Where to find Iron Ore in Icarus

Looking for this?

There are numerous resources to find and collect in Icarus. As a survival game, you will constantly need to find materials so that you can survive. One important resource that you will need is iron. But before you're able to use it, you'll need to know how to find it.

To find iron ore in Icarus, you will have to seek out caves, open or hidden. Inside you will find iron ore that you can mine with a pickaxe. As you mine it, the ore will deplete, and it will automatically be added to your inventory. You can also find iron outside of caves with less frequency.

You will need a pickaxe of some kind to mine iron ore. Without it, you will not be able to get any iron. Iron is an incredibly versatile resource that players should absolutely seek out. It can be used to craft tools and weapons, which will come in handy as players try to survive.

Players should be wary when entering caves for iron, as there can be dangerous mobs residing in them. While getting iron is extremely important, players should not risk their lives needlessly trying to get it.

    1. Hi! We’ve updated the article to be more accurate, but you have a much greater chance of finding iron inside caves. Iron ore can appear outside of caves, typically right at the entrance, but this is less common than finding it inside caves.
