How to Make a Robotic Drone in 7 Days to Die

The first and most vital thing you’ll need to make a Robotic Drone in 7 Days to Die is the Robotic Drone Schematic. The only way to obtain one of these is to find them in chests or storage lockers around the world and they are very rare. That means you’ll have to do some serious looting before you finally get one. Besides that, You can find a Robotic Drone in locked containers or military airdrops, but even this is rarer than the schematic. Furthermore, it’s possible that one of the traders has one for sale. Regardless, if they do, it won’t be cheap, and you probably won’t be able to afford it. That’s why you’re best off making it yourself.

Once you have the schematic, you will need the following materials to build a level 1 drone: 5 Robotic Parts, 10 Forged Steel, 15 Duct Tape, 15 Scrap Polymers, and 2 Motion Sensors. You can make Robotic Drones all the way up to level 5. If you’re aiming to make a higher-level drone, you will need to invest some points in your Robotics Inventory Perk. However, the one Robotic Drone Schematic will work for all five levels.

Robotic Drone: Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5
Robotic Parts 5 7 10 12 15
Forged Steel 10 15 20 25 30
Duct Tape 15 22 30 37 45
Scrap Polymers 15 22 30 37 45
Motion Sensors 2 3 4 5 6
