Scavenged Parts are scattered throughout the game. These items are needed to use for customizing or upgrading your weapons at the Workbench.

Scavenged Parts can be found anywhere in the game. Be sure to explore and check every corner of all the areas if possible. They are most commonly seen on top of shelves or on table with nearby tools.

If you turn on High Contrast Mode from the accesibility settings (or by swiping left on the touchpad), you will be able to easily spot anything in the area that can be interacted with, allowing you to easily find and pick up any parts that are lying around.

Enhanced Listen Mode

    • I’m more of a stealth player so I didn’t enjoy the boss fight in the hospital. One touch and you’re dead, that’s not enjoyable or realistic. Might as well run outside and kick a bear. I’d get the same thing happen, dead. Too much story in this game as well, I feel like it’s hours of videos that takes away from the game play. Just give me the details and move it along. I don’t need to know who’s screwing who.
