The Planet Crafter – Iridium Ore Guide

Iridium Ore

Explosive Powder, a mid-to-late game Crafting resource, has iridium as one of its components. More crucially, it’s used to manufacture Iridium Rods, which are necessary for Terra-forming higher-tier Heating devices. Iridium is also required for Ore Extractors, a useful Building that automates ore collection.

Once you’ve unlocked the Launch Platform and fired the right rocket, you can harvest more Iridium from asteroids that fall onto the planet. With the correct type of Ore Extractor in the right position, you can receive a limitless supply, eliminating the need to rely on the unpredictability of falling rocks from the sky.

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
