Want to know how you can craft Ziplines in Grounded?
There are tons of areas to go to in Grounded. Given that you were shrunken down, exploring the Backyard is not as easy as it may look. Fortunately, the game allows you to create Ziplines that make traveling much easier.
Once you have unlocked the recipe, ziplines and wall anchors can be set up anywhere on the map and then connected to each other.
Of course, the player cannot go up Ziplines, and the speed of transport is dependent on how steep the angle is. But if the players need to move a bunch of large materials, like a harvest of weed stems, they can tie them up to the Zipline.
To help you out, we have decided to make a guide on how to unlock and craft ziplines in Grounded.
Let’s dive right in!
The initial step to unlocking Ziplines in Grounded is finding and entering the Hedge Lab. Like most things in the game, the Zipline Anchors are blueprints that BURG.L will sell to you once an appropriate chip has been found.
For Ziplines, that chip is the Hedge BURG.L Chip, found all the way in the back of the spider-infested Hedge Lab.
Once the player finds all the password segments and enters the back end of the Hedge Lab, they should be able to grab the chip and leave the abandoned spider-infested lab.
After giving the Hedge Chip to BURG.L, you can buy the zipline blueprint from him for 2500 Raw Science and then craft the Zipline Anchors. The most important material needed for the ziplines is web fiber or spider silk in the game’s early versions.
There are also other materials needed, like bee stingers, weed stems, and clay. However, those are only for crafting the anchor points.
Silk Rope, spun from a webbed finger on a spinning wheel at a one-to-one ratio, is required not only for the anchor points but for the actual zip lines connecting them across the map. The cost in Silk Rope increases depending on how far the other anchor point is. However, players can have as many lines extending out from the anchor as they wish.
Overall, it should not be hard for players to get the clay and weed stems since all they need to do is dig up the rocks next to lakes/ponds and chop down a few dandelions.
The web finger is not hard to find either in the game, but the bee stinger, obtained from bees, is a bit tricker. Bees in the game fly through the Backyard’s sky and are only hostile in the Picnic Table biome, close to the honey pot.
The best way to get them in Grounded is with a bow and arrow or try and sneak up on the ones at the Picnic Table.
