How to Use Impact Driver in 7 Days to Die

In 7 Days to Die, Impact Driver is a tool used for dismantling various mechanical and electrical blocks for spare parts. In essence, it works in exactly the same way as the Wrench or Ratchet. However, it is simply a more efficient tool. That means that it uses much less stamina, requires fewer hits to disassemble objects, and so on.

In terms of raw loot numbers, you will always get the same amount of materials. It doesn’t matter if you use the Wrench, Ratchet or Impact Driver. In addition, with every level of the Salvage Operations perk, you will get an option to craft a higher-quality Impact Driver variation.
