The new survival game Icarus, by DayZ inventor Dean ‘Rocket’ Hall, transports you to different planets. One of the most important resources for survival is oxygen, which you can easily break down. We’ll tell you in our guide how to do it.
This is why oxygen is so essential: In order to survive the expeditions in the survival game Icarus, you have to be able to breathe naturally. To do this, it is not only significant to wear your spacesuit at all times, but also to pay attention to your Oxygen-level. If it is slowly running out, you have to get new ones so as not to suffocate.
This is how you get Oxygen in Icarus
In order to get oxygen in Icarus, you have to collect or mine the resource Oxite. Oxite can be found scattered around the world like small lumps of ore or as small stones near rivers or in forests. Both are bluish-colored and can be recognized quickly.
While the small Oxite stones can easily be picked up from the ground, you have to mine the larger ones with a pickaxe.
How to use the Oxite: Once you have collected the Oxite, you can easily add it to your quick bar via your inventory and use it by pressing the appropriate button. Otherwise, you can also put the Oxite directly into the oxygen slot of your spacesuit in order to refill your oxygen supply.
This way you use the Oxygen in Icarus more efficiently
The yield from the Oxite is okay, but not very efficient when used directly. However, as the game progresses, you will be able to build an Oxidizer. A rather simple device that allows you to draw more oxygen from the gathered Oxite.
You will need these materials for the Oxidizer:
- 8 x sticks
- 12 x fiber
- 20 x leather
- 10 x bones
However, the Oxidizer cannot be taken with you and remains in the place where you set it up. So you should still take a handful of Oxite with you on your travels, so you don’t suffocate on the way.
