How to Acquire Nano Structuring Chips in Rimworld?

If you are wondering how to get a Rimworld nano structuring chip, the answer is very straightforward and there is only one way: Apocritons. Apocriton is a mechanoid added with the Biotech DLC and its sole purpose is to drop you nano structuring chips. You can farm nano structuring chips for further technologies by summoning this mechanoid many times. But we don’t think you’ll need more than 3.

Rimworld Nano Structuring Chip

You can get nano structuring chips by using a mechanitor to summon an Apocriton threat. Besides a mechanitor, you will also need a mechband dish. You have to destroy this dish in the summoning process. You must also have completed High Mechtech research to summon an Apocriton. After summoning, you must kill this boss-like threat. As a result, defeating an Apocriton will drop a nano structuring chip.


And we have come to the end of another article. Today, we told you how you can acquire the Rimworld nano structuring chip item and in which crafts this resource will be used. This resource is really used in a lot of areas and it has a huge place in the game. We wish you a day full of technology, and production. Don’t forget to have fun and take care!
