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.

*Note: The maximum rate with a Miner Mk.3 at 250 % is 1200/min, whereas a Belt Mk.5 can only carry 780/min, so the maximum mined number is not possible to transport.

There are currently 16 Caterium Resource nodes in-game; 10 normal, and 6 pure, 1 each of normal and pure being blocked by removable boulders.[1] This means the upper limit of harvest rate is 10680 Caterium Ore/min (Mk.3 miners, 250% overclock, Mk.6 belt).[2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
