What Is A Muddy Scrap Pile In Valheim
As the name implies, a Muddy Scrap Pile is a deposit of mud and scraps that can be found in the Swamp Biome. You can see one of them below.
These deposits may become annoying at first, mainly because you’ll have to remove them in order to progress through the Sunken Crypts.
But in fact, the Muddy Scrap Piles are quite useful as they provide a lot of Valheim Resources, one of them being the Scrap Iron.
Thus, whenever you need Iron, you’ll need to find a Scrap Pile.
A Muddy Scrap Pile in Valheim contains the following crafting materials and items:
- Scrap Iron – Used at a Smelter to craft Iron
- Leather Scraps – Common crafting materials used to craft equipment and build structures
- Withered Bones – Quest items used to summon Bonemass. Ten of them are required
Where To Find The Valheim Scrap Piles
The Valheim Scrap Piles can be found only in the Swamp Biome, and most of them are underground.
They are pretty easy to identify, but in case you need help you can see an example below.
When inside a Sunken Crypt the Scrap Piles must be mined in order to discover new rooms. Simply look for them on the walls, and start digging to advance through the dungeons.
Additionally, you’ll be able to find these piles outside, but keep in mind that there are two requirements here:
- First, you’ll need to remain in the Swamp
- Second, you need to get the Wishbone which is an item dropped by Bonemass
With the Wishbone equipped you can find Muddy Scrap Piles, Silver Veins, or Buried Treasures.
