Chlorine (Cl)Mountain“Chlorine is an uncommon inorganic resource found in Starfield that can be used in a number of crafting outpost structures such as the Pharmaceutical Lab, Tick Turret Mk I, and Laser Turret Mk I.”
Chlorosilanes (SiH3Cl)MountainChlorosilanes are used for a variety of crafting and research projects such as Resource Extraction I, Optic, and Laser Mods I and II projects.”
Water (H20)Mountain“Water is one of the fundamental requirements for life which is used in research projects at the Research Laboratory”.
Tetraflourides (xF4)Mountain“Tetraflourides is used for research projects and to craft weapon mods such as Explosive Rounds and Hornet Nest.”
Lead (Pb)Mountain“Lead is a resource that is used in the majority of gear-crafting and base-building projects.”
Copper (Cu)Mountain“Copper is an uncommon inorganic resource used to unlock research projects, upgrade your gear, and build various Outpost.”
