Dynamite can be found deep within planets lying on the ground, or more often on the backpacks of dead explorers. In rare circumstances, it can also be found on the surface of Exotic Planets. It can also be researched and crafted at the Backpack's Printer using 1 Aluminum.
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.
- Destroys any modules, platforms, trees, and other game objects the dynamite attaches to, with the exception of the Habitat.
- 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.
- Dynamite can stick to the player, and removing it might be really difficult without assistance from another player.
- Holding dynamite that is exploded by other dynamite may leave your character stuck holding nothing.
