Salvage Fields MapIconScrap.png are Resource Fields where Players can manually collect Salvage, which can be refined into Basic Materials, Diesel and Explosive materials at a Refinery. Mining at a Salvage Field produces raw resources faster than automated Salvage Mines.

Their locations are always shown on the map, they are randomly selected by the game at the start of each war and doesn't change for the whole war.

Salvage Fields cannot be destroyed.


A Salvage Field is composed of a large decorative center piece that can't be mined and smaller salvage nodes strewn around it that you mine. Salvage nodes are mined by hitting them with a Hammer, Sledge Hammer, or Harvester (hold Left Click). The Salvage Field starts with a reserve of 250 nodes. When a node on the field is harvested, a node from the reserve is spawned in after a few seconds. The amount of nodes left in the field's reserve can be seen by hovering your mouse over a field's icon on the map (only if your faction owns the Region Zone it's in) or by pressing E on a field's large center piece. Once fully depleted, the field replenishes after 80-140 real life minutes (depends on player population).

When mined, a node splits into two smaller pieces which themselves split into even tinier pieces. Fully mining one node yields 200 salvage by default, meaning an entire field is worth more than 50,000 salvage.

Resource Transport[]

Collected salvage has no direct use, it must first be transported to a Refinery to be refined.

Resource Containers can be brought by Flatbed, Barge, or Freighter then unloaded with a Crane at a resource field to be manually filled with raw resources. The container can hold way more resources than Trucks.

High Yield Nodes[]

Rarely a Field spawns a High Yield resource node. They are identified by a bright light on top of them and yield a much higher amount of resources for the same mining effort

Aluminum and Iron[]

When mining Salvage, every time a node splits it has a chance to drop Iron or Aluminum nodes instead of Salvage. These nodes are mined just like Salvage. A field can only drop either Aluminum or Iron, one of the two resources is picked at random every time the field is cleared and replenishes. Those two resources are used for technology research.
