Iron is the last resource to be unlocked in Boom Beach. It is used almost exclusively for upgrading your buildings to their final few levels. You are only able to generate Iron once you unlock the Iron Mine at Level 10. As a result, it is the most precious of the standard resources and you will only start to accrue serious amounts once you get to have a high-level Headquarters.

Generating Iron

The main way to generate Iron is to construct an Iron Mine. You can only have one of these in your base, regardless of what level your Headquarters is. You will receive a certain amount of Iron every hour, though of course you can collect smaller amounts as soon as it is produced. Below you will find details on what level the Iron Mine produces certain amounts of Iron, which is helpful in deciding whether it is worth upgrading and planning your resources appropriately.

You can also get Iron by capturing resource bases. This means you will receive a boat-load of Iron from this base periodically. You can also get Iron from conquering enemy bases.
