Shell casings will be completely destroyed by the Laser Welder. Since the Laser Welder tends to push them away before it vaporizes them, they may be swept or mopped into a pile against a wall before welding.

Other TrashEdit


  • Despite the fact that the sniffer does not detect them as trash, all Domestabots and droids that can be picked up must be disposed of in order to clean a level completely.
  • The game's developers considered adding a tool to pick up multiple shell casings at once, long before players suggested the idea. The tool would have been attracted to any metal object in the level, including wall panels, even pulling the player towards them. No explanation has been given for why it was never implemented.[1]
