How to get Bog Iron in Skull and Bones

To get Bog Iron, you first need to get your hands on the pickaxe tool from the Carpenter in Sainte-Anne. For this item, you will need 2 torn sails and 1 broken plank. After this, you simply need to track down the iron and use your pickaxe to harvest it.

Bog Iron looks like shimmering rocks mixed in with the cliff edges of the islands. It can be easy to overlook so make sure you are scanning the cliffs for irregularities. On the map, this resource appears as brownish-red rocks and is typically found on the outer edges of islands. This is unlike copper which is typically found inland.

Once you find some iron, interact with it and follow the prompt on the screen to harvest it. You will want to press the button when the pickaxe is in the green area of the bar. This will get you additional Bog Iron. At most, you will get around 14 iron per node.

Time your hits correctly

Each time you hit the green area during the harvesting minigame, you will get an additional two of the resources you are harvesting. Keep this in mind as you harvest materials. Don’t worry, you won’t be penalized for hitting the yellow area.

You can also get iron from sinking enemy ships out in the ocean. Of course, this isn’t as fruitful as farming the actual nodes on the islands. You can track this material by going to the codex and searching under the raw materials section.

Once you reach this area, follow the island to the south to the Noisy Be area. Follow the channel that goes next to Learnt Men’s Hill and swing east to hit the last node on the small island. You can get even more by sailing up to Sainte-Anne or by heading southeast to Ile Royale.

Even if you choose not to go to the extra islands, you will hit at least six iron nodes, netting you upwards of 80 iron. Not a bad haul at all.
