Phantom Brigade – Save Game Editing Guide

A guide that explains how to make you able to pick ALL salvage from a mission and get max supplies the game allows.


  • You need some way to edit .yaml files, “Notepad++” is a good program for that.
  • You also need a way to open .zip files, “7zip” is a decent option.

Now you are set, the next step is editing.

Editing Time

First, you need to have a save game, so go play for a bit, once you have a bit of downtime, save the game, and remember to give the save game a simple name. Like “Clown soup”. For instance.

It’s unique enough that it’s easy to find.

For this guide, I’ll assume you gave the save game that name.

Navigate to ” C:\ Users\ ****\ AppData\ Local\ PhantomBrigade\ Saves\ Clown Soup “.

Open the “Content.Zip”

The “difficulty.yaml” Is rather explanatory, but lets edit at least 2 values here for our benefit.

Change the following settings to 99.0:

  • combat_salvage_budget_defeat
  • combat_salvage_budget_victory

This’ll allow you to take all items from the battle field, either when you get defeated or win.

Save the file and update the “” (You may need to exit Notepad++) for the zip to get updated.

Next, we gonna set our supplies/salvage value to 10.000 (MAX as far as I have seen in the game…)

Open “” again and then open “OverworldEntities” and look for “squad_mobilebase.yaml“, and open that file.

Scroll down just a little bit till you see something like:

  supplies: #
    battery: ###
    repair_juice: ###
    supplies: ###

I replaced the numbers with # in this example, as the values will most likely be different from my game to your game.

Now set “Supplies” value to 11000 .

Seriously, there is no point in going nuts with a lot of 9s, the game seems to cap the amount at 10.000. Maybe max amount will change with upgrades, later on?

Save the file and close Notepad++. If using 7zip, it should now ask you if you would like to update/overwrite the edited file, just click yes.

You CAN update “metadata.yaml” to reflect the new amount of supplies you got, but there is no point.

Extra Information

There might be more fun things you can edit in the save file, such as the bonuses the weapons/mech parts have. I have not tried that, not really interested to try either. I mean, once you have taken over 3-4 territories, you should have both Uncommon and Rare supplies.

Once you do, just save the game and edit yourself to 10k of each, now just go upgrade your base. Then go build some rare body parts for your mechs, and kick some cake or something.

You’ll be zipping around the map in no time. And hey, if the overheating stuff is annoying, just change the difficulty settings to some outrageous values to benefit yourself, and have more fun. Setting overheating to only 10% is effectively the same as turning it off. You can rapidly fire and dash about without worry of overheating. Ever. This does not seem to disable achievements either, so have fun.
