Thankfully, there are a few areas where players can locate Nickel Ore. It is mostly used to upgrade the game's vehicles, but those upgrades can be the difference of getting stuck and expanding your exploration.

Only seven Nickel Ore pieces are needed to craft everything players need in Subnautica: Below Zero. That may not seem like a lot, but the items upgraded are a pretty integral part to the adventure:

  • Prawn Suit Jump Jet Upgrade
  • Seatruck Depth Upgrade MK3
  • Prawn Suit Depth Module MK2

In order to find the Nickel Ore pieces, players can look in a few different areas. They can also be acquired from Sea Monkeys when they are around to offer players resources.

Nickel Ore can be found in the following areas:

  • Crystal Caves (Main Crystal Caves & Crystal Caves Fissure)
  • Deep Lilypads Cave
  • Fabricator Caversn
  • Lilypads Crevice

The safest place for Sunbautica: Below Zero players to find Nickel Ore is in the Lilypads Biome. Heading about 1070 meters from the drop pod starting point, players will come across an underwater structure.

This structure will have a metal piece, almost like a tail, hanging out of it. There will be a channel that leads down. Follow it directly below, and search the area for Nickel Ore.

Subnautica: Below Zero players can bring a Mineral Detector. That will scan the area for Nickel Ore, leading the players right to the pieces that need to be collected. Just beware of Squidsharks if swimming freely. They aren't as dangerous as some of the fauna in other locations, though.
