Deuterium is a resource.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Deuterium (D) is a resource.

There are blue plants scattered accross planetary surfaces that are described as "Deuterium-rich plants". However, interacting with these plants does not grant the player the Deuterium resource (it is unkown if this is on purpose or if it's a bug). Instead, the plant gives a short-term boost to the player's jetpack when interacted with. This can help the player travel greater distances using the "jetpack + melee" combo.

Because of this, the element Deuterium, which is required for some craftable items, has to be obtained from alternative means (see below).

Game description[edit | edit source]

A stable hydrogen isotope used heavily in both small-scale fusion reactors and neutron-scattering shield technology.

Deuterium very rarely occurs naturally. Most of the galaxy's supply comes from the processing of Di-hydrogen in Refiners.

Sources[edit | edit source]

Deuterium can be obtained in a variety of ways:

  • purchased from terminals or NPCs
  • harvested from some plants in outposts
  • refining process
  • dismantling Deuterium-based technology

Refining[edit | edit source]

This operation requires a medium or large refiner.

Deuterium can be refined using a Refiner with the following (combinations of) resources:


Deuterium is used as a blueprint ingredient when crafting the following products:

    Additional information[edit | edit source]

    • Up to version 1.54, the game incorrectly stated that Deuterium could be directly obtained from refining Di-hydrogen. However, this operation produces Di-hydrogen Jelly instead. (Need to check if this has been changed in version 1.5).
    • 8/21/18 - Game still indicates you can make Deuterium from Di-hydrogen, which is still incorrect.
    • 8/27/18 - You can no longer make Deuterium from two inputs of Di-hydrogen.
