If you’re new to Raft, you will come across the need to make ingots not long after beginning the game.
You’ll mostly be required to make metal ingots at first.
Here’s how you can craft ingots like metal and copper in the game Raft.
Before you can get ingots, you need the ores.
Metal and copper ores can be obtained from any or most islands’ surroundings.
Once you’ve reached a small island, dock your raft and you can look for these ores underwater.
They’re normally in the clear water section. Copper ores might be easier to find.
Most of the metal ores are deeper inside the sea / ocean.
To obtain any of these ores, you need to equip your hook first.
Go near the ore and hold your action button until you break and obtain the ore. You can speed up the process if you have a better hook.
Smelt the ores
The next step is to build a smelter.
You need to unlock the smelter blueprint via the research table.
It requires 4 planks, 8 dry bricks, 4 scraps and 6 nails.
Planks and scraps are easy to find. Nails can be transformed from scraps.
Once the smelter is built, you can place the ores inside.
You can only put one ore at a time. You also need to put planks to make it burn.
After some time, the ores will turn into ingots.
