So, you’ve built a wall in Conan Exiles and now you’re thinking, “Oops, that’s not where I wanted it,” or perhaps, “I’d like to remodel my base.” No worries! Removing a wall is a pretty straightforward process, even if you’re new to the game.
It’s a fairly intuitive process, even for new players, but if you’ve looked this up, you probably just want the shortcuts.
So, let’s go through it step-by-step:
What You’ll Need
- The wall you want to remove.
- The character you’re playing with (obviously!)
- These simple instructions
Step 1: Get Close to the Wall
First thing’s first—walk up to the wall you want to remove. Make sure you’re close enough so that the game knows you’re interacting with that specific wall.
Step 2: Aim Your Crosshair
Aim the crosshair at the wall. You should see some contextual options appearing, usually at the bottom of the screen, indicating possible interactions.
Step 3: Open the Context Menu
For most platforms, you’ll need to press and hold a specific button to open the contextual interaction menu. The button varies by platform:
For PC, it’s usually the “E” key.
For Xbox, it’s the “Y” button.
For PlayStation, it’s the “Triangle” button.
Step 4: Choose ‘Dismantle’
Once the menu pops up, look for the option that says ‘Dismantle’ and select it. On some platforms, you might need to scroll down to find it.
Step 5: Confirm the Action
After selecting ‘Dismantle,’ you’ll usually have to confirm that you really want to remove the wall. Say yes, and voila! The wall disappears, and you get some of the materials you used to build it back in your inventory.
And there you have it—a wall successfully removed in Conan Exiles. Now, you can remodel, reconstruct, or just revel in the newfound space you’ve created.
Remember, this isn’t just for walls. The same basic steps apply to other structures you’ve built, like foundations, doors, or even entire buildings if you’re feeling ambitious.
Now that you’ve torn down some of the walls, why not try rebuilding? We have an entire building guide just for you here.
Reasons to Remove a Wall in Conan Exiles
Why would you want to remove a wall anyway? There are lots of reasons to build, but here are some reasons to tear down as well:
1. Mistakes Happen
We’ve all been there—you place a wall and then realize it’s not quite where you wanted it. Maybe it’s slightly off-angle, or perhaps it’s blocking something important.
2. Upgrades and Remodeling
As you progress in the game, you’ll get access to better building materials. Maybe you started with a sandstone base and now you want to upgrade to something sturdier, like insulated wood or black ice. Removing the old wall makes room for the new.
3. To Change Layouts
Your needs change as you advance in the game. What started as a small, functional base might need to expand to house new crafting stations, thralls, or storage. Removing walls lets you reconfigure your space to better suit your current needs.
4. Strategic Redesign
Perhaps you’ve been raided, or you foresee a raid coming your way. Removing a wall might be necessary to reinforce your base with defensive structures, like traps or improved walls that offer better resistance to attacks.
5. Aesthetic Changes
Sometimes, you just want to change how your base looks. Maybe you’ve decided on a different architectural style or layout, or you’ve got some decorative items that require more space. Removing a wall can make your base more visually pleasing.
6. Resource Recovery
When you dismantle a wall, you typically get back some of the resources you spent on it. If you’re short on materials, removing a wall you no longer need can be a quick way to recover some of them.
So whether it’s for function, strategy, or simply to fuel your creative vision, there are plenty of reasons why you might want to remove a wall in Conan Exiles. Now that you know how to do it—and why you might want to—you’re better prepared to adapt and grow your base as you progress through the game.
Happy building and happy gaming!
