How to Get Steel in Frostpunk
Coal might be how you keep the heat going in your Frostpunk civilization, but steel is how you’ll build a lot of crucial buildings. It’s easy to overlook its importance because you’re going to be clamoring for coal a lot, but don’t sleep on steel! Here’s how to get it within the game.
First, when you start any scenario, you’ll have your pickings of coal, wood, and steel that you can simply click on and send workers on over to get. You could also build a Gathering Post and workers from there will grab all nearby deposits. These will eventually deplete, though, so keep that in mind. They’re only meant to get you started.
The real meat for this resource will be from Steelworks. If you’re able to upgrade them through technology to make them the Steam Steelworks, you’ll be even better off.
Another way that’s a lot less secure is of course by sending an expedition out and striking some steel. The name of the location usually makes it obvious you’re about to uncover some. If it sounds like it’s a wreck of some machinery, you’re likely to run into steel.
That’s all there is to it! If you need any more help with Frostpunk, leave a comment below and we’ll help you out.
