Encryptor is an object in Scrap Mechanic.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Encryptors are used to prevent players from removing objects in Warehouses. These cannot be deactivated, as they are hidden in an inaccessible area and using Explosive Canisters to blow them off does not do anything after they are detached.
Encryptors are currently unable to be obtained by players without editing the game files.
However, if you blow the Encryptor off the wall and manage to move it into the elevator and take it to the roof, you can then pick it up with the Weld Tool.
Creations with Encryptors attached cannot be placed on the Lift.
Encryptors have a "use" prompt, but currently only work like switches.

Upcoming[edit | edit source]
Encryptors in Warehouses may be able to be deactivated at some point in the future.
Encryptors may also be available for use by players. Their item descriptions indicate that they will require power in the form of a connected Battery Container.
