Coal is a common resource found in the world which is used for advanced smelting or for power generation. It can power Coal Generators and vehicles . It burns for 4 seconds in a coal generator, with a fuel value of 300MJ.
Obtaining[edit | edit source]
The resource node of Coal 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.

|Miner MK1||Miner MK2||Miner MK3|
Number of its resource nodes as below:
|Total Coal Nodes|
|Type||Number||Rate Mk.3||Rate Mk.3 at 250 %|
|Total||51||15360||31680* / 38400|
- 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 mining rate is 31680/min.
