Foxhole Wiki

Iron can be refined into Iron Alloy, which is used in the prototyping process for vehicles.
In-game description

Iron is a raw resource in Foxhole used to progress your Faction's Technology research.


It can be obtained by mining Salvage 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.

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.


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.
