Notes[edit | edit source]

  • During a Sandstorm, Sand is added to the inventory if the player stays outside.
  • A Doedicurus is useful for gathering a lot of Sand.
  • A Rock Elemental is also good for harvesting sand.
  • Sand has a high weight count (full stack = 50 weight) as both sand and stone are gathered from mining rocks on scorched earth it's highly advisable that you level up weight or keep a high capacity dino with you at all times.
