Gathering is a game mechanic that allows the player to pick up overworld loot found on the surface. Gathering does not require any tool and can be performed by simply interacting with the object and consuming stamina. In exchange from gathering loot, the player receives an item or several items in relation to the loot.

Most gatherable loot can be identified by a sparkle on an object. Other objects, such as tumbleweed, can be interacted with.

Cleaning up trash

Trash is a gatherable loot that can be found littered throughout the city of Sandrock. Trash come in the form of various objects, such as paper, clothing, or rubber product, metal parts, food scrap, or broken weaponry. When the player approaches trash, a gather action called "clean up" appears. Gathering trash does not consume stamina nor does the player need to hold the "E" button.

Possible loot[]

Dregs are common loot from picking up trash.
