Coal is a resource found in the world. It can power Coal Generators and vehicles . It burns for 5.4 seconds and has a fuel value of 270MJ. Coal is mainly used for steel productions, along with many other mid-game items.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Coal may be located using the Resource Scanner after completing the tier 3 milestone "Coal Power". It can be mined by hand or by using any of the miners. It is the first resource which engineers has to explore a medium distance to reach out to.

*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 36 Coal Resource nodes in-game; 1 impure, 23 normal and 12 pure, 1 of those being blocked by removable boulders.[1] This means the upper limit of harvest rate is 23460 Coal/min (Mk.3 miners, 250% overclock, Mk.6 belt).[2]--The blocking boulders can be removed with Nobelisk Detonator.
