Subnautica Raw Materials Guide – Best Farming Spots, Minerals, Flora, Corals, Seeds

Crafting is an integral part of Subnautica but to craft, you first need to find the required Raw Materials. Without the Raw Materials, you will have nothing to craft with. You may be running into some trouble trying to find the various different Raw Materials as there are so many.

This Subnautica Raw Materials Guide will tell you the precise location of where you can all of the Raw Materials in the game. Not only will we tell you about the location but we will also tell you about the indicators that you need to watch out for when traversing those areas in search of the Raw Materials.

You can also acquire these items by using PC Console Commands which you can find by heading to the link.

Subnautica Raw Materials

Subnautica is a very diverse game. It has a lot of different Raw Materials which you would be able to find if you search for them. There is everything from Minerals to Corals to Seeds.

We will be covering everything in this Subnautica Raw Materials. A lot of the materials that you see can be farmed in multiple different locations so we will be sure to mention all of them. This will allow you to find them near your base rather than having to go far away and risk getting devoured by a predator.
