Materials (otherwise known as Mats) is the commonly used term to describe the resources and ingredients required for building and crafting. Players can break and or search world objects such as trees, bushes, rocks, houses, containers, chests, toolboxes and more in the world to obtain materials which they can therefore build structures using wood, brick and or metal. Breaking and or searching world resources will give players crafting ingredients which can be used to make Weapons, Traps, and Ammunition in Save the World.

Trivia

  • Stone is the only building material of the total three world resources that have a chance of a garden gnome spawning inside of a wall.
  • Due to a glitch during the first initial release of Challenge the Horde, players experienced their personal Storage being completely wiped. As compensation, EPIC replenished what was lost to players Storage and added what is now known as 6 star materials into the game accidentally during this process.
