Explosive powder is a composite resource in Astroneer. It is a resource that may be overlooked due to it only being used to create TNT and fireworks. The terrain tool with a good drill mod can eat through the hardest of rock with almost no effort and time required which often makes TNT something that isn’t worth the effort. It can be useful in taking out some of those pesky plants that you can’t get close enough to of course.
