Where to Find Titanium Ingots in Subnautica

We show you how you can get hold of titanium ingots fast, and what you can use them for.

Subnautica's early game has you working with titanium ore a lot, but it won't be long before you'll be building bigger, better things - and that's when you need to start using titanium ingots. We can show you where to find them and how they're best used.

How to Get Titanium Ingots

Titanium ingots can't actually be found in the open world, they have to be crafted in your pod's fabricator from regular titanium - ten pieces, to be exact. Select the fabricator and check the materials tab at the top, then go into the basic materials menu, just like where you'd convert salvage to regular titanium. The option to craft ingots should be marked by three rounded, metal cylinders.

Consequently, making ingots is just a matter of finding regular titanium efficiently. There are several ways to do this - convert metal salvage found in wreckage sites, break open limestone outcrops on the ocean floor, or by scanning fragments of equipment you already have the blueprints for.

Once you have ten pieces of titanium, you can put them in the fabricator and convert them into a set of ingots. Keep in mind that once you do, you can't convert them back, so make sure that you need ingots more than regular titanium.
