How do you sell scrap metal in Lethal Company?
To sell scrap metal in Lethal Company, you'll first have to head to the Company's HQ on the moon, by using the navigation terminal on your ship. Enter the command "moons" into the navigation terminal, then "the company". This will select the moon with the Company's headquarters on it. Type in "confirm" and you'll set a course to the HQ.
Next, start up the ship and fly over to the moon. When you arrive, head straight to the shop counter at the HQ and place your items, including your scrap metal on the counter. After you've done so, ring the bell, and a creature will appear to collect the items. Be careful, as players who get too close will find themselves being eaten by the creature.
After a short wait, you'll receive your pay for the items and scrap metal. It's worth being aware that you can sell scrap metal for different prices, depending on how close it is to the end of the quota. Therefore, it can be worthwhile to horde your scrap metal before selling it on the final day.
Consequently, this comes with the added risk that if you die on one of your missions with all of your scrap metal, you'll likely fail to meet your quota. To prevent this, sell enough scrap to meet your quota, but hang on to the rest before the new period begins.
