Sodium Nitrate is a resource.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Sodium Nitrate (Na+) is a resource and one of the catalyst elements.

Game description[edit | edit source]

An advanced catalyst, useful for charging defensive technologies such as shields or hazard protection.

Created in a Refiner, or occasionally found in crystalline form on a planet's surface.

Offers a substantially improved energy-per-gram ratio over regular Sodium.
