Decoders, just like the Energy Converters and CPU Printers, bear an important-sounding name in the game: they are “Components”. However, they are not used for anything functional in the game. “Components” is just a fancy name for Callisto Protocol’s junk items.
The only thing you can really do with these is sell them for credits (at the Reforge), the in-game currency used for purchasing Health Injectors, Ammo, or any Guns you unlock with Schematics.
Where Do I Get More Decoders?
Or, perhaps you are looking for ways to find more Decoders for more Credits?
Unlike other types of junk items that are cheap and drop pretty much anywhere (Energy Converter), or are very expensive and much harder to find (CPU Printer), Decoder happens to have a little pattern that could help you — they tend to drop from Security Robots.
You should definitely organize your space to accommodate the Decoders once they start dropping regularly, to help you afford many of the important upgrades. Obviously, when the more valuable CPU Printers begin to drop for you, you should prioritize them instead.
However, if you have suprlus ammo or get a lot of health drops from enemies, there shouldn’t be a reason why you can’t drop those items and carry a couple more Decoders back to the Reforge instead.
