The Dome

What Is the Dome?

The Dome is one of the simplest monuments to explore as it doesn’t require you to complete any puzzles, only to complete some parkour. The Dome entrance can be found where the pipes meet the ground. You can then explore the Dome by climbing up and around.

What Type of Loot Spawns?

The loot which spawns on and around the Dome is quite varied. The area underneath the Dome is ripe with Barrels which can be farmed for crude oil which can be smelted within the oil refinery located next to the Dome. On top of the oil silos, normal barrels can be farmed for components, blueprints etc. On top of the Dome, 4 Military Crates can be found which carry the highest-quality loot besides Elite Crates.

Requirements

Harbour

What Is the Harbour?

The Harbour is one of the most common monuments to explore due to the fact that no radiation is emitted at the harbour making it ideal for fresh spawns and players with low-tier loot. The harbour also offers public utilities which include a recycler and a small oil refinery. As the harbour is located right next to the ocean, players often use transport such as a boat or a kayak when coming and leaving.

What Type of Loot Spawns?

Regular loot barrels spawn in and around the harbour. Large wooden crates also spawn inside buildings and train carriages. Green military crates can also be found within containers.
