Radioactive Ore is a resource found in Radioactive Nodes.


The chance of finding Radioactive Nodes in either location increases as one goes deeper into the mine, and also with Daily Luck and Luck Buffs. It is most strongly affected by Daily Luck, and only slightly affected by depth in the mine and Luck Buffs.[1]


Radioactive Ore can be smelted in a Furnace to create a Radioactive Bar. The smelting requires 5 Radioactive Ore and 1 Coal and takes 10 in-game hours.
