Argon is an Atmospheric resource in Astroneer. A gas that is known for its attractive colour in real life, you will not be able to create any cool coloured items when you harvest the gas. It can be found on two planets in high enough volumes. Argon is critical in the construction of Steel.
How Do You Get Argon?
In order to get argon gas, you will need to construct an Atmospheric Condenser. This is a machine that will allow you to extract it from the air of any planet that contains this resource in the atmosphere.
What Planets Contain Argon?
The table below will show all of the planets in Astroneer with the current PPU of argon gas that can be found on each planet. Not all planets contain this resource. Those marked with a PPU of 0 do not contain any.
What Is Argon Used To Create?
Argon is only used in the creation of one single item in the chemistry station. For late-game structures and items, some of the composite resources are highly valuable. You may not have an immediate use for this resource, but it is worth capturing some while you are on one of the planets if possible to save a return trip at a later date.
