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

  1. 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.
  1. There are four Large Resource Deposit models that currently do not appear in Subnautica: the large Diamond, Ruby, Crystalline Sulfur and Mercury deposits.[1][2]
  1. There used to be Large Resource Deposits of Diamonds generated on the map, before raw resources got new models.
  2. Over the course of the development of Subnautica, the models for Large Resourse Deposits have often changed.
  3. Large Silver Deposits have been found in the Jellyshroom Cave, but it is unknown if this is intentional or a bug.
