Astroneer - Ammonium

Astroneer Ammonium

Ammonium is a natural resource that can be found on every planet in the game. This is a good thing as if you ever find yourself stranded on a planet, ammonium will save your life as it allows you to produce a rocket to make your way back home.

Ammonium is not the most common resource and does not appear in large amounts but it does not appear too often for crafting, making the quantity at which it spawns less of an issue.

Where To Find Ammonium
