Uranium is a rare late-game resource found in the world. It is involved in the Uranium Fuel Rod production, and gives off radiation.


Resource acquisition

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.

Extraction energy

It takes about 14.85 MJ to extract 1 Uranium. Further reading: Extraction energy

Resource Node location

Grass Fields cave node

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

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.

Numerous Stingers are in the cave, including an Elite Stinger guarding the node itself. Further back in the cave is a second Elite Stinger guarding a Purple Power Slug.

Red Jungle node

Located in a small depression in the center of the Red Plateau, near center of the eastern half of the Red Jungle.

This node is heavily guarded by five Large Stingers at the node itself and two Alpha Spitters on the cliff right above the node. In addition to those at the node itself there is another Large Stinger on a small plateu just north of the node, two more Large Stingers on a small plateau southwest of the node, and two Elite Stingers through a small tunnel west of the node.

Rocky Desert node

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.

  • Tamed Lizard Doggos can bring Uranium at any game stage. Unlike Uranium Waste, it can be safely disposed to the trash slot without picking it up.
  • Deposits of Uranium can be found in clusters, mainly in end-game areas such as Red Bamboo Fields and around some Crash Sites.
