How to earn money quickly in Lethal Company

To earn money in Lethat Company, you must sell scrap at the company moon. But there are things to consider if you want to maximize your earnings and sell your items at the highest price.

Sell your scrap on the last day of the deadline

You can go to the Company Building on 71-Gordion anytime and sell scrap. However, you will only get paid a percentage, unlike on the last day when all scrap will be priced at 100%. This way, you make the most of your loot and don't waste any hard-earned money. You can sell all your scrap once the counter reaches zero days left.

Go to the Moons with more Loot

If you've already progressed in the game and are looking to get as much money as possible, then you need to go to one of the fee-locked Moons. The best options are Titan and Rend, but they have advantages and disadvantages.


Titan is considered as the best place for looting. While you must climb up all those stairs, you can quickly drop all of your loot off the edge. This will get it closer to your shop and quicker to pick up. Grab the extending ladders to ensure you get the scraps as low as possible to the ground.

On the other side, Titan is the most expensive Moon to travel. It also usually has the more dangerous creatures spawning inside, like the Jester. Monsters outside will cause issues, too, as they can climb stairs. Once the nighttime falls, Forest Keepers and Eyeless Dogs can spawn here, so be as quick as possible.


Rend has a clear and quick route from the building to the ship. This moon has a Mansion interior that spawns better loot but also spawns more dangerous monsters. You have to choose whether it's worth the risk or not. If you have a well-prepared team, then it's probably worth it.

Have a good team strategy for looting

While you can play solo in Lethal Company, playing with others is better as you can plan out a good team strategy for looting. It would be best if you were playing in a team of four. Once you land, all four of you should head inside the complex and grab any scrap you can find.

Playing as a team of four is also good, as you can double up and take down any easier monsters roaming around. Any loot you grab, take back outside in front of the entrance. Once you've captured enough items in that first go, one teammate should return with some of the loot to the ship. This person should then settle on the terminal, monitoring the teammates for dangers and unlocking doors.

After looting with the three of you for a bit longer, one person should also head back outside. This teammate should take all other items left outside to the ship. The other two players should keep searching the building. Once the night starts to fall, everyone should make their way back. Do this to avoid all nighttime monsters, dying from them and losing items.

How to meet quotas in Lethal Company

Some advice for meeting quotas in Lethal Company is the same as above. But if you're just starting out, here are some additional suggestions.

Purchase useful items

On the first day, you will have 60 credits to spend on items at the terminal. Keep your eye out for item discounts. What you'll need to get at the beginning is at least one flashlight, preferably two. This way, you can work in pairs.

If you have any leftover money, purchase a shovel to fend off monsters. If you don't, then keep hope you'll find a stop sign somewhere in the complex.

As you progress through the game, you will be able to purchase other valuable items, like the teleporter, lockpicker, and zap gun. All items you buy are designed to help you stay alive and get out with the most loot possible.

Go to the easier Moons first

When you just start playing Lethal Company, your quota will be low and not difficult to reach (so long as you don't all die). Experience, Assurance, and Vow don't have that high loot drop, but they will be more than enough for a start. They also have fewer monsters to worry about, making them beginner-friendly moons, especially Experience and Assurance.

Once you progress and start earning money, you can look at the rest of the Moons. As mentioned above, Titan and Rend will be great options to meet higher quotas fast.
