How to Get Wood in Frostpunk
Frostpunk is all about staying alive for as long as you can in some really harsh winter. Making sure you’ve stockpiled adequate amounts of supplies is a huge part of that. Wood, steel, and coal are vital, but how do you come across some of them? Here’s a guide for wood!
So, to start, you’ll always have random patches (or deposits) of resources. Wood crates will be what you’re really looking for when you first start any scenario. You can send workers over to them and collect all that they supply, but keep in mind that they’re only meant to be temporary.
The true jackpot will be with Sawmills. You’ll need to research the technology under the Resources tree, but once you do, you can go ahead and build a sawmill near frozen trees to automatically harvest them. Keep in mind, though, that you need to build it near the trees, and they need to fall within the circle around the building. Once that’s all depleted, you need to salvage it and build another to get some more. Rinse and repeat as much as you need.
Another way to get wood is by sending an expedition out and coming across it. This can happen randomly or you can actively chase locations that sound like they have a lot of trees.
That’s really all there is to getting wood in Frostpunk! If you need more help with the game, let us know in the comments below.
