Metal Detector

Detects metal objects which may otherwise be hidden. When the light flashes, or you hear a beep, aim to search for items. Increase the bar until a flag appears. Dig at the flag with a melee item to reveal what it is. Different areas yield different rewards

This thing is just way too good to be working off infinitely, you can farm easily solo even while on a safe zone over 300 scrap in less than 20 mins, since road signs are so abundant and each find gives at least 20 scrap each.
Add either a recharge to it or make it work off a battery.
