Subnautica: Below Zero – Where to find Silver

Gotta find that early silver!

Resources are plentiful in the freezing oceans of Subnautica: Below Zero, but finding them is another thing entirely. But to Fabricate equipment, modules, and much more, these raw materials must be found and stored for future use.

One such resource is Silver, which is used for Basic Fabrication. The best place to find Silver when you first need it is the following.

Nearby, your starting location of the game, at your Drop Pop, you should see a looming curved ice formation. But due to everyone's location being slightly different, here are the coordinates for this area: -167.9 1.9 104.4.

Head southeast from those coordinates till you start entering Creepvine territory about 230+ meters away from the starting location. These are the yellow wavy vines that appear on the seafloor. Now you want to keep a lookout for openings on the seafloor, which will lead you to the Artic Kelp Caves. The coordinates for a cave location are 2.8 -87.6 -139.2.

When in the caves, lookout for Argentite Outcrop on the walls, as these are what you have to break open for the chance of it being Silver Ore, but there is a higher chance of it being Titanium.

Ore deposits do not respawn upon collecting, so repeatedly going back to the same area to farm does not work.

It's very easy to get lost in these caves, so be mindful of where entrances above are located, and if you need oxygen, some plants provide small oxygen bubbles. Keep scouting for openings and explore!

There are a plethora of other biomes that you can find Silver Ore:

  • Biomes
    • Arctic Spires
    • Koppa Mining Site
    • Thermal Spires
    • Lilypad Islands
    • Crystal Caves

About the Author

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
