Caterium Ore is a semi-rare mid-game ore found in the world. It is smelted into Caterium Ingots for further processing.

Unlock[edit | edit source]

Picking up a piece of Caterium Ore unlocks the Caterium Research Tree in the M.A.M., which also unlocks the scanning of this ore. If the player choose not to research it, its scanner will still be unlocked at Tier 6.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

The resource node of Caterium Ore can be located with a Resource Scanner once unlocked. It can be harvested by hand (default E) or by placing a Miner on a resource node. Trace amount of it can be found scattered around the world in deposit form.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Certain Caterium Ore nodes are blocked by Boulders that need to be detonated before you can place a Miner. However, Portable Miners can be placed between and around the Boulders. You can use a Nobelisk Detonator to detonate those boulders.
