I have built some settlements but I need help. I can not find supplies that I need. I know that you can break stuff down and all that other good stuff. I'm specifically looking for copper and aluminum. Where and how can I find more of these?

  • What sort of supplies are you looking for? – VanBuzzKill Nov 1 '16 at 17:02
  • Copper and aluminum. – Robert__garnet Nov 1 '16 at 17:07

You are able to mark specific resources in your Pip-Boy so that when you encounter Junk that will break down into those resources, they will be marked with a magnifying glass icon. (See here)
