Nails are components used in crafting and carpentry.

Usage

Carpentry

Nails are a required component for most carpentry recipes, most of which also require a hammer.

They are required for barricading doors and windows, and to hang sheet ropes.

Weapons

Both the baseball bat and plank can be improved by combining with nails, making them deal slightly more damage and turning them into the spiked baseball bat and spiked plank respectively. These can then also be repaired with more nails when they break.

Boxes

100 nails can be consolidated into a box of nails, which is helpful for organizational purposes, and reduces the stack weight by 70% (0.3 for x100 nails vs 1.0 unboxed). The nails must be unboxed in order to be used.

Crafting

Nails can be used in the following recipes:

Distribution

Nails can be found in hardware stores, factories (specifically logging factories), tool sheds, garages, and various other storage locations.

Nails can be obtained by dismantling various wooden furniture. The amount of nails obtained is dependent on your carpentry level and which item of furniture is being dismantled. Different pieces of furniture require different tools to dismantle.

The loot distributions for nail boxes can be found in the table(s) below.
