Filler Metal




Filler Metal is an Crafting Material in Nier: Automata



 A metal used in welding.


Effects & Uses

  • Pod A - Level 2 → Level 3 ( Required: 5 )
  • Pod B - Level 2 → Level 3 ( Required: 5 )


Where to Find/Location

  • Sold by the shop keeper in the Park Ruins (after completing Route C)
  • Random harvestable item in the lower sections of the Abandoned Factory.(inside the factory:hangar saving point room there is 3 harvest spot )
    • If the Goliath has already spawned in the Factory:Hanger access point area, you can follow this farming loop in Route C instead. Tip: Equipping Auto-Collect Item chip is very useful for farming, speeds things up:
      • Go to the Factory:Hanger access point, Quick Save, and note the elevator that's there. Don't take the elevator. Follow the path through the Factory "forward" (kind of up and to the right), fighting everything you encounter and also blowing up the piles of dead purple machines, which sometimes drop materials. Keep going, fighting and collecting drops, until you get a fight in a silo (round area) with 2 or 3 Enhanced machines (type depends on your level -- at 60+ I was seeing 3 Multi-leg Mediums, or 2 Multi-leg Mediums and an Enhanced Goliath).
      • If that fight doesn't drop Filler Metal, keep going and fighting until you get to the other end of the elevator. You might get lucky with a random drop, but if you don't, reload from the Quick Save and run the loop again. Keep running the loop, saving if you get a drop of Filler Metal, reloading if you don't, until you farmed what you need. I got 3 Filler Metal, which was all I needed, in about 20 minutes of running that loop.
      • As a change of pace if you get bored, start by taking the elevator and work your way down and to the left of the Factory, until you return to the Hanger access point.



  • A total of 10 Filler Metal required for all upgrades.

      If you don't have access to lower factory, go to entrance, then through doors and turn right to elevator. 4 Loot spots, chances of having maximum of 2 filler metal.

        Factory: Furnace - first item on the ground can be Filler metal
        Factory: Hanger - the two drops can be Natural Rubber or Filler metal
        Factory: Entrance - natural rubber and Filler inside bushes
        I was transporting to Furnace, then to Hanger, then to Entrance which resets the stuff inside the factory. I'd run to the two drops near by which all seem to have similar drop tables.
