The Metal Extractor is a level 1 structure available to both the ARM and the CORE. It extracts Metal from Metal Deposits and adds to the player's metal production a number proportional to the size of the Metal Deposit, which usually ranges from +0.8 to +2.1; its maximum output is +2.3, however it can only reach this number in the Core Prime world. Because it consumes only -3 Energy when operational, is very quick to build and provides metal better than the Metal Maker, it is an invaluable structure to any Commander especially in the early stages of the game.

Commander's HandbookEdit

COREEdit

CORMEX
Metal Extractor
Place metal extractors over metal ores in order to collect metal as quickly as possible. The faster a Metal Extractor spins, the faster it is collecting metal.

ARMEdit

ARMMEX
Metal Extractor
This is used to extract metal from the ground. Metal Extractors are best placed over metal deposits though they can find a little metal anywhere. The faster a Metal Extractor spins, the more metal it is extracting.

AppearanceEdit

COREEdit

The CORE Metal Extractor resembles a bunker with a three-ended crank that constantly spins. When switched off, it slows down until it stops, and then it rights itself so it can be lowered into the structure.

ARMEdit

The ARM Metal Extractor is more simplistic in design than its CORE counterpart. It resembles a two-ended crank that constantly spins. When switched off, it slows down until it stops.

TriviaEdit

  • While the CORE Metal Extractor does have its own unique unit sounds, an error in the game's files prevents these sounds from playing.
