The Platforms 1 Guide is a Basic crafting guide.
Using the Platforms 1 Guide unlocks the following recipes in the player's crafting menu:
|4 × Lumber|
|6 × Lumber|
|8 × Lumber|
This guide is a random drop which can be found throughout the map, typically found in buildings, while searching lockers, air-drop shipments, plane crash sites and while looting mutants which have been killed.
Once this item has been found, the player must right-click on it and select Learn at which point the guide will disappear and the player will be able to create items unlocked by the guide. If the guide has already been learned, the player upon collecting subsequent guides of this type will be unable to learn the guide and the guide will remain in the player's inventory.
The guide can be placed into community chests or passed onto other players.
