Obtaining[edit | edit source]
Resource acquisition[edit | edit source]
Uranium can be harvested by hand (default E) in trace amounts from resource deposits scattered across the world, or from inexhaustible resource nodes on which Miners can be constructed to extract automatically. Additonally, Lizard Doggos will ocassionally bring it when tamed.
- Items produced per minute
Number of Uranium resource nodes is as follows:
|Mk.3 mining rate|
at 250 %
Extraction energy[edit | edit source]
It takes about 26.09 MJ to extract 1 Uranium.
Grass Fields cave node[edit | edit source]
Located in the long tunnel connecting the northern most and lowest of the grasslands to the high northern and upper part of the Eastern Dune Forest. Small groups of Small Stingers guard both ends of the tunnel, each group guarding a Power Slug there.
The node is located inside a large cavern in the middle of the tunnel. This cavern contains a large group of Small Stingers guarding a Power Slug on a cliff and an Elite Stinger guarding the node itself, with an additional Large Stinger in the tunnel when approaching from the north.
Swamp cave node[edit | edit source]
Located behind the large waterfall in the swamp. Ground level access to the cave is located on the right side, guarded by a few Flying Crab Hatchers. Several Uranium deposits line this entrance to the cavern.
Red Jungle node[edit | edit source]
Located in a small depression in the center of the Red Plateau, near center of the eastern half of the Red Jungle.
Rocky Desert node[edit | edit source]
Located on top of the tallest natural peak in the map, on the top of a rocky spire in the northeastern part of the Rocky Desert, along with a purple Power Slug, requiring considerable vertical scaling to reach.
Aside from the lone Flying Crab Hatcher on the plateau below the peak, this node is unguarded. This is the only impure Uranium Node.

- Deposits of Uranium can be found in clusters, mainly in end-game areas such as Red Bamboo Fields and around some Crash Sites.
