How to get Obsidian?

Obsidian is a resource that is used for many things. Obsidian is easy to find on mountains and caves. They are smooth black rocks and you have to use a metal pickaxe to get them or you can tame an Ankylosaurus and use that for harvesting obsidian. There are three animals that have reduced weight and that is an Argentavis (50% reduced), Dunkleosteus (75% reduced), and a Ravager (50% reduced), they are good to carry all the obsidian. Be aware it can be dangerous on the mountain, so a good idea is to have a flying dino, that can fly you away from there.

There will spawn some new obsidian over time at the same place. If you need a lot of obsidian I will recommend building a base close to the volcano or the big mountain on The Island map.

On the map Scorched Earth it can be found in the artifact caves.
