Chemfuel is a resource used to craft explosive weapons and ammunition as well as fuel the chemfuel powered generators and pod launchers. In spite of the description, it is in no way necessary for neither the construction nor fueling of your ship.
If chemfuel catches fire, it will spark briefly before exploding into flames. The higher the quantity of chemfuel in the stack, the larger the explosion. With a little creativity, careful placement of chemfuel stockpiles can be used as components in base defense.
- Chemfuel can be crafted by processing wood or organic material at a refinery
- You can milk it from tamed boomalopes
- Obtain it from powered Infinite chemreactors.
Due to its volatile nature, it should be stored safely away from flammables and electric circuits, in small compartments which contain small stock so an explosion won't destroy your entire stock.
In earlier versions, Chemfuel could be acquired by using a Deep drill. This was removed in Beta 19.
