KUB is used in almost every recipe and everytime you want to level up, so you really cannot do anything without it. If you want to know how to get the most of Kuban Energy in MGS, then follow our quick guide below.

How to Get Kuban Energy in Metal Gear Survive

You'll find KUB all over the place during missions in Metal Gear Survive

Gather Kuban Crystals

As you go along on your missions, you will come across clusters of Kuban Crystals, which can be broken into fragments. When you collect these fragments, they give you Kuban Energy (about 300 for a fragment).

So collect as many of these fragments as you can, as this is probably the easiest and the safest way to collect KUB in MGS Survive.

Kill Wanderers

Wanderers are zombie-like creatures in MGS Survive that attack in waves, meaning that they will come at you in groups of five or more. You can set up a fence in some tight spot so that they can’t get to you, while you can easily kill them with a spear from your hideout.

When you kill them all, you can remove your fence and start collecting Kuban Energy from the dead Wanderers. Each one will give you about 100-400 KUB, which will quickly stack up in case you kill 10 or more at once.

Finish Salvage Missions

After you’ve done your first Singularity mission, you can start joining Salvage missions — by far the best and most efficient way of getting new materials, KUB, and battle points.

During the missions, you need to set up an extractor and start clearing the waves of wanderers. The extractor will gather energy, and if you successfully finish the mission and withstand all three waves of wanderers, you will be rewarded with a lot of Kuban Energy (the amount depends on the difficulty you’ve chosen).

These are the three available ways of getting Kuban Energy in the game, and if you’re looking for other Metal Gear Survive guides at GameSkinny, then follow the links below:
