    Might as well gather what people know about crafting in one place.

    So heres what ive got so far:

    Blueprints:

    Take 3 primary weapons and you get Scrap Metal
    Take 3 secondary weapons and you get Scrap Metal
    Take 3 melee weapons and you get Scrap Metal
    Take 3 peices of scrap metal and you get Reclaimed Metal
    Take 3 peices of Reclaimed Metal and you get Refined Metal
    Take 3 Peices of Refined Metal and you can get a random hat

    Take 4 weapons from the same class and you get a class token
    Take 4 weapons in the same loadout slot and you get a slot token
    Take 3 refined metal and 1 class token and you get a hat from that class


    Tests:

    more then 4 of a single weapon doesn't do anything (tested with kritzcreigs)
    slot tokens seem to work in the place of weapons (3 second slot tokens will work to create scrap metal)
    watches don't work for making scrap metal
    4 watches can combine into a PDA2 slot token, the image is a bottle

    Nothing Happens:

    3 of the same slot tokens does nothing
    4 of the same slot tokens does nothing
    1 slot token and scrap metal does nothing



    Going to edit on more later, game time :p

    This just got less exciting.

    I thought now there won't be a need to idle to get good hats. Except, the only way to get enough shit to make enough scrap metal is to idle.

    Out of all my items, I barely have enough for 2 refined metal. Oh yay.

    Yeah, I finally am probably going to start idling once the computer crashing issue gets fixed.

    Yea, I went through all three of my sniper bandanas, and the headless to end up with a geology bonnet. A far trade, might I say.

    Also:

    3 secondary slot tokens = scrap metal.
    1 primary, 1 secondary, 1 melee from a single class will make a scrap metal.

    Two hats (barring Gibus and possibly other 'special' hats) gets you a random hat.

    I turned my bonk helm and hatless scout into a tyrant's helm.

    Best. Day. Ever.

    Well Valve has finally convinced me to start idling.

    Congrats to them on broken design.

    I hardly ever get any drops so it looks like I've never going to be able to craft any hats.

    As of now you probably shouldn't waste too much time with the class tokens unless you really want a hat or item for the specific class. I made that mistake... I probably could have had three bars of refined metal if I didn't waste my stuff making a bunch of spy class tokens.

    So far, I hate it. I've made the 1 class token I wanted, the pyro one, I've made 3 bars of refined metal, and now I"m out of spare unlocks to use and I never get drops. Just 3 more scrap metal and I would've won :[

    The weapon slot tokens seem to do this, however I don't think the class ones can, try a few different combinations though.. maybe it requires two or four rather then three.

    Also, hang on to one of each. I have a feeling that one class token from each class can be combined into something.

    The watches can't be used for metal, since they are neither primary, secondary or melee

    Messed around with the 2 hats = 1 random hat thing earlier.

    Put a Trophy Belt and a Football Helmet in and got a Professional's Panama.
    Put the Panama and Mining Light in and got a Football Helmet.

    So yea, got rid of a Mining Light to get a hat that I had before I even started. Oh well, still have a Tyrant's Helm that I got last night during the spam of items.
