Here is a Overview for how to get Steel:
- Steel can be bought as well from Trappers in exchange for Supplies, so it is important to gather all Supplies crossing your way.
- Liberating Enemy Farms gives you a fixed amount of Steel, you can see it on your map by looking up for the red wheat icons. It counts also for liberating enemy outposts which you can see on your map as red dots. You don’t get Steel from Strongholds seen as red building icons on your map.
- There is a good chance to get some Steel inside the enemy tents of the outposts. There are often some boxes, always open them as those have a chance containing some Steel.
