View Full Version : Did Salvage Just Get Capped at 172k?

So last night I completed a coop map and like every night I started breaking down every item I picked up that I wasn't going to use into resources. Unfortunately, after some time I noticed that I kept getting popups for +500, +750 +250, etc but that the number for my salvage wasn't going up. I forget the exact number but it is something like 172,995.

I thought maybe it was a display bug so I ran another coop map, got out, checked my salvage number, broke down four weapons, checked salvage number again and no change - same number.

I had thought that salvage wasn't capped, especially since you need about 20k to add a single mod slot to a purple...

I hope that is just a bug because that's a pretty low number to have for a cap.

Spend some, then earn some again. See if it just temporarily bugged. That IS a lot of salvage though - I can't imagine what you're worried you need to hold onto that much for.

As I understand it, the higher your EGO level (and the higher the required EGO of a weapon) the higher the cost to perform salvage matrix actions (add mod slots, remove mods, etc.)

For me (at just under 1k EGO) it's about 30k a pop to add slots.

I don't think they are just holding onto the resources, I'm the same way if I don't have a use for it I break it down and I just have a bunch of resources sitting around for when I am ready to mod out some stuff or buy keycodes

With this new patch, I've noticed that after salvaging say 10 items all in a row, once you leave the inventory screen and go back to game, you don't get a single lump sum notification float on screen. It will do each notification individually in order. So sometimes after a mass salvage, the notifications will continue popping up in order for 30+ seconds after I've finished salvaging.

So what i think is this: You receive the salvage instantly, just each notification takes 5(ish) seconds each and the game queues and plays them all in order.

My salvage is getting close to 200k. I'd buy keys. But its gonna take a while to buy only being able to purchase 1 key at a time...!

figured out what it was. hitting the "select" option in the bottom left, isnt working anymore. gotta double click the "resources" option, to get it to work now.
