The Tar Extractor is a craftable Structure introduced in the Shipwrecked DLC. It is found in the Nautical Tab and requires 2 Coconuts, 4 Bamboo and 4 Limestones to craft. Tar Extractors can only be placed on top of Tar Slicks. They will extract Tar and drop it at the output end every 2 min (4 per Day). When fully fueled, a Tar Extractor will last for two days, producing a total of 8 Tar. They can be refueled self-sufficiently by using some of the extracted Tar.

Prototype.png Tips[]

  • As Tar Slicks can only be found in Medium and Deep Ocean, the player will be exposed to Waves when interacting with a Tar Extractor. Sea Walls can be built for protection.
  • Alternatively, the player can create Tar Slicks with the Quacken Drill, providing easier access to Tar.

Placeholder.png Trivia[]

  • The Tar Extractor was added to the Shipwrecked DLC more than a year after its official completion in the Home Sea Home update, after being tested in a beta branch for several months.
