Where to Get Aluminum Rods in Lightyear Frontier

Aluminum Rods can be found at the base of mountains and cliffsides. They can be recognized as a bundle of silver rods sticking out of the cliffside while marked as Aluminum Deposit once players get near them.

Some of the earliest areas that players can farm the resource include the Pine Heights in the northwest and southeast of The Meadows. A few deposits are grouped near each other in these locations, so make sure you have enough space to carry them all back to your base.

Since it is an important resource at the beginning of the game, players do not need any special upgrades to harvest Aluminum Rods. Players only need the base Spike Saw tool to gather the resources. The Spike Punch ability can quickly destroy the Aluminum Deposits and then players can walk over the Aluminum Rods to pick them up.
