Icon Coal

Coal is one of the Resources in Frostpunk. It is used to keep the Generator, Steam Hubs, and Heaters running, so it will constantly be consumed.

Sources[ | ]

In addition to Scouting and Outpost Depots, the following locations are direct sources of Coal.

Coal Deposit[ | ]

Coal Deposits appear near the edge of the crater and can be harvested with a Coal Mine. This mine will produce a nearly infinite supply of Coal.

Coal Pile[ | ]

Coal Piles are the early method of acquiring coal. The city begins with several piles coal with a quantity of 500 Coal each. People can be assigned directly to the pile or to a nearby Gathering Post.

  • You may assign up to 15 people to each coal pile or 10 per gathering post.
  • The yield can be increased by Faster Gathering.

Buildings[ | ]

Coal Mine[ | ]

The Coal Mine can be used to mine Coal from Coal Deposits.

Coal Thumper[ | ]

The Coal Thumper can be used to infinitely create Coal Piles for harvest, however the thumper does not gather the Coal from these piles. These Coal Piles behave identically to those that spawn around the city at the start.

Charcoal Kiln[ | ]

The Charcoal Kiln can convert Wood to Coal.

Gathering Post[ | ]

The Gathering Post can be used to gather Coal from Coal Piles.

Dock[ | ]

The Dock is only available in The Last Autumn. It can be used to ship in and create coal piles on the shore infinitely until sea traffic stopped. These Coal Piles then need to be gathered by assigning workers directly, with Gathering Post or with Reloading Station.
