Raft: How to use the metal detector
The goal of Raft, a survival game, is to stay alive while adrift on a raft in the middle of the ocean by scavenging for food, constructing defenses, and fighting off dangerous monsters. The metal detector is essential because it can be used to unearth treasures buried far below sea level. Here, we’ll go through the basics of operating the metal detector and the most effective methods for gathering materials in a Raft.
How to use the metal detector in Raft Blueprint
Discovering and making the metal detector’s blueprint is the first step in utilizing it. Players can find the blueprint on Caravan Island by following the blue pipe to the ocean floor, where they can then access the surrounding blue container crate and pull it out. It is possible to make a metal detector with 12 pieces of plastic, 6 pieces of scrap metal, and 1 battery. The metal detector, once fashioned, may be installed in the first available slot. If there are any metal items in the neighborhood, the metal detector will detect them. As the player approaches the thing being searched for, the metal detector’s beeping and flashing lights will speed up and become more intense if an object is identified.
Instructions for using a metal detector
The metal detector may only be used if it is physically in the player’s hand. To initiate scanning, the player must get within range and then press and hold the “use” button. The player is free to roam while they scan, but must remain inside the metal detector’s effective range for any finds. When the metal detector picks up an item, it will make a noise. The map will then allow the player to get to the spot where the item is located.
The metal detector’s versatility makes it useful for locating materials other than metal. An example of buried treasure that can double as raft decor and be unearthed with a metal detector is a tiki head; other examples include a pile of junk and a suitcase that are worth excavating because they contain fairly valuable things like iron and titanium; a metal detector is an excellent source of titanium. Combining the metal detector’s use with that of other instruments is still another tactic you might employ. The user can use the metal detector to find hidden items and then use the grappling hook to get them back. If you need to retrieve anything from deep water or anywhere else that’s out of reach, this could be your best bet.
To sum up, the metal detector is a powerful instrument in Raft that can be used to unearth commodities that have been buried deep below the waves. The best way to utilize the metal detector is to make one, mount it on the raft, and scan the area while keeping the raft in shallow water and moving. The metal detector may be used in conjunction with other items, such as the grappling hook, to boost the player’s chances of discovering useful items. It takes time and effort, but players may learn to utilize the metal detector to help them live on the raft.
