How To Get Clay In Grounded

To get Clay in Grounded, you'll have to use your shovel. There's no other way to get Clay, so having and using a shovel is critical here. (If you don't have one yet, you'll need sprigs, crude rope and acorn shells to craft it.)

All you'll need to do is approach the Clay deposit, wield your shovel, and dig up the Clay. Then, you'll have Clay in your inventory that you can use for anything you choose. There are numerous recipes that use Clay, so don't be afraid to try out the ones that you think will benefit you on your journey!

Clay Locations In Grounded

Clay is a somewhat abundant resource in some areas, while it's much scarcer in others. There are a few places that you can go and reliably find Clay if you're looking to stockpile it. Generally, you'll want to look in areas that are damp, with sprinklers or with water nearby.

First, you can check out the area near the sprinklers in the southeast of the map. It's near the hedges and just above the toxic zone. There are some leaky and broken sprinklers in the area, but you're looking for the ones that actually work.

Once you've found the Oak Lab, there's also an oak tree near it that offers a bunch of Clay near its base. Just approach and start digging to stockpile as much of it as you can before you enter the lab - or on your way out. There are several enemies nearby, so you'll need to be careful and come prepared if you're planning on farming Clay at this location.

While these areas are some of the best spots to gather Clay in Grounded, don't forget that this material tends to spawn in any area that is wet. Be sure to keep an eye out for any terrain near moving bodies or water, or for areas near sprinklers or other sources of water. Clay is an important resource, so don't forget to keep an eye out for it and gather it on your journey.
