One of the most important materials in Cycle Frontier’s early game is scrap metal, as it is often used for crafting. But it’s not as easy to find as it may seem, despite being a common material.
Where to Find Scrap Metal in Cycle Frontier
Scrap Metal is one of the materials associated with the Korolev Faction, meaning it’ll mostly spawn in the Korolev Structures on the map. Of course, like any material in the game, the amounts and placement of Scrap Metal are randomized with every game, but outside of containers, only Korolev structures have a chance of including this particular item. But it also has a very small chance to spawn in every container in the game.
Searching Korolev’s Structures
The map above shows you which structures are owned by Korolev. Out of these, East Collection Point usually has the most scrap metal, but all the others should have plenty too. East Collection Point is also considered a low danger zone, so you can safely traverse this part of the map, even if you’ve just started the game.
Three out of four structures feature special puzzles that give you access to more loot, including materials. These structures are the Dig Site, the Water Facility, and the East Collection Point. The puzzles are fairly simple, requiring you to bring a few batteries to their designated spot, and the amount of loot rewarded is worth the trouble.
Terraria: Labor of Love | Shimmer Guide
One of the things that stand out in the Labor of Love Content is the Shimmer Liquid which has now become available early in the game.
In old versions of Terraria, the Shimmer liquid is part of the end game content. That means you will have access to it only when you’ve progressed further into the game.
In the Labor of Love content, the Aether Mini Biome is randomly spawned into the world and all you need to do is look for it.
Depending on how fast you can dig, you will be able to gain access to the Aether Mini Biome early in the game which opens up different item conversions which we will be discussing further on.
In this guide, we will show you the different uses for the Shimmer liquid in Terraria 1.4.4.
Labor of Love Shimmer Guide in Terraria
The shimmer liquid affects items in the game in different ways. Items that are crafted from different materials will sometimes disassemble when thrown into the liquid.
Throw items into the liquid to disassemble or upgrade existing items
Other items get upgraded to new versions of items exclusive in the latest update. Examples of this are the Life Crystal which turns into a vital crystal in the pool. This grants permanent regeneration boosts.
Another item is the Rod of discord. Throwing that into the pool will change it into a rod of Harmony where you can use the rod’s ability to teleport without suffering any debuff from use.
Try throwing different items to see their results
NPCs that fall into the liquid will change their appearances and if you fall into the pond, you will be sucked down and pass through blocks. Try to throw in different items and test out their results.
