Where to Find Refined Metal in Dredge

Refined Metal is required for the Tier 2 and Tier 3 Hull upgrades. Unlike Planks or Cloth, this material can’t be obtained by clearing out dredge spots. Instead, it’s only available from merchants for $500 per unit. It’s easiest to get it from the Traveling Merchant. 

Here’s how many units you’ll need for each Hull upgrade:

  • Tier 2 Hull Upgrade: x1 Refined Metal
  • Tier 3 Hull Upgrade: x2 Refined Metal

How to Find the Traveling Merchant

The Traveling Merchant hangs out at the Dusty Pontoon in the Gale Cliffs region. His vessel is in the southeast corner of the map, across from Ingfell, in the northwest part of that island. You’ll have the easiest time finding it when you start at Ingfell and head northwest.  

Expensive at $500 a unit, you’ll need to get rich quick to buy Refined Metal. The nice part of the Traveling Merchant is that he’ll buy your fish and other items, so you can catch two fish with one net.

Stop at a few spots on your way to the Dusty Pontoon if you’re concerned you won’t have enough to cover the amount needed for the Refined Metal and upgrades. 

That’s how to get Refined Metal in Dredge. While relatively straightforward, it can be costly to obtain all three pieces at once. For more help with the game, check out our Dredge guides page
