Dynamite can be found deep within planets lying on the ground, or more often in the Backpack of dead explorers. In rare circumstances, it can also be found on the surface of Exotic Planets. As of 122, Dynamite is used to destory uneeded modules and vehicles.

Use[edit | edit source]

When placed, an action button will appear above the dynamite that, when clicked, starts a short timer causing the Dynamite to explode shortly after. The explosion can be fatal to players, including those on a multiplayer server. Terrain and resources in a small sphere around the explosion site will be cleared instantly. It does not drop the Resources mined and is therefore not useful for clearing deposits of the rarer materials such as Lithium, or Titanium.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

As of right now, there is no way to craft dynamite. It must be found. Although, in the beta version 122 there is a way to craft it within your backpack with aluminum after unlocking it through research.

Known Bugs[edit | edit source]

If activating a Dynamite found in the backpack of a dead astronaut, it will explode on top of you as if it were in your Backpack.[citation needed]
