Where to Find Gold in Subnautica
Gold is a very common raw material in Subnautica. Almost anywhere you go, you should be able to strike Gold, even unknowingly at times. However, if you’re actively seeking Gold because there are specific items you wish to craft, these are the places you should turn to. You should be able to find Gold hidden inside Sandstone Outcrops, Shale Outcrops, and Large Resource Deposits in the following places:
- Blood Kelp Zone
- Bone Fields Caves
- Bulb Zone
- Crag Field
- Crash Zone Mesas
- Deep Sparse Reef
- Grand Reef
- Grassy Plateaus
- Jellyshroom Cave
- Kelp Forest
- Lost River
- Bones Fields
- Ghost Forest
- Tree Cove
- Mushroom Forest
- Safe Shallows
- Sea Treader’s Path
- Sparse Reef
- Underwater Islands
You can also find Gold on the walls and on the seabed in the Inactive Lava Zone.
Those are pretty much the locations in Subnautica that contain Gold. As you can see, this raw material is very common, so farming for them shouldn’t be too much of a bother for you.
Just take note that you’ll still fall prey under the percentage game. There is about a 25% chance that you’ll harvest Gold from Sandstone Outcrops, a 30% chance from Shale Outcrops, and about 10% chance you’ll get them from Large Resource Deposits.
