It is possible to change the time it takes to craft the item to 0.1s for example, which allows you to craft an item in a mouse click.
Crafting is now pointless as of 1.2 you can't even dismantle sodas anymore on ps4
Hardly pointless, as they also lowered the cost of crafting materials from venders by A HUGE amount. You just can't cheese the system anymore, as they removed soda breakdown exploit, removed the grenade exploit, lowered the return on some item break downs, but in turn they also lowered the cost of crafting and upgrading items too. They did remove many of the exploits from the game in dupping and crafting, but seem to have countered this in changes to sale prices and crafting costs.
Well yeah that was a bit broken. But the solution would have been to reduce the price of components when you sell it making it worthless but keeping it possible to dismantle and grab the components from the ones you loot.
Never undestood gamers crying about not being able to approach exploit within games. Sht makes games pointless, boring, and a cake walk. The only benefit I see with exploits is to test out quick-builds, specially if you are a youtuber who makes content for people who are looking foward to take advantage of the game and be OP as hell.
