    • Heavy Vehicle Upgrade Kits (- 5 Scraps of Circuitry, -100 Parts, -4 Materials)


  • All crafting components except for the Blood Plague Sample can be found by searching inside various containers that are scattered across the world of State of Decay 2.
  • The amount of Craftable Items scattered across the world is not unlimited and they do not respawn, however some of them can be crafted and others can be purchased from merchants. For very long playthroughs it is recommended to choose a Trader as a Leader to get an inexhaustible source of Craftable Items as they are relatively cheap to buy from Parts Traders that come to the Trade Depot.
