EXO Chips are essential resources used in the Jet Powered Update to Astroneer. They are used in various crafting recipes, including the powerful Hydrazine Jet Pack. This guide will provide a step-by-step approach to obtaining EXO Chips effectively in Astroneer.
Step 1: Understand EXO Chip Locations
EXO Chips cannot be obtained through normal resource-gathering methods. Instead, they are found in ship wreckage and debris sites scattered around all the planets.
Step 2: Equip the Necessary Tools
Before you start to explore, make sure you are well-equipped. Have on hand:
- Portable Oxygenator: To ensure you don’t run out of oxygen while exploring.
- Drill Mod: At times, the EXO Chips may be buried beneath the wreckage or debris which will need digging.
- Worklight: Illuminate the dark areas, especially when exploring wrecks in caves.
- Jetpack or Rover: For fast and efficient exploration.
Step 3: Explore the Planet
Start your exploration of shipwrecks and debris. Search around crash sites, dig through piles of rubble, and keep a keen eye out for the distinctive, shiny green EXO Chips.
Step 4: Collect EXO Chips
Once you find an EXO Chip, pick it up and put it into your backpack. Remember, EXO Chips are non-renewable resources. Once collected from a crash site, they do not regenerate.
Step 5: Use EXO Chips
Once collected, EXO Chips can be used to craft various high-end items, most notably the Hydrazine Jet Pack. You can also trade them at the Trade Platform for other resources, if necessary.
Finding EXO Chips involves a lot of exploration and a bit of luck, but the benefits of acquiring and using them are tremendous and well worth the effort. Happy exploring!
