Rimworld Mechanoid Corpse: How to Disassemble and What Does It Do?


Surviving in Rimworld is difficult. If you ask anyone who plays the game, they will give you the same classic answer. Even if you solve the survival problem after a while, you have a very high chance of being destroyed under the attacks of other tribes. As time passes, you can arm your own colony and fight other tribes. However, in Rimworld, there is a group of super-advanced and deadly robots called the Mechanoids. Although it is difficult to kill them, it is possible to get great pieces after killing them. We decided to prepare a detailed guide on the Rimworld mechanoid corpse. Mechanoids can be anywhere in the game.

They can protect themselves in the depths of the ocean, in an ancient ruin or hidden in structures that are thousands of years old. When they appear, their only purpose is to destroy mankind. Unless we destroy them first!

What are Mechanoids?

Unknown where they came from, these deadly machines were used as autonomous weapons in an ancient war. This tribe of ruthless machines feels no pain, does not get hungry, does not sleep, and can never feel anything. Of course we have a chance to fight and kill them. You may even be thinking about what to do with dozens of Rimworld Mechanoid Corpse after a big war. But don’t worry about it at all because you can break them apart and get rich resources.

Besides, with the new Biotech DLC, you can now create your own Mechanoids using high technology. In this way, you have a very serious power in your hands against the armies of Mechanoids. Now let’s take a look at what Mechanoid Corpses Rimworld does exactly.

Rimworld: What to Do with Mechanoid Corpses?

If you’ve gotten to the point where you’re going to fight Mechonids, you’ll likely have plenty of corpses on your hands. There is a very simple and convenient way to use these corpses. Read on if you wonder how you can smash each Rimworld Mechanoid Corpse.

  • Before you can fight and kill Mechanoids, you need to set up a “Machining table” inside your colony. Of course, to build this structure, you need to have researched “Machining” from the research desk. If you have done all these, you can start using the Machining Table.
  • When you transmit 350 W of energy to the Machining Table, it will now be ready for use. First, open the Machining Table and click the “Bills” button. Then click on “Add bill” on the screen that appears and continue and create a production order with “Shred Mechanoid”.
  • After creating an order, if there is a mechanoid corpse in your warehouse, shredding will start immediately.

As you can see, the Mechanoid Corpse can be easily disintegrated in Rimworld. Moreover, after the shredding process is finished, you will have obtained some valuable materials such as Plasteel and Components. With these materials you can create your own friendly Mechanoids if you wish.

Rimworld what to do with Mechanoid Corpses

Honestly, you can do anything. Because Mechanoid Corpses give loot Plasteel and Components when shredded in Rimworld. In the later stages of the game, you will need to use Plasteel and Components in almost every item you will make. Because of this, you may want to kill a lot of Mechanoids.

Mechanoid Types

Your colony will need to sleep much less if a war broke out between you and the Mechanoids. Because at any moment an attack can occur and your entire colony can be destroyed instantly. Here are all the Mechanoid types you are likely to encounter:

  • Centipede
  • Lancer
  • Pikeman
  • Scyther
  • Termite
  • Agrihand
  • Apocriton
  • Centurion
  • Cleansweeper
  • Constructoid
  • Diabolus
  • Fabricor
  • Legionary
  • Lifter
  • Militor
  • Paramedic
  • Scorcher
  • Tesseron
  • Tunneler
  • War Queen
  • War Urchin

The Mechanoids are a fully organized high-level robot race. Each Mechanoid has a separate task among themselves. For example, Tunnes have quite thick armor as a Mining Mechanoid and are really hard to kill. Likewise, War Queen may be the only type of Mechanoid you don’t want to come across in the game. Because War Queen produces a Mechanoid called “War Urchin” that makes mass attacks.


In today’s article, we did a very detailed research on Rimworld Mechanoid Corpse. As someone who has played Rimworld for many years, I did not know exactly what Mechanoids was for. While I was preparing this guide for you, I was also fighting Mechanoids in my own game. In this way, I tried to convey to you exactly what I can do with the Mechanoids I killed. That’s it for now, see you in the next Rimworld guide!
