Deuterium is a resource.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Deuterium (D) is a resource and one of the earth elements.

There are blue plants scattered accross planetary surfaces that are described as "Deuterium-rich plants". However, interacting with these plants no longer grant the player the Deuterium resource. (They did give deuterium at one point; it is unknown 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).

Bug (1.50): The game description is misleading, as it does not mention that the refinement process requires an additional resource (Tritium), beside Di-hydrogen. Please report this bug here.

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) ingredients:


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