Information
Type Miscellaneous
[Source]
Shielded Beakers are usable for medical and chemical experimentation, and storing and transporting small amounts of hazardous materials. While most DNA infusion clipping is done via protein databases, this beaker is still an effective way to test new compounds of both carbon and non-carbon based compounds.

The player can use beakers to carry worms – the ammunition for Viral Proliferator and Annelid Launcher.

Use: Dragging a beaker to a worm pile converts it into ammunition (worm clusters).

Yield: Small beaker = 4 worm clusters; Large beaker = 8 worm clusters

Remarks

  • Worm ammunition stacks in the inventory, but curiously, empty beakers do not

Strategic Analysi

  • If the player intends to specialize on exotic weapons, the player should start cumulating and converting beakers into worms early in the game. They are arguably the rarest form of ammunition
  • When the inventory space is tight, the player should start memorizing closest worm piles to avoid empty beakers taking space needlessly
  • Worm clusters give good Recycler yield for player's not focusing on exotic weapons
