The Mining Drill is a Weapon in the Expansion Pack Genesis: Part 1.

Overview[]

The Mining Drill functions as a powerful harvesting tool that aids in the collection of just about every resource from any natural-spawning resource node. Utilizing Gasoline, it fires a laser to drill through the resources at a single point, at the risk of it overheating if used for too long, making it use a substantial amount of durability and force a brief break from using the drill.

Gives you a hefty weight reduction for harvested resources while it is equipped.

This tool is not equipable underwater and cannot be used for underwater resource gathering. It also cannot be used to harvest bodies.

The Mining Drill's resource output is only affected by server settings, therefore the Melee Damage of the Survivor using it will not make any difference.
