Crafting is done via the Base of Operations, and allows you to construct weapons, weapon mods, and gear/gear mods. You can find components for crafting in the overworld. Each of these components have levels that correspond to their blueprints.
Each item crafting process has a blueprint, and each blueprint has a blueprint level. To craft a blueprint, your items must match that level; for instance, a green level blueprint must utilize green components. The level, between 1 and 30, determines the quality, ranging from word to high-end.
When the item is crafted, an internal random algorithm, referred to by players as a "dice roll", determines the stats and quality of the item within the pre-determined range level. The blueprint is not used up, and instead can be re-used multiple times.
