Fallout 4 - Semi-Automatic Vault-Tec Lunchbox Loot Farming

A guide to a semi-automatic loot farm from lunchboxes!

Introduction



Hey there everyone! Last week I was finally trying to get into making a factory with Fallout 4: Contraptions DLC, and I stumbled onto something.

Having set up a builder to make lunchboxes and run them towards sorters and storing the loot and the lunchboxes itself, I tried finding a machine that broke down the lunchboxes to components, but couldn't find them. I saw there was a mod for it, but I'm not big on playing with mods.

After learning that I found out that the lunchboxes "refill" themselves having been through enough machines and-/or lifts. So yeah, I then redirected a conveyor belt to make the lunchboxes fall on the conveyor belt right after the Builder machine.

My Setup



Here is my setup. I place my steel in the green steamer trunk, which gets transported to the builder to make lunchboxes.

Which then gets transported along a conveyor belt, where I hit them with either a melee weapon or pistol. You actually see where the boxes fall in the picture.

Here it gets sorted first on Steel components, which filters:

  • Table knife
  • Dinner fork
  • Table spoon

These items contains Steel and I use them to make new lunchboxes. The second sorter filters out Vault-Tec Lunchboxes, so this way it will be seperate from the loot it contained.

  • Left: lift for non-steel loot.
  • Middle-left: lift for lunchboxes. Make sure to have at around 20 lunchboxes always in the lift, otherwise the lunchboxes have to make another round through the system.
  • Middle-right: lift for when I have too much lunchboxes in the system --> it gets transported to a storage.
  • Right: storage for items that contain Steel.

This is the second floor, where non-steel loot will go to another lift and the lunchboxes go towards a storage, to then be sucked out of by a hopper.

The lunchboxes will be placed on the conveyor belt and be dropped on the conveyor belt seen before, where I hit them.

This is where I further sort my loot. Most times I only got:

  • Plastic fork
  • Plastic knife
  • Plastic spoon
  • Chalk
  • Baseball
  • Nuka-Cola
  • Bubblegum
  • Noodle cup
  • Gum drops
  • Dandy Boy Apples
  • Pen
  • Pencil

Maybe it's because I have low luck to not receive other items, but we'll see!
