Do you keep running into dead ends as you’re exploring in Core Keeper? Here’s how to build bridges to cross water and chasms.
You’ll frequently come against a dead end while digging away in Core Keeper. Either you’ll run into a big body of water, or a gaping chasm that seems to lead to nothing but darkness. Thankfully, there is a way to cross both water and chasms, and it’s dead easy. You need to build a bridge.
How to build a bridge in Core Keeper
You can build a bridge very early on in Core Keeper. You’ll need a standard Crafting Bench which can be crafted from your inventory, costing 8 wood. Once you’ve built and placed the Crafting Bench, you can interact with it. On the right-hand menu, you’ll see an option for Bridge. Two sections of bridge will cost you one piece of wood. A bargain! It’s a good idea to build yourself as many bridge pieces as you can afford, as they’ll come in very handy.
Placing a bridge tile is very easy. Ensure it’s in your quick-access inventory, and select it as your active item. When you’re at the edge of a body of water, or at the side of a chasm, press L2 while facing in the direction you want to build a bridge. That’s it! Keep hold of L2 as you move forward, and you’ll keep building a bridge.
Just be careful when building bridges across chasms and water in Core Keeper, because you don’t always know what’s waiting for you at the other side. A chasm often marks the start of a new area, which can be much more deadly than the one you’re leaving. So ensure you’re prepared, and if in doubt… run!
