The game requires you to grind and gather a hefty amount of materials to unlock each character. Metal Accelerant is essential for you to craft a variety of the important parts needed to access each Descendant. Rather than scouring the game’s vast maps and regions, there is thankfully a straightforward way of acquiring Metal Accelerant in The First Descendant. We go over it below!

The First Descendant: How to Get Metal Accelerant

To get Metal Accelerant in The First Descendant, you must either loot Munitions boxes or break open Resource boxes that you come across in the Sterile Lands region. As there is no set location of either Munitions or Resource boxes, your best bet is to roam around the map in Sterile Lands, opening any you find along your path.

Munitions boxes appear as grey cylinders that you can interact with to open. Resource boxes, on the other hand, are smaller orange boxes that you must break open with either a ranged or melee attack. When opening either of these in the Sterile Lands, there’s a good chance you will receive some Metal Accelerant, though it’s not a guarantee. You can get Metal Accelerant while playing on either Normal or Hard difficulty.

Despite no definitive locations for these boxes, thankfully your search for Metal Accelerant is narrowed down to the Sterile Lands only. This will make things far easier when hunting for this elusive material. Just hop into the Sterile Lands and start breaking some boxes!
