The Tek Generator can provide devices with electricity without the need of cables. It is able to power all normal electrical devices and it is the only Generator being able to power Tek devices. It is also needed for maintaining underwater bases.

Notes[edit | edit source]

The Tek Generator uses 1 Element.png Element or 100 Element Shard.png Element Shard in 18 hours for the radius 1.0 plus 0.33 for each additional unit of radius. That is

  • on the 2.0× radius 1.33 Element every 18 hours or 1 every ≈13 1⁄2 hours.
  • on the 5.0× radius 2.32 Element every 18 hours or 1 every ≈7 3⁄4 hours.
  • on the largest radius (10.0×) 3.97 Element every 18 hours or 1 every ≈4 1⁄2 hours.
  • Although other Tek structures such as Tek Turrets can be placed on rafts or other mobile bases, the Tek Generator can not, as doing so renders it useless.
  • Prior to 281.107 Tek Generators were affected by electrical storms on Scorched Earth, but are not subject to durability decay.

To unlock the Tekgram for the Tek Generator you have to defeat the Megapithecus.png Megapithecus on medium / beta, the Manticore.png Manticore on easy / gamma difficulty, or the Desert Titan.png Desert Titan.

Fuel[edit | edit source]

An online calculator to see how long the generator will last is available at tristan.games

Coverage[edit | edit source]

  • 3 foundations diameter on 1.0×.
  • 19 foundations diameter on 5.0×.
  • 37 foundations diameter on the 10.0×.
