- Nothing is gained if the player does not have at least level 1 of the Scrapper perk. At level 3 yields are doubled or more than doubled.
- Copper can be found all across the Commonwealth. It can also be scrapped from weapons and armor if the player character has obtained the Scrapper perk. The best source of copper for scrapping are modified pipe rifles, pipe revolvers and pipe pistols; specifically those with longer barrels. Further to this, any pipe weapon with the 'rifle' suffix will yield at least 1 copper when scrapped.
- A large number of junk objects containing copper can be found at Wattz Consumer Electronics.
- A large number of pre-War lamps (4 copper each) can be found at the Cabot House.
- Can also be scrapped from the street lamps in Sanctuary.
