Deuterium is a resource.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Deuterium (D) is a resource and one of the earth elements.

Blue Deuterium Rich Plants gives a short-term boost to the player's jetpack when interacted with. This can help the player travel greater distances using the "jetpack + melee" combo.

Game description[edit | edit source]

A stable hydrogen isotope used heavily in both small-scale fusion reactors and neutron-scattering shield technology.

Deuterium very rarely occurs naturally. Most of the galaxy's supply comes from the processing of Di-hydrogen and Tritium in Refiners.

Source[edit | edit source]

Deuterium can be obtained in a variety of ways:

  • purchased from terminals or NPCs
  • refining process
  • dismantling Deuterium-based technology

Refining it requires a medium or large refiner. Deuterium can be refined using a Refiner with the following ingredients:

  • SUBSTANCE.LAUNCHSUB.1.png Di-hydrogen x1  +  SUBSTANCE.ROCKETSUB.png Tritium x1  →  SUBSTANCE.LAUNCHSUB.2.png Deuterium x1  ("Di-hydrogen Cycling", 0.6 sec./unit output)

Use[edit | edit source]

Crafting[edit source]

Deuterium is used as an ingredient for crafting the following products:

Refining[edit source]

Deuterium is not used as an ingredient for refining using a Refiner.

Cooking[edit source]

Deuterium is not used as an ingredient for cooking using a Nutrient Processor.

Additional information[edit | edit source]

The Deuterium-rich plants mentioned above originally produced deuterium when harvested, but this was patched out soon after the initial NEXT release.

Because of this, Deuterium has to be obtained using other means.
