machine . But found 3 gas analyzers, 3 raids in a row. Lol

ID: hqfh67y

I will say, I have been crafting a lot more this wipe as a result. Which I kind of like. Feel like I'm getting use out of the hideout, and the generator more this wipe.

But I agree. Would be nice to craft as a means of multitasking, instead of it feeling like the only means of acquiring what I need.

ID: hqfrx4s

At least with Nixorrs you can craft them easily

ID: hqft5jk

True. Blows my mind why they are 70k on flea

ID: hqejn50

Nixxors are on interchange in the 3 tech stores frequently. I've found 1 metal part on a crate on the beach on lighthouse.

ID: hqg3yw5

All my past wipes, I used to run drawers to get most of my hideout loot, but this wipe has been terrible overall.

I didn't find a single Classic Matches for 14 levels and tens of scav runs; Over 15 runs of woods Outpost to get a toothpaste (for lavatory level 1); Lightbulbs seem to be rarer too.

On the brightside, I found my gas analyzers pretty quick.

The item bloat is getting really annoying (AGAIN).

ID: hqfjv8p

Found two of my metal parts in a toolbox on reserve and a bag on reserve lol

ID: hqfv3vt

Definitely don’t check all the shelves in Oli, please. It’s the only place I’ve found the metal parts.

4 : Anonymous2021/12/29 12:43 ID: hqejq9d

I found 4 in 2 raids back to back, and then not a single one since lol..

5 : Anonymous2021/12/29 13:47 ID: hqeqb9i

I found one in a technical supply crate yesterday on Factory. Not saying they don't need a buff, just saying that they do exist in technical supply crates.

6 : Anonymous2021/12/29 16:37 ID: hqfd4r8

What is with BSG and fucking up these loot spawns for necessary items? Why not just keep them as they were before…

7 : Anonymous2021/12/29 17:42 ID: hqfnbby

I just love when they change things like this a week and a half into wipe. So all the hardcore players zoom past the upgrades then nerf the hell out of it for the average player.

8 : Anonymous2021/12/29 13:45 ID: hqeq3u8

I found a few on oli shelves, where bolts and nuts spawn I think.

9 : Anonymous2021/12/29 17:27 ID: hqfkymp

The problem with Metal sape parts is that they were introduced weeks after wipe, no lifers skipped this step and didn ´t need them in their hideout upgrades. Now, the rest of us need to farm those or buy them for 300k+ on flea. I think that if BSG want´s to add new items in the game, they should do it at the start so everybody plays by the same rules..

ID: hqfz0g9

You have to remember its the no-lifers who are actually selling those 🙂

I agree with you, but we are the beta testers for this game.... BSG clearly cares more about the streamers than your casual player.

10 : Anonymous2021/12/29 16:09 ID: hqf8y4f

Just found them today at the loot tree near the old gas station on customs. Am I Lucky that I took them with me, even while I still don’t know what this is used for^

11 : Anonymous2021/12/29 21:14 ID: hqgk9wl

Just watch a stream for 22 hours. You might get one as your legendary drop. LOL

12 : Anonymous2021/12/29 15:40 ID: hqf4qsw

People who sell them for 300k dont look at the fee.

ID: hqfkfrg

Because they aren’t like Batteries. I looked at how they were at 300,000 and it still had a 150000 profit

ID: hqfgjqp

don't even know what it is but if it sells....worth.

300k of flea rep is 300k worth of flea rep

ID: hqflt7o

Yuuuup, big ass fee counts towards the rep too, even better.

13 : Anonymous2021/12/29 12:44 ID: hqejvuq

I think it might be an intentional thing.

The item has low supply (recently introduced + people need it for themselves so they keep it + low spawn rate) The item has high demand (it is a requirement, so people want to buy it) The Flea market has a somewhat natural price progression built in, as people's utility calculation changes based on which hideout upgrades they want. Once the demand reaches that inflection point, prices will drop.

Tarkov has an actual simulated economy, and I hope to see economics do their thing for metal spare parts in the future. Messing with the variables this early on instead of waiting for market action might not be ideal.

ID: hqf95e6

They question is why they also added metal parts to various hideout boxes craft, making them useless.

ID: hqfsvyz

same with all the other things that are mostly only good for hideout. eventually, like a month or two from now, everyone will have their hideout built, they will fall closer to their vendor price and the craft will help them keep value.

ID: hqgclt1

Stop advocating for excessive artificial scarcity, you nasty ecconomist, you.

14 : Anonymous2021/12/29 16:39 ID: hqfdfr8

I got my first one from Santa yesterday alongside some Whisky after dropping him a few bits <3

15 : Anonymous2021/12/29 17:08 ID: hqfhzfh

I’ve found metal spare parts everywhere. Can’t find Nixxors anywhere though.

ID: hqgqyb2

I'd reccomend unlocking the WiFi camera purchase from mechanic and crafting those at workbench.

16 : Anonymous2021/12/29 17:44 ID: hqfnlkb

Just found 2 in a single tool box. Sold them for 250K each and then got a items moving error and lost the 500K plus the metal Parts were still gone.

17 : Anonymous2021/12/29 18:50 ID: hqfxzbj

I'd just like to say I bought 2 metal parts from max fence last night for 7k each, the max trade tab can be like winning the lotto

18 : Anonymous2021/12/29 19:54 ID: hqg7sf2

What about the military hoses, also I had to fork over 1m for some floppy disc for int 3

19 : Anonymous2021/12/29 20:13 ID: hqgat3j

I’ve found plenty on interchange and in jackets

20 : Anonymous2021/12/29 20:49 ID: hqgggik

I've found 2 GPUs.

I've found 0 metal spare parts
I've found 0 sewing kits
I've found 0 green batteries

That is all.
