The Cycle: Frontier Printing Recipes Guide

The Cycle Frontier Printing Recipes

You will be spending a lot of time farming resources to print (craft) items in The Cycle: Frontier. You might not find the need to print weapons and armor early on but as you advance, being able to print a specific piece of equipment will give your character a massive boost in the game.

Not to mention that some high-level items can only be printed. There is no other way to obtain them except by understanding how the crafting mechanics work in The Cycle: Frontier.

You will naturally need a printing recipe first to know its required resources. Once you are all set, just head over to the Gear Printer at the Prospect Station to begin printing. Do note that printing takes time. Armor, for example, takes the most time to print. Consumables on the other hand take the least amount of time to print.

It is highly recommended to print rare backpacks and armor as soon as possible. They will help you stack more printing resources when farming in dangerous areas.

The following guide will list all of the major printing recipes you need to know in The Cycle: Frontier.
