4x Copper
Craft At:
Vehicle bay

Description[edit | edit source]

The crane is an item that can be placed on a Rover or Truck and uses 4 attachments. With a Drill Head attached it can be used to mine resources faster.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

It is crafted in the Vehicle bay with 4 Copper. NOTE: The vehicle must be in front of the Vehicle Bay and must have 4 free Attachments in order to be able to craft it.

Attachments[edit | edit source]

The Crane has 4 Attachments: 2 on the head for the Drill Head (other things can be attached) and 2 on the side which are not usable as they are intended as storage for the resources mined by the Drill Head.

Controls[edit | edit source]

In order to control the Crane you must sit in its own seat (not the vehicle one) located at the base of the Crane. The Crane is operated by mouse and always points toward the terrain for easier mining. As of patch 119, resources collected by the Crane will attach to any open attachments on whatever vehicle you are using. If you attempt to collect more resources than you have attachments, the newly collected resources will pop off the crane and onto the ground.
