    After finishing the game, if you lack of pieces of salvage to get the latest parts of weapon, you can go here.

    In Shantytown, there is an infinite respawn of chickens and boars. Free pieces of salvage ( I get 900 pieces of salvage into 10 minutes ) ! :)

    Sorry for my english. :)

    Barker Guruwas unable to get this to work. chickens were spawning at around one very 2-3 minutes, and then stopped spawning altogether eventually. tried leaving / returning to the area but this seemed to have no effect on spawns. at best, I was only able to get around 40-50 salvage every 10 mins, so not a great grinding method. if you only needed a bit, like me, then it's a pretty good method

    TheBigTicket94Does anybody know where I can find my last 2 upgrades for shotgun. 100% complete and have to find 2 more parts yet?

    OxymorfiendYou will find weapon upgrade parts in random boxes of salvage. Just keeping opening stuff. I just reached the last area of the game before I got all of the upgrades.

    If you're still struggling to get some salvage...make sure you have the grenade launcher and head back to the coastal Forrest tomb. There is an exploding wall in the back that houses tons and tons of salvage.

    I easily found probably 400-500 salvage here.

    In order to get the HUGE amount of salvage needed for this, here are some tips when hunting for them:

    Perk Yourself Up - There are a few perks that enable you to get extra salvage when you raid the crates, and corpses of enemies and even animals that you kill.

    Explore Everything - Wether it's the optional tombs, or just small puzzles to get another crate to fall from a net, exploration will reward you in big ways.

    New Notification! - Have you noticed when you play, and just after you collect some salvage, there's a notification in the bottom right corner that tells you a new mod is available? Use this to your advantage and don't worry about recalling how much salvage you need for the Padded Stock or anything.

    Survival is Everything - When all else fails, use Survival Instincts. Salvage Crates, animals, unlooted enemies, and pretty much anything you can interact with will be highlighted.

    Xavier0080Anyone know what to do if this achievement won't pop? I've upgraded all my weapons and none of the respective achievements pop. My status on this site even shows 100%. Anyone got a solution of some type of profile reset?

    Xavier0080To help out anyone who had an issue like me, I tried everything I heard of like deleting my local save and game data, then resyncing my cloud save and reloading. The achievement eventually popped without any message about a week after I earned it, showing a timestamp for the original date I should have earned it on.
