If you ever wanted to craft the Airstrike, Night Vision Boosters or Timmy’s grenade, you’ll need a bunch of Flourescent mushrooms. It is an important ingredient for several of the blueprints like the ones previously mentioned and is used on other special items. It is also an ingredient for any “freezing” items and blueprint upgrades.
These are the amount of flourescent mushrooms you need if you want to craft the following items.
- Night Vision Booster – 4
- Freezing Shield – 3
- Freezing Throwing Stars – 4
- Freezing Grenades – 3
- Timmy’s Ballet Grenade – 10
- Airstrike – 10
- Stasis Field Projector – 30
- Twilight Phantom – 5
- Origami 101 – 10
Fortunately, there is a simple way to quickly farm Flourescent mushrooms without you having to reload the game, or wait for the day and night cycle.
The location is in the SLUMS on the area marked below. This is on the west most part of the map.
To farm this area, you pick all the mushshrooms you can see and then run away a bit from the area for a few seconds and then come back. When you come back, the flourescent shrooms will have respawned.
Here’s a video demo. (Video credit to user Freakzontour)
It’s not a requirement to run into the direction of building like in the video, but you can also run just around the borders of the gas station for a few seconds and check back on the shrooms.
It’s recommended you clear any zombies first so they don’t get in your way and do this on normal difficulty so the shrooms get pinged on screen.
If you are far away and want to get to this area quick, select Sunny Apartments under the repeatable quest list as your active quest, and then quit the game. When you log in back, you will have spawned outside of the quarantine zone which is nearer to the farm location.
