Currently in the game in ps3 the only use for salvage is to mod weapons and upgrade turrets in sieges. I asked in the livestream and was told there are no plans in the future to make better use of Arksalvage. But, there should be. Currently I have over 2 million going to waste.

I offer to unlock all mod slots on low ego players guns, using my salvage. Normally I even do it for free, since I get more salvage quickly. Just from the grenades and stims/spikes I leave in claims that get auto-salvaged.

You forgot to include "unreasonable amounts of" before the salvage...

Was thinking it, but that wasn't the question. Heheheh. I just confirmed that it could indeed be done. Believe me, I miss key prices from a year ago!

Some people have an absurd amount of ark salvage from bonus loot weekends Trion use to do.

i dont have much arksalvage i still dont have 100,000 yet but i have seen lockboxes that want 1 mil scrip when your low ego its hard to get that scrip unless you do the gunslinger dark arena hostage trial i do the first room get killed retry within 2 hours i went from 1000 scrip to 29,000 scrip if i could swap my arkforge for scrip i could buy all the cars from vendors the only thintg i use salvage on is adding mod slots to guns and doing turrents in seiges nothing else for it other than buying boxes

I remember Ark Salvage used to mean something. Unlocking mod slots used to cost in the 10's to 100's of thousands.

Using them to buy keys is not all that great. Although it makes sense to cost what it does. But that scrip cost is a turn off. Its not a good buy. Its like buying jeans at full price, it kinda sucks. But that's what it costs.

It got to 225k or 250k ark salvage to unlock mod slots at one point early on and then up to 500k+ IIRC after an update. One of the very few benefits of being high ego back in the day.

The scrip price for keycodes on a lockbox is really high and since scrip has a higher value and is needed for trade purchase with other players I don't see many people buying the keycodes. Not really worth the value especially since there is a poor RNG system. However, myself and I am sure others, would be willing to trade in salvage for arkforge or other in game currencies. Cores maybe.

I would rather be able to trade AS in for AF say 1000 to 1 or maybe 10k to 1. Then at least I would have a good reason for building it up.
