The Extractinator is an item that turns Silt, Slush and Desert Fossils into more valuable items such as Ores, Coins, and Gems. It can be found rarely in Gold Chests and Wooden Crates and occasionally in Ice Chests (each Ice Chest has approximately a 5% chance of containing one). Another way to obtain it is to locate one standing in Underground Cabins within the Underground Desert. To use the Extractinator, first place it in the world, then place appropriate blocks directly on the Extractinator within its 3×3 frame.

Feeding blocks to the Extractinator is the only way to obtain Amber and Amber Mosquitos, and the only reliable way to get a world's alternate Ores along with Fishing for Crates.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The world-generated ores appear with equal chances as their alternates, e.g. the Extractinator produces an equal chance of Gold Ore and Platinum Ore, no matter which is found underground in that world.
  • The Extractinator will not provide Hardmode ores even if the world is in Hardmode. It will not produce high-tier pre-hardmode ores such as Demonite, either.
  • There is a chance to gain any of the 4 coin types: Copper, Silver, Gold, Platinum. For each type, from 1-104 can be dropped with varying odds. Copper appears more frequently than Silver, Silver appears much more frequently than Gold, and Platinum is extremely rare.
  • A full stack of 999 silt or slush blocks yields a fair collection of loot. If sold off, it can yield an average of about 55 Gold Coin, with about a 1 in 8 chance of a platinum jackpot.
    • The chance at a pet dinosaur comes out to 1 Gold Coin 35 Silver Coin.
    • The ores are worth 8 Gold Coin 44 Silver Coin.
    • The gems would be salable for 4 Gold Coin 68 Silver Coin "as is", but bring 20 Gold Coin 84 Silver Coin when mostly converted to Stained Glass.
      • Amber can't be turned into stained glass, but it can be used in Crate Potions to gain crate loot worth far more than the amber's sale price.
    • The coins average a total of 38 Gold Coin 30 Silver Coin, but there's a trick here: Almost half of that comes from the chance of getting platinum! It's better to think of this as averaging 20 Gold Coin, with some chance of a jackpot.
    • If processing Desert Fossils instead, the resulting Sturdy Fossils can be turned into Bone Throwing Knives and sold for 3 Gold Coin 60 Silver Coin.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Brick Layer and Architect Gizmo Pack are useful for processing silt, slush and fossils more quickly.
  • If processing a large quantity of silt, slush, or fossils, it may be helpful to clear out inventory space so items are not deposited on the ground.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When moused over on the map, its name appears as "Silt Extractinator".

History[edit | edit source]

  • Can now be found in fishing crates.
  • Can now process Desert Fossils.
  • Desktop 1.2.3: Now only consumes one silt/slush block. Instead of consuming 2 blocks, extractinating has a chance of giving a smaller amount of money.
