Any player of Fallout 4, especially those who crafted defenses for their settlements will understand when I say.....argh, aluminium, where the heck can I find more.
Vital to repair power armor, build certain weapons both personal and turreted, no matter how much I have, I need to scavage more.
In FO4 theres about ten rarer materials which can be scavenged from junk which are vital to constructing useful gear and settlements
In addition to aluminum, oil comes second, followed in no particular order by circuitry, crystal, ballistic fiber, acid, screws, gears and copper.
At least these are the material I learned in my most recent playthrough of FO4 to purchase from any npc merchant I could find selling them on a daily (game time) basis.
My guess is FO76 won't offer a way to supplement materials by direct purchase, so scavaging and perhaps the perks which support it will ramp up in terms of value.
So hang on to your junk folks, it could be far more valuable than it seems.
