Factorio - Tips and Tricks for Getting Started

Updated: July 1, 2021    


Before you play the Factorio game, you will definitely want to know these simple but useful tips and tricks. If you have any tips feel free to share with us!

Things to Know Before Playing



  • Passive Biters is fine if you don't like having to deal with attacks. Mind your pollution though because nests that get hit will attack.
  • You'll probably need a lot more green circuits than you realize.
  • Don't restart compulsively. If you have a better idea on how to build a base, clear an area nearby and use your first factory to jumpstart the second.
  • Once you get to oil refining, one of the big bottlenecks is that you have to use up all of your liquids. So if you have a full output of heavy oil, empty light oil and empty gas, you have to use up the heavy oil before it spits out more of the others. Storage tanks can help you short term until you find more permanent solutions.
