Research[edit | edit source]

Researching 25 Caterium Ore inside of M.A.M. will result in Caterium Technologies being unlockable at Tier 3.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Caterium ore may be located using the Resource Scanner after it has been researched in the M.A.M. and after unlocking Caterium Technologies at Tier 3. It can be mined by hand or by using any of the Miners.

There are currently 18 Caterium Resource nodes in-game; 13 normal, and 5 pure, 1 each of normal and pure being blocked by removable boulders.[1] This means the upper limit of harvest rate is 10.800 Caterium Ore/min (Mk.3 miners, 250% overclock, Mk.6 belt).[2]

*Note: The maximum rate with a Miner MK2 at 250 % is 600/min, whereas a Belt MK4 can only carry 450/min, so the maximum mined number is not possible to transport.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Caterium Ore may have been the replacement of gold, but gold is still able to be found in the world.
  • Some Caterium Ore is covered by Round semi-broken Boulders that need to be removed before you can place a Miner. However Portable Miners can be placed between and around the Boulders. There are, however, places to mine the ore that is not covered by Boulders. You can also use a Nobelisk Detonator to remove those boulders.
