This article is about Large Resource Deposits in Subnautica. To see this subject's article on the Below Zero Wiki, click here.

Large Resource Deposits are large quantities of a single Raw Material found in Subnautica. Unlike stone outcrops, the materials cannot be harvested by hand; instead they must be broken down using the Prawn Suit Drill Arm.

Trivia

  • Kyanite is one of the few resources in Subnautica that is not guaranteed to eject smaller pieces when drilling chunks from a large node. This is not a bug.
    • On the other hand, there is a 0.000000471431432% chance for a large Kyanite deposit to yield 22 Kyanite pieces.
  • There are three Large Resource Deposit models that currently do not appear in Subnautica: the large Diamond, Ruby and Crystalline Sulfur deposits.[1][2]
  • There used to be Large Resource Deposits of Diamonds generated on the map, before raw resources got new models.
  • Over the course of the development of Subnautica, the models for Large Resourse Deposits have often changed.
