Journey To The Savage Planet Javelin Fuel Sources Guide

Even if you’ve defeated Journey to the Savage Planet‘s bosses, you still need to figure out how to get off the darned planet. This guide tells you the locations of Javelin Fuel Sources so you can complete this side objective.

Note 1: Some locations may be unreachable unless you have fully upgraded your gadgets (ie. Quadruple Thrusters). If you need help with upgrades, we’ve got you covered with our Science Experiments and Explorer Rank mini-guide.

Note 2: You only need five Javelin Fuel Sources to finish this objective. However, there are actually 10 of these hidden throughout Journey to the Savage Planet.
