Obtaining[edit | edit source]
Iron ore can be located using the Resource Scanner shortly after the engineer leaves their drop-pod. It is currently the most common type of ore in the game. It can be mined by hand or by using any of the miners.
- Produced Items per Minute
|Miner MK1||Miner MK2||Miner MK3|
|Total Iron Nodes|
|Type||Number||Rate Mk.3||Rate Mk.3 at 250 %|
|Total||105||33600||64260* / 84000|
There are currently 105 Iron resource nodes in-game; 24 impure, 34 normal, and 47 pure, 2 of those being blocked by cracked boulders which can be removed by Nobelisk Detonator. This means the upper limit of harvest rate is 64260 Iron ore/min (Mk.3 miners, 250% overclock, Mk.6 belt).
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.
