How to get Iron Ore in Last Day on Earth

Iron is really easy to obtain in Last Day on Earth. It’s easily obtainable at Level 1. Start by heading to one of the mining locations such as Limestone Ridge, or Cliffs if you’re a higher level and well geared. Make sure you have a picaxe too and supplies such as food and weapons.

Walk around until you see rocks that have a silver ore in them, and mine them. Each rock will give you around 3 Iron ore, which is plenty. Gather as much as you can and head back home.

How to turn Iron Ore into Iron Bars in Last Day on Earth

To turn all the Iron Ore you’ve collected into Iron Bars, you will need to create a furnace. Furnaces can be crafted with 10 Stone and 5 Iron Ore, and you can have 2 set up inside your base, or outside. In a furnace, you can smelt Iron, Steel, Titan and Tungsten bars.

For every 2 Iron Ore in Last Day on Earth, you will receive 1 Iron Bar back. You can also use 4 pieces of Scrap Metal to create Iron Bars, however using Ore is easier. Put all of your Ore into the top slot of the furnace, with a burnable material such as Logs in the bottom. Iron Ore will convert into Iron Bars every 4 minutes.
