Harvesting and Materials in Pacific Drive

So, you’re deep into Pacific Drive and looking to up your game, right? Well, grabbing resources smartly is your golden ticket. I’m here to give you the lowdown on snagging the goodies you need, exploring different ways to get your hands on them, and keeping things moving smoothly.

Starting Loot:

Let’s kick off with the basics. Apart from the usual “Starting Loot” found across different zones or biomes, there are a bunch of key resources you’ve gotta keep an eye out for.

Pressurized Cartridges:

Ever wondered where to find Pressurized Cartridges? Hit up TVs and sodium vapor lights. But remember, you need to be a scrapper to harvest them.

Lead:

For Lead, peek inside Lead plating at research outposts in the zones or near anomalies. These spots are often gold mines with lab computers that are a valuable source of Lead.

Light Bulbs:

Light Bulbs can be crafted or found in lights. And guess what? A vacuum cleaner can be your best friend in gathering them.

Cloth:

In the early to mid-game, snagging Cloth from lockers, trunks, bags, and RDA crates is easy peasy. But as you dive deeper, you’ll need more. Trading electronics for cloth at the pacemaker Anomaly, one for one, is a smart swap.

Thermosap Crystals:

Caught a glimpse of Thermosap Crystals’ red glow? You’ll find them in marsh zones. Need just a few? Armored cars sometimes drop them so you won’t have to get your feet wet. Plus, tourists might just leave you some if they go boom, especially if you toss a lit flare their way from a safe distance. That’s the best way to detonate them.

Those glowing pink balls, Marsh eggs, are tucked away on scrap cars near big glowing orbs in the marsh zone. Grabbing them by hand works, but a vacuum sucks them up way faster. You’ll need a bunch, 80 to be exact, for a blow torch upgrade.

Swamp coral thrives on Neon Reefs, those big, obsidian-like rocks glowing purple. A vacuum can gather them, but shine a light, and they’ll pop right out for you. Just park your car close with the headlights on, but keep an eye on your electrical gear if you’re parked in water too long.

Alright, that’s a wrap on some of the resources waiting for you out there. This isn’t everything, but it’s a solid start to get you going. Remember, LIM Magnets aren’t for harvesting, but you can find or make them with scrap at LIM Magnet transfusors deep in the zone. They work on a 4:1 scrap to magnet ratio, so keep an eye on the display for how many times you can use them.

Now, about explosives. Got what it takes to handle them safely? Deep in the zone, you’ll find wooden boxes packed with them, usually hanging around other anomalies or structures. And for those after Olympium fragments, keep your eyes peeled for tall purple pillars glowing subtly. You’ll need a tier 2 pneumatic hammer to mine them, and each pillar could give you 2-5 Olympium crystals, which turn into 1-4 fragments each.
