Guide to Raft Waste Cubes | Gamer on PC
You’d be forgiven for thinking Raft Trash Cubes looks like something you wouldn’t want anymore, but they’re very useful in this waterlogged survival game. Raft has been in Early Access for a few years, but it finally got a full release on June 20, along with a shiny new update to mark the occasion.
Raft’s “The Final Chapter” update introduces a few new destinations to explore and puzzles, such as the Temperance Code (opens in a new tab), to scratch his head. On top of that, new crafting stations have been added and trading posts have popped up on some of the larger islands, allowing you to buy items – and that’s where Raft Trash Cubes come in. So here’s what you need to know about them.
Raft Waste Cubes: What Are They?
Despite their name, Trash Cubes are quite valuable in Raft as they are used as the primary currency for new Trading Posts. You can use them to purchase certain building materials, recipes, and cosmetic items for your house (raft?). More items will become available as you unlock higher tiers.
How to make raft waste cubes
Trash cubes aren’t made from actual trash, so you’ll have to decide what you have left over and use that instead. You need a raft rebreather (opens in a new tab) to craft a Trash Cube and you can use any of the following materials to craft one:
- To abandon
- The sand
- Oldest boy
- Palm tree leaf
- vine goo
- giant clam
- metallic ore
- copper ore
- titanium ore
- wet brick
- dry brick
Once you’ve decided on the material you want to use, interact with the recycler until it’s full. The amount you need will vary depending on what you’re using, so it’s worth experimenting to see which are the most cost-effective, as well as how easily you can source them.
