Grounded: How To Get Grave Robbery BURG.L Chip

A step-by-step guide on completing the Grave Robbery Quest

Grounded allows you to explore and build your base using all the materials around you, for example, using grass to create floors. To progress through the game and improve your gear by unlocking new workstations and items, you need to collect a resource called Raw Science. One way to do so is by collecting BURG.L Chips, namely the Grave Robbery chip In Grounded.

Key Takeaways
  • Earn Raw Science by completing BURG.L’s daily and repeatable bounties and tasks.
  • The Grave Robbery Chipsleuth Quest is one of BURG.L’s bounties.
  • Activate the Mysterious Machine and head to the oak tree’s back to find and rescue BURG.L in the Oak Lab.
  • The “Grave Robbery” BURG.L chip quest suggests searching underground, near or inside an ant hill.

Getting Raw Science

Raw Science is the main currency of Grounded. Raw Science is used to discover new recipes and workstations that help you create new and more vital gear and allow you to progress further in the game. There are only a few ways to earn Raw Science:

  1. Analysis Computers: Analyze materials to earn Raw Science. Frequent use increases recharge time.
  2. Floating Orbs: Collect orbs in the backyard for Raw Science, though they’re rare.
  3. BURG.L’s Bounties: Complete tasks from BURG.L for Raw Science rewards, with some tasks being repeatable.

Finding the Grave Robbery Chipsleuth Quest 

One of BURG.L’s bounties entrusts you with the vital task of finding the chip itself. So this guide will go through the step-by-step process of getting and completing this quest. 

  1. Accessing the Oak Lab: Activate the Mysterious Machine to cause an explosion near the oak tree. Investigate the backside of the oak tree to find the entrance to the Oak Lab.

  2. Rescuing BURG.L: In the Oak Lab, locate BURG.L, who has fallen over. Help him up, and he will explain his backstory and offer you bounties. He will task you with finding the Hedge Lab and give you access to the Science Shop.

  3. Chipsleuth Quest: One of the bounties BURG.L offers is the Chipsleuth Quest, specifically to find the “Grave Robbery” BURG.L Chip. The quest hint suggests going underground into a rooted cave system and mentions a tunnel of red, indicating a room full of red ants.

  4. Finding the Chip: Follow the hint provided by BURG.L’s quest description to locate the chip. Head to the west of a hill, navigate through a rooted room, and look for a tunnel of red ants. Proceed down the hole to find the chip and complete the quest.

The Hunt for the Chip Begins

To begin the quest for the chip, you must navigate through an ant nest filled with challenging ants, including giant soldiers and smaller workers. However, you can make this journey easier by crafting the Red Ant Armor, which allows you to move past ants without fighting.

To create the armor, first, analyze a Red Ant Part on a computer analyzer and reach Brainpower Level. Then, craft the Red Ant Armor set, which consists of:

  • Red Ant Helmet: Defense 2, Resistance 2.5%
  • Red Ant Arm Guards: Defense 3.5%, Resistance 5%
  • Red Ant Knee Guards: Defense 2%, Resistance 2.5%

This armor boosts your hauling strength, accelerates grass harvesting, and makes red ants view you as a neutral ally, preventing attacks by Soldier Ants in the nest.

Making the Armor Set

To craft the set, you’ll need:

  • 1 Red Ant Head
  • 14 Red Ant Parts
  • 2 Acid Glands
  • 2 Crude Rope
  • 11 Mite Fuzz

Collect Red Ant Parts from red worker and soldier ants. Hunt for Acid Glands from larva and red soldier ants, but be cautious when engaging them. Craft Crude Rope using Plant Fibers, and gather Mite Fuzz by defeating Lawn mites, which are abundant in the grassland biome and can be found under one of the three lasers during the main storyline.

Navigating The Ant Nest

Now all that’s left is to head into the nest and find the chip. The nest itself is located northwest of the first field station.

When entering the nest, ensure you have a torch at the ready and refrain from stealing any Ant Eggs. Because if you do so, all ants in your immediate vicinity will turn hostile and attack you. Be careful not to attack any ants while you’re down there. Otherwise, you’ll be in for a hell of a tough time. Stock up on food and water, and then head on in.

Venture into the cave system and stick close to the left wall. At the first crossroads, you’ll notice a bunch of roots extruding from the walls. Take a left turn from here and head into the roots.

Afterward, continue going deeper into the cave and take the right path at the next crossroads and continue to head right.

At the end of the tunnel, you’ll find some cookie sandwich bits on the ground and a giant Sturdy Quartzite boulder. Next to which, you’ll find the Grave Robbery chip in Grounded.

After exiting the cave, return to BURG.L in the Oak Lab to give him the chip to collect your reward and unlock new upgrades.
