You know how only normal chickens drop food? All the new fangled technology leaves the consumer with no reliable way of getting most meat! This is why we’re introducing Nuts and Bolts! You might already know them from effects that happen upon breaking mettalic parts, but we want you to collect them!
They will act like food and be just as big. They will drop instead from barriers, UFO pods and other enemies and bosses. Now you won’t need to worry on missing out on higher difficulties from those sweet keys!
You’ll be able to sell them at a new scrapyard (where perhaps you could occasionaly see some cheap equipment, or even timed (old/rusty) ones (Though this could be an idea of itself)) or alternatively at the weapon & equipment shop (The one with the rocket on top). The scrap will have a higher selling price than food, but will obviously be more rare and hard to get because most mettalic enemies are difficult and hard to come by.
