SCUM - All Points of Interest

A guide explaining areas of interest in which loot spawns with a correspond map with everything mapped out. Perfect guide if you want to craft, cook or make bullets!

Other SCUM Guides:


Overview



Below is the link to my Points of Interest map. This map has been created to point out loot spawn points, and what might spawn at these locations. These chance loots are based off what I've found in these areas while I was mapping everything out.


Workshops



Workshops are great for finding crafting materials, and even better for bullet crafting.

Workshops, like bars, have double doors! In side you'll find workbenches and lockers. For this guide I have not include the longer buildings with the ladder outside or the smaller building with the ladder inside. The reason for this is because I find better loot yields for the three types of workshops shown below in the screenshots.

These items have a chance to spawn here:

  • Small & Large Toolboxes
  • Lead Plates
  • Gun Powder
  • Metal Scraps
  • Barb Wire, Wire, Duct Tape
  • Rubber, Nails
  • Scissors & Non-military Clothing
  • Pickaxe, Axe

Grocery Stores



Grocery stores are fantastic for quick food if you're just starting out, and haven't gotten a chance to find a vegetable field or garden. Just be aware that while canned foods are easy to find here, they do give you a significant amount of sodium. With SCUM's future plans for heart attacks, sodium is not one of the things you want super high.

These items have a chance to spawn here:

  • Canned Food
  • Candy Bars
  • Raw Fruits
  • Walnuts
  • Sodas
  • Juices
  • Milk
  • Water Bottles
  • Non-military Clothing
  • TEC01 490 Shotgun (Rare Drop)

Pharmacies



The importance of pharmacies are a little lack-luster at this point in time. However, they're a great source to find emergency bandages without going into a military zone. Their importance will come when actual sicknesses are added to the game like malaria or psychosis. I don't spend too much time in pharmacies right now in-game, but I imagine that they include the following which I have not listed below -- activated charcoal, adrenaline, antipsychotic, antiradiation, atropine injection, potassium iodide pills or quinine sulphate pills.

These items have a chance to spawn here:

  • Antibiotics Box/Pills
  • Antimalaria Box/Pills
  • Antiparasitic Box/Pills
  • Aspirin
  • Beepollen Box/Pills
  • Vitamins Box/Pills
  • Emergency Bandage
  • Painkillers
  • Penicillin

Restaurants



One of my faviorite places in game to find all of the cooking materials I need! This is hands down the place to check for all those additional cooking materials you can add to a recipe that give your crafted food extra sources of nutrients.

These items have a chance to spawn here:

  • Cooking Pot
  • Spice Mix
  • Sea Salt Shaker/Box
  • Pepper Shaker
  • Rice
  • Sugar
  • Pasta
  • Baking Soda
  • Yeast
  • Vinegar
  • Vetable Oil
  • Wheat Flour
  • Small/Large Tool Boxes
  • Pistols (M9, Desert Eagle .50/.357)

Caves



Hidden locations out in the wilderness that past prisoners (prior to our characters entering the storyline) had inhabited. I personally wouldn't build my shelter or put boxes here, these locations are pretty mainstream, so if you do - don't say I didn't warn you.

These items have a chance to spawn here:

  • Camp Fires
  • Non-military Clothing

Churches



These devs are cheeky, which is most likely why they made it so rifles spawn in the tower of the churches. In addition to this, whomever ran these churches stockpiled on all the essential you need. No really, ammo & guns!

These items have a chance to spawn here:

  • All Pistols (.357/.50 Desert Eagle more rare)
  • 9mm Boxes
  • .357 Ammo
  • .50 ammo
  • Non-military Clothing
  • M1 Clip
  • M1 Rifle
  • Kar98
  • Bottle Water
  • Snacks/Food

Warehouse



Another good source to find bullet crafting materials.

These items have a chance to spawn here:

  • Metal scraps
  • Lead Plates
  • Snacks/Food
  • Rifle Ammo
  • Handgun Ammo
  • Shovels / Pickaxe
  • Non-military Clothing

Hunting Towers



These are nice little points for loot. In prior patches the hunting tower was one of the few places I found a Kar98, and with current patches that continues to be a thing.

These items have a chance to spawn here:

  • Metal Baseball Bat
  • Wooden Baseball Bat
  • Hats
  • Knives
  • Backpacks
  • M1 Rifle
  • Kar98
  • Hunter 85
  • Rifle Ammo
  • Scopes

Bars



First off, you can die from consuming too much alcohol... already hilariously confirmed that. However, in a lot of cooking recipes you can substitute water for alcohol (this is great if you're struggling to keep your water guage in the green, and don't want to waste precious water).

So remember, this is a great place to collect some cooking alcohols or if your just looking for a cold one to crack open with the boys in-game.

These items have a chance to spawn here:

  • Absinthe
  • Pelinkovac
  • Vodka
  • Beer
  • Whiskey
  • Tequila
  • Sodas
  • Water
  • Snacks/Candy
  • Kajel, Mina, Waitapu Beers

Military Zones



These areas are military zones that are not deemed a special location & do not have any mechs. However, because those two things aren't a factor it makes these points very lucrative & populated loot spots. These locations are a great way to get geared prior to going to a bunker if you don't want to run in unarmed. If the developers decide to add in hostile AIs these locations are most likely the areas they intend for them as there is nothing guarding these areas at this time.

These items have a chance to spawn here:

  • All Military Weapons
  • All Military Clothing
  • All Military Armor
  • All Ammos & Clips
  • TEC01 M9
  • Desert Eagle .50 & .357
  • TEC01 490
  • Knives
  • Grenades
  • Backpacks
  • Scopes

Gas Stations



At the moment it's just like a smaller grocery store that sometimes has clothing in it, but in the future when cars are released, this might be where we go to get gas. It only makes sense!

These items have a chance to spawn here:

  • Foods / Drinks
  • Non-military Clothing
  • Gas (maybe in the future)

Wooden Cabins



These cabins can be found out in the mild of the wilderness. Loot that has the potential to spawn here is very diverse. On the second set of pictures featuring the cabins there is actually a second floor you can get to by climbing on top of the hay pile. I’ve found people up there before along with boxes hidden up there!

Washing Machines



Washing machines have a good % of giving you clothing when you search them. It's a great way to get out of those oranges quickly or a good source to get rags for healing / crafting (you can cut them into strips & use the strips to create chordage).

These items have a chance to spawn in them:

  • Non-military Clothing

SCUM - All Points of Interest

Trash Piles / Can / Bags / Dumpsters



Yeah, it's garbage picking... but there is some good stuff in there!
