In-game description

Iron is a raw resource in Foxhole used to progress your Faction in the weapon and equipment research.

Acquisition[]

It can be obtained by mining Iron nodes on a Salvage Field where it occasionally spawns when a mined Salvage node splits. Note that you usually get a bigger Iron node from the first Salvage node split. You can expect to gather around 200-300 raw Iron on average per Salvage field, but the number can vary depending on outside parameters.

Iron can also be obtained from mining Rare Resource Nodes.

Mining Iron Nodes[]

Iron Nodes can be mined with Hammers, Sledge Hammers or Harvesters. Like Aluminum the presence of Iron is determined randomly as the Salvage Field respawns.

Purpose[]

Iron can be refined into Iron Alloy in a Refinery. Iron Alloy in turn can be used at an Engineering Center to research vehicle Prototype Kits.
