The Best Way to Get Lumber in Dysmantle

The main way you get lumber in Dysmantle is by collecting wood and refining it at the Sawmill. It takes x5 Wood to get x1 Lumber, so you’ll need to dismantle everything you can to get as much wood as possible. I naturally accumulate a lot of wood in my runs, but here are the best places to find wood for lumber.

Where Get More Wood in Dysmantle

The most common and most efficient way to get wood is by dismantling. Virtually any wooden object in the game, whether that be fences, trees, wooden shields, or anything else, can be dismantled to grant you wood. Explore the world and dismantle everything in sight to bag a decent stash.

Dysmantle Sawmill Locations with Coordinates

There are three sawmills on the Dysmantle map:

  • Two can be found in Central at 729º, 491º and 576º, 458º.
  • One can be found in Hibernus at 1042º, 237º.

Regardless of which of the three sawmills you use, getting to each one requires a gas mask to enter the region, so I would make sure you have one before setting out to refine your wood.

How to Get Fuel for Sawmills in Dysmantle

Once you have wood and have found a sawmill, you can throw your wood into it, along with some fuel in the form of plant matter. You get plant matter by harvesting virtually any plant in Dysmantle. Each piece of plant matter gives five seconds’ worth of fuel for refining, and you need 40 seconds to refine a piece of lumber. Thus, you need x8 Plant Matter per piece of refined Lumber.

Other Ways to Get Lumber in Dysmantle

There are a few other ways to get lumber in Dysmantle. One of the easiest ones I found is dismantling a train flatbed, which earns you x6 Lumber. Additionally, dismantling a train caboose or train wagon will give you x8 Lumber, or dismantling a windmill will give you x10 Lumber. It can also be found as loot in all of the following places:

  • One at 134º, 452º
  • One at 578º, 183º
  • Two at 400º, 596º
  • Four at 595º, 120º
  • Two in buried treasure at 394º, 296º
  • Four in buried treasure at 463º, 422º
  • 20 in buried treasure at 656º, 591º
  • Two in a timed crate at 183º, 418º

Lumber is an incredibly useful material. Fifty are required for the quest, The Ark, while you need x67 to repair all of the broken bridges around the world. I’ve also found it to be a common crafting ingredient, including items such as the sledgehammer, Power Fist, Hunting Rifle, and Khopesh.

That’s all I can say about getting Lumber in Dysmantle. For more tips and tricks, such as how to get Iron, Steel, and Titanium, head over to our Dysmantle guides hub!
