General Information

Thorium Deposits were specialized Deposits which allowed you to obtain the uncommon resource, Thorium, required for most advanced upgrades and builds, such as Level 10 units and Level 5 or higher Barricades. Historically, they were the only way to obtain Thorium besides looting player bases.

Unlike Metal and Oil Deposits, Thorium Deposits were temporary, have a finite amount of Thorium remaining in that particular Deposit, and will drain their resources when obtained by the player. They also drained their resources even when unowned (owned by Rogue Faction), meaning that they have to be seized as quickly as possible at the moment they spawn. They were spawned in batches periodically, initially at a relatively low rate, and later quite frequently every day.

Thorium Deposits extract Thorium at a much greater rate than all Metal and Oil Deposits, but since the Game Update of Sep 05, 2014, Verkraft Thorium Compounds have been introduced, allowing you to loot large amounts of Thorium instantly like looting Metal and Oil from Rogue Factions.

They were fully phased out on Game Update of Jan 28, 2016, and were completely replaced by permanent Verkraft Thorium Compounds, which now grants Thorium loot ranging from 100,000 to 50,000,000.

Defending Thorium Deposits

Locating Thorium Deposits

  • Recon Satellite can be used to locate Thorium Deposits.
