How do I trade Salvage?

You can exchange Salvage for Weapon Kits on the Trade screen, once it’s unlocked. The Trade screen is divided into three areas. On the left hand side, you can see the number of Schematics you’ve redeemed. If you’ve any Schematics that you’ve not yet redeemed, you can do this here by tapping the big green “redeem” button.

The bottom right panel shows the Kits that are available to trade, and gives a summary of which weapons they can be applied to, along with the stat boost that it grants.

Tapping on one of the Weapon Kits makes it the focus of the top right panel. This shows the Salvage cost of the Kit, and how your current collection stacks up. If you have enough of a certain type of Salvage then the number will be displayed in green, while if you still have some to collect then it will be red. Tapping on the Salvage icon will display a pop up menu, letting you know which Campaign events you can find them in. Selecting an event and tapping “GO!” will take you to the Map screen where you can enter, or raid, the event. Once you’ve met all the Salvage requirements for the level of Weapon Kit you want to obtain, tapping the “trade” button will add it to your inventory.

You can select the level of Kit you want to trade by tapping the one, two or three star buttons. Each one gives an increased stat boost, and is only available after you’ve traded the previous level.

You can see the Weapon Kits that you own, but haven’t yet equipped, in the “owned” tab of the bottom right panel.

How do I obtain Salvage?

Salvage can be discovered hidden in loot boxes around the battle arenas. Simply drive over them during combat to collect whatever’s inside. Each arena has it’s own range of Salvage, the chances of what you’ll find inside influenced by scarcity value.

You can see what Salvage can be found on a particular arena by checking out the info on the Preview Pane on the right hand side of the Map screen.

You can also collect salvage by “Raiding” an event in Campaign mode. When you have achieved a three star rating on any event, spending a Raid token allows you to instantly receive a random amount and type of Salvage from that arena, without having to enter the Battle itself.

Salvage can also be found in Mystery Boxes, available to purchase in the Dealer, and by direct purchase in the Fleet PvP Store. There are also Salvage perks and bundles available in the Vault as bonus items with Gold and Cash purchases.

What is Salvage?

In the post-apocalyptic world of Auto Warriors many everyday items that we take for granted now have a much higher value. You’d be surprised at what you can trade for a few rolls of clean toilet paper and a bottle of drinkable water!

Visiting the Trader screen in the Dealer allows you to exchange items from your Salvage collection for special stat-enhancing Weapon Kits.

There are three different tiers of salvage, rated by their scarcity – Junk, Common and Rare. You can also discover Schematics in amongst the Salvage, which enable new Weapon Kits to be traded once redeemed. Additionally, you will sometimes find cogs, nuts and bolts in boxes, that can be traded for Cash.

There’s no limit to how much you can own, and it all comes in useful at the Trader, so collect as much as you can!  You can see the Salvage you own by visiting your Profile, accessible by tapping on your avatar in the Front End.

What do the Weapon Stats mean?

Every weapon has a number of stats that reflect their in-battle performance.

  • Damage – the amount of Health or Armour Points damage that will be inflicted with a successful hit.
  • Range – the fire arc range as represented in game.
  • Accuracy – the percentage chance of a successful hit.
  • Weight – an important stat to keep an eye on when upgrading and building your car load outs.
  • Ammo – the total ammo capacity that the weapon can take into battle.
  • Fire Rate – the number of shots that will be fired in a battle, per second.
  • Upgrades – the number of upgrades that the weapon can have performed on it.
  • DPS – taking into account all of the other stats, the maximum damage per second that the weapon can inflict.
  • Value – for weapons that you don’t own, this is how much it will cost to buy, while with weapons that you own this is the sale price that the Dealer will give you for it.

Not every weapon has all of the above stats. More details on stats and their icons can be found by tapping the “i” information button in the Dealer.

What happens if an upgrade makes my car invalid?

Sometimes you may start an upgrade that will finish after you’ve left the game. If this upgrade increases the weight of the item then you may return to the game and find that your car has become invalid without you realising it. On entering the game on your return, a pop-up message will inform you that you’re car is invalid, and you’ll have to select a different, valid, car build or enter the Workshop to change your load out before entering any events.

How do I upgrade an item?

Select the item in the Workshop, and then tap the Upgrade button. This brings up the Upgrade pop-up, that displays all of the current stat values, any Weapon Kits installed and the number of Upgrades remaining.

A button next to each stat displays how much upgrading that stat will cost in Cash and also how long the upgrade will take. Tapping this button shows how the upgrade will affect your item’s stats. You can stack up multiple upgrades by tapping these buttons before confirming them. Once the Upgrade has begun, it will take the time displayed to complete. You can finish these Upgrades immediately by either tapping the small button next to the stat, or if you wish to finish all active Upgrades immediately then by tapping the large “Finish Now” button.
