Players can obtain Synthetic Scrap by finding it while raiding or scrapping affordable items like the cloth cap. Scrapping items enables players to get a larger quantity of Synthetic Scrap faster if they have enough money. 

The Cloth Cap is sold by the United Allies and can be purchased for $661. Players can also buy Sack Bags for $487 if they have a high enough reputation. Both items yield a 50% chance of producing Synthetic Scrap and a 50% chance of yielding Junk Scrap.

While in a raid, Synthetic Scrap looks like white rolled-up cloth or paper. You can find it both in the game world and inside crates and other lootable objects. 

Another option players can take includes grabbing the starting items in the ship, then instantly exfiling out of the raid and scrapping those materials to find Synthetic Scrap. However, in our experience, this takes far too long. It is a good free alternative if you’re having trouble gaining money in the game.
