Iron ore is a base crafting component used as a first ingredient for many recipes.[1] Iron ore is produced by Miners built on top of an Iron Resource Node.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Iron ore may be located using the Resource Scanner shortly after the engineer leaves their drop-pod. It can be mined by hand or by using any of the miners.

There are currently 96 Iron resource nodes in-game; 24 impure, 35 normal, and 37 pure, 2 of those being blocked by a large and currently irremovable rock.[2] This means the upper limit of harvest rate is 59.700 Iron ore/min (Mk.3 miners, 250% overclock, Mk.6 belt).[3]

Total Iron Nodes
TypeNumberRate Mk2Rate Mk2 at 250 %
Impure 24 1440 3600
Normal 35 4200 10500
Pure 37 8880 22200
Total 96 14520 30750* / 36300

*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.

Harvesting[edit | edit source]

With a Miner Mk.1, 30 impure iron ore, 60 iron ore or 120 pure iron ore is produced every minute using 5 MW of power.
