Components are a Material in This War of Mine.
They are used as a base resource for building household items and are involved in the production of all consumable goods in some fashion. For example, a Filter can be created at the Workshop at a cost of 3 Components, which can then be used to make water. Water can then be used to cook food, grow vegetables, and grow herbs.
It is inferred that all goods have an overall component cost during the production cycle, whether from the production cycle itself or from the construction of the household item that produced it. Consequently, components tend to be consumed at a faster rate than other Materials.
Components can be obtained by trading or scavenging.
