As you can probably guess due to the name, The Cycle Frontier Waterweed Filament location is around bodies of water. They can be found on the ground and are super easy to spot if you know what they look like. All you need to do then is go up to them and hit the interact button to pick them up. Additionally, if you’re desperate to get out with them why not drop them into your Safe Pockets just in case you die.

In the Bright Sands region of Fortuna III your best bet for snagging The Cycle Frontier Waterweed Filament resource is to head to the banks of the Swamp in the south-west, and then in and around the Lake next to the Waterfall Lab in the north-east.

While there aren’t as many clear loot spots for the Waterweed Filament on the harder Crescent Falls region, heading to the Lagoon Thermal Ponds or next to the Lakeside Building nets you a good spawn chance.

What are the uses for Waterweed Filament?

The primary use of The Cycle Frontier Waterweed Filament is to craft Combat Stims which you can bring into raid to heal yourself. You will need two Old medicine, one Pale Ivy Blossom, and two of our Waterweed Filaments to craft the healing item at the workbench. 

Whilst this is not the strongest medical consumable in the game, it is the stim that provides the most healing, making it the most efficient for use in the heat of the battle with its three-second use time. 

Furthermore, it is needed for some Osiris missions, so knowing where to find the precious resource can prove very valuable information in the progression of your prospecting career.

Can you farm Waterweed Filament?

The good news is that you can absolutely farm The Cycle Frontier Waterweed Filament, and it is an easy process to do so.

All you need to do is find a location that has a fair amount of Waterweed Filament not too far from each other - the hotspots mentioned above are a great place to start - and then start picking. 

The great thing is that there is a The Cycle Frontier loot respawn mechanic, meaning that all of the resources you’ve just gathered will respawn in just a couple of minutes, so you can pick to your heart’s content - if you can stay alive that is.

So, that should be everything you need to know about how to find and use The Cycle Frontier Waterweed Filament. If you’re stuck and unable to even get into Frontier III, however, make sure to check out our The Cycle Frontier matchmaking error guide for all the help you need.
