Learn how to obtain Steel Club Parts and what they can be used for

Clubs in 7 Days to Die specialize in dealing hefty amounts of damage and have the ability to both stun and knock down enemies. The strongest member of this weapon class is the vicious Steel Club, but you’ll need to find Steel Club Parts to craft this powerful melee weapon.

This guide will teach you everything about scavenging Steel Club Parts in 7D2D and how they can be best used.

How to get Steel Club Parts in 7 Days to Die

Steel Club Parts are rare, specialized components specifically used in crafting sturdy, weighted melee weapons. They cannot be crafted, so there are only a few ways to get your hands on these valuable materials:

1. Scavenging

As with all advanced weapon parts, you can search for Steel Club Parts anywhere you’d expect to find a functional firearm. Gun safes, weapon bags, hardened chests, gun racks, and weapon crates are all great locations to find these components.

2. Scrapping

Waste-not, want-not. If you need Steel Club Parts, you can scrap old or unwanted Steel Clubs to reclaim a portion of their parts. These weapons can rarely be found in the same locations as their parts.

3. Trading

Some traders will carry weapon parts in their inventory for sale. This is typically the most costly method of collecting these components, but it can be much faster than searching for them if you have dukes to spend. Trader Hugh in the Snow Biome of Navezgane is typically your best bet to find what you need, as he specializes in weapons and ammo.

Tips for Farming Steel Club Parts in 7 Days to Die

These parts are not easy to find by any means. Fortunately, you’ll probably only need a few unless you plan to outfit a small army. But we’ve got you covered if you need tips to make your search more effective.

2. Gun Shops and Factories

Navezgane is dotted with numerous gun shops of various sizes, shooting ranges, and the coveted Shotgun Messiah Factory in the Wasteland Biome of Navezgane. These locations are great places to search for weapon parts of any kind, in addition to ammo, armor, and explosives. Remember: The all-in-one brand for ranged weapons in 7D2D is “Shotgun Messiah,” so any buildings or crates with that name on them are likely to be carrying guns, weapon parts, and ammo.

3. Government Buildings and Military Bases

Governmental buildings (such as police stations, fire stations, etc.) can be found inside and near the outskirts of cities and often conceal at least one gun safe or an entire armory in some cases. Additionally, the abandoned military bases dotting the countryside are bound to carry at least a few high-value weapon containers. Be careful, however, as these locations are often well-defended and swarming with armored and feral undead.

Using Steel Club Parts in 7 Days to Die

Steel Club Parts are heavy, durable metal parts used for crafting weighted clubs. As such, they are only used in the crafting of a single weapon:

The Steel Club is a powerful strength-based melee weapon and one of the best weapons in the game. This weighted metal bludgeon excels at dishing out serious punishment and can stop enemies in their tracks by stunning them or knocking them to the ground.

Final thoughts on Steel Club Parts

Though a simple design overall, we admit it likely wouldn’t be easy to find those massive steel gears this weapon has fitted to its head. Our characters could probably make similar items independently, but The Fun Pimps required these specialized components as part of the game’s balance, so it’s best not to think too hard about it.
