Sorry if this has been asked before, or is obvious (I checked around and didn’t see any duplicate questions but I could be wrong)…
If I perform an action, and have multiple tools of the same type in my inventory, will the game pick the best one for the job?
Example: I carry around a ‘butcher knife’ and an ‘X-Acto knife’. If I quick butcher a zombie, the game will use the butcher knife correct? But if I dismember a zombie (technician for example), the game will use the X-Acto knife right?
Just want to make sure I’m not accidentally using my butcher knife for dissection! Or wasting time being cautious and dropping items when I don’t have to. Thanks for your help!
It’s the same deal. The “holster” (sheath, scabbard, utility belt etc.) will take on the same qualities as whatever it is containing. You can see this in-game if you examine it, it’ll say something like “utility belt with knife; has level 15 butchering quality”.
