Iron ingots are one of the most useful ingots in The Blockheads.

Appearance[edit]

Iron ingots are oblongs with rounded ends and shading to suggest additional rounding. To look like iron, it's colored gray with a light top and dark bottom. It can be told apart from steel by its thinner shape and slightly darker overall color.

Where Found[edit]

Iron ingots are sometimes found inside golden chests spawned with a world. They can also obtained as bonuses for meditating or by the use of a gold pickaxe as well as traded for at a trade portal.

The smelting of an iron ingot can be done at any level 2 furnace or higher. They may also be crafted at an electric furnace.
