Wondering how to increase your carrying capacity so that you can carry more Grass Planks and Stems in Grounded? Don’t worry we got you.

Grounded – How to carry more Grass Planks and Weed Stems

In order to survive longer in Grounded you have to make sure that you have a safe location where you can take shelter and protect yourself when danger is nearby. For that you need to obviously build a shelter of your own. Now, building a house consisting of 4 walls is not that hard. All you need is 16 Grass Planks and you are done. The problem arises once you start building those extra stuff.

You can add doors, walls, floors, stairs and lot of other stuff to your building. And in order to build these you need a lot of resources, especially Grass Planks and Weed Stems.

The issue is you can only carry 5 planks or stems by default. And considering that a single wall requires 4 Grass Planks, building a decent house would require some really heavy grinding.

Fortunately, there is a way to increase your carrying capacity. And you would actually be able to carry 8 Grass Planks or Weed Stems. Which means you would be able to build 2 walls after a single carrying session. So, how to do that?


How to increase carrying capacity

In order to increase your carrying capacity from 5 to 8, you need the Ant Armor Set. The Ant Armor Set consists of the Ant Helmet, the Ant Arm Guards and the Ant Knee Guards. Every Ant Armor Part gives +1 Hauling Strength. That means the more parts you have equipped, the more will be your carrying capacity. As far as my knowledge goes, there are a total of 3 parts to every armor set. Here is how to craft the Ant Armor Set:
