    Notice: this was done months ago, and so we don't know if the drop rates are still the same

    First off, I'm gonna keep updating this as I do this in the future :) Second, shout out to Captain Gilligin, he did this twice and made me think, Why not compile the communities results?
    Basically, for those unaware, you can mass buy common items from the shop and scrap them in hopes of rare parts etc.
    Also, I don't record uncommon parts/cells because those are pretty useless for me
    Total Scrapped: 1100
    Total Gold Spent: 5,500,000
    Total Rare Pieces: 89
    Average Gold per rare piece: 61,797
    Last Updater: simonwor

    Results:
    1 legendary power cell
    15 epic power cells / 0 epic parts
    49 rare power cells / 294 rare parts

    10 rare green item pieces
    51 rare red item pieces
    10 rare blue item piece
    18 rare yellow item pieces

    3 epic red piece
    1 epic green piece

    1 legendary blue piece!
    1 legendary red piece!
    1 legendary green piece!

    Behumble has also supplied us with enough evidence "for those flat Earthers" to conclude that it does not matter which color you scrap (for commons only), you will have the same odds to get any color piece.
    My guess is that the % for each color is found by taking the # items of that colour divided by all items. For example green would only have 4/35 chance to pop up because there are only 4 green items and 35 total items.

    If anyone would like to add onto this list, go ahead and try it out yourself and post on this thread, I'll make sure to update it with everyone's results :). The more we have, the more accurate our % will be!

    I'm sure mass scrapping commons will be removed soon or chances will decrease drastically so enjoy it while you can guys

    I'm confused. Can you buy common items? I thought once you have something already you can't buy it? I hope they don't get rid of the scrap commons method. I got an epic sniper cannon from a common free box once. Scrapping commons has given me rare items I think and some rare power cells and item pieces.

    Why did you put exploit in quotes?

    Nah they won't remove it, already nerfed it once and it's barely worth it; you pay a little less than 62k(shop price) per piece but the trade off is you can't pick what color.
    Plus, it's a reason to spend gold: players will play more to do this-> more ad revenue

    I have scrapped 1million plus and never got anything.

    Considering a) the amount fo gold you need to get a legendary out of this and b) that legendary tier 1 is as good as rare tier 5, I don't see why they would nerf it

    I got legendary blue part from it, its not a big deal. BUT you get rare pieces so frequently, which is pretty good

    Why would mass scrapping be removed? Did the devs hint at a change somewhere?

    It makes farming rares too easy. I don't think it will be removed but nerfed heavily.

    Out of curiosity what common item are you buying? Like the cannon every time or do you change it up?

    I don't think anyone buys a single item because you can only buy from the shop what you don't have, so you'd need to open shop, buy, close shop, scrap, etc, which would be very annoying. Better to buy a bunch of commons at once and then scrap them all. I usually buy 10 at a time.

    Let the devs first make some new content before they are nerfing things again.
