How to get and find the anthill BURG.L Chip in Grounded
Research chips are unique items in Grounded that can be used to unlock new crafting recipes and generate raw science for your research efforts. These chips are scatted all over the map, and you need to find them for various tasks to complete. The chips should be taken to the BURG.L robot found near the big oak tree to turn in, so you want to hold onto the chips you find until then. One of the earliest is the anthill BURG.L Chip, which can be found in a specific anthill near the beginning of the game.
In this instance, you want to head to the northern part of the map, toward the western edge.
How to get into the anthill
Getting to the location isn’t too hard. This anthill is meant to be the first one you come across in the game. As you’re venturing closer, you will find that there will be some worker ants milling about the region, whose numbers get thicker as you get closer to the hill. Use the image above to know where to head. Be aware that the workers won’t attack unless first attacked. That means that you can safely ignore most of them and move in closer. You will want to be very careful around the soldier ants though. If you initiate combat against a worker or soldier, they will alert more soldier ants and make your approach much more difficult.
Once you’ve made it into the anthill, it’s time to find the chip.
How to find the anthill BURG.L Chip
After getting inside the anthill, it’s time to be very careful. The BURG.L research chip is deep within the catacombs of the deeper hill, so you need to spend some time here. There are lots of twists and turns here, so just move carefully. Bringing a torch can make it easier to move around. The worker ants will ignore you, but the soldiers will attack on sight in the colony proper. You will want to get some decent armor and weapons before embarking on this trek.
Your goal when looking for the chip is the food chamber. There will be lots of soldiers when you reach the food chambers. You will know you hit the right place when you see a bunch of food scattered about the place. The BURG.L research chip is inside one of the food chambers. Check against the walls and corners of the rooms in this area until you find what you’re looking for.
After you find it, take it back to BURG.L robot and turn it in. This will give you a big block of raw science to turn into whatever you want.
